Barnside Veterinary Hospital
We are a large, modern, privately owned, 13-year-old hospital. Our mission statement is: "Veterinary excellence through education, knowledge and compassion."
The challenges of the past year allowed us to further develop and grow in exciting, new ways. Our tech-heavy, human-friendly hospital provided us many options in caring for our patients. Our spacious exam rooms easily permit in-person exams while maintaining client social-distancing. Or, thanks to Exam Room computers, clients have the ability to elect Zoom-enabled examinations while remaining in their cars. For many years we have utilized a work-flow structure that reduces patient anxiety and client stress, which fortuitously also matches today's societal needs. Our Telemedicine services have been embraced successfully and enthusiastically by our clients. Also, we were thrilled to have a couple of our veterinary students return to us, for an impromptu year-long externship, while they attended veterinary school remotely.

We have always had a “fear-free” approach.
Nice lounge with large library.
Our staff is highly-skilled and drama-free. Staffing for every daytime shift usually comprises 2-3 receptionists, 2-3 highly skilled tech assistants (PER VETERINARIAN) and a kennel assistant. We also ALWAYS have overnight assistants to care for boarders and hospitalized animals.
We're 10 minutes from the beach, 1hr from NYC or Philly. (We're a mostly suburban area, but lots of rural areas for horses, etc.) We have "good" clients, who are loyal and nice. We are active in the community (visiting schools, scout tours, etc), work with the local SPCA and Humane Society, and donate to Heifer International.
We are seeking a full-time or part-time, experienced veterinarian who can independently see appointments. No after-hour emergencies or holidays! (Garden State Vet Specialists and Red Bank Vet Hospital are 5-15 minutes away and NorthStar is 25 minutes west) We see predominantly dogs & cats, but pocket pets are not unusual, and we'll even see the occasional small ruminant, chicken or pot-bellied pig.
Compensation is percentage-based, but the focus is on practicing "good quality medicine" not meeting quotas. Expected compensation is $100,000-$125,000+ for Full-time (average of 3 days a week). Other excellent benefits such as paid leave, Simple IRA (PLUS 3% employer matching), health insurance, paid CE, Organization dues (AVMA, NJVMA, JSVMA) licenses (NJ, CDS, DEA), AVMA-PLIT malpractice insurance with license defense, and generous employee pet discounts are included.
Experienced vets are preferred, but we enthusiastically provide mentoring for new graduates who are eager and have extensive hands-on experience (previous tech-work in vet hospitals, etc). We love practicing veterinary medicine and want new graduates to succeed in a life-long career too!
