Associate Veterinarian

Job Description
We are looking for the right person to add to our growing practice. You need to be an experienced small animal practitioner looking for either a PT or FT position. Our ideal candidate is compassionate, considerate, gregarious, hands-on, thoughtful, hard-working and respectful to team members, clients and patients. Our team is creative with a great work ethic and our clients are well-educated and expect thorough communication regarding their pets.

NOTES: US Residents Only.
Additional Salary Information: Dependent upon experience and hours worked.

Requirements
We are looking for a team player who is respectful of all team members. We strongly believe that every position in our hospital is essential to the service we provide. Our doctors, our technicians, and our receptionists all make great contributions towards our hospital goals.

Our clients expect our doctors to perform procedures in their presence. We very rarely take patients "into the back". Blood draws, nail trims, ear cleanings, and even cystocentesis and other minor procedures are performed with the owner present. We have nothing to hide and feel strongly that it adds to client education, increases the value of the services we provide, improves client bonding, and lowers both client and patient anxiety.

We schedule 30 minute appointments to allow time for good communication and gentle calm handling of our patients.

Our hospital gross has increased every year since we opened in 2004. Our owner now has more ideas than time available to organize and implement these ideas into the practice. Another veterinarian will give our owner the extra management time needed for that implementation. We also welcome a new perspective and a new set of ideas to incorporate from the doctor we choose to be part of our team.
Community support and interaction is an important part of our practice and we do expect our new doctor to participate in some or all of these events with us.
