We would love to welcome you to our small animal, private practice in rural Louisa, Virginia. You'll find a wonderful quality of life here in our historically farming community between Charlottesville, Richmond and Fredericksburg. This location means you are near the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, ocean, lakes and D.C. city life along with multitudes of outdoor activities, beautiful countryside and historical areas, yet reasonable land prices, taxes, quite a few colleges and universities, good schools and a friendly small town community.
We are looking for a full time addition to our professional staff of 2 DVMs and 2 LVTs, along with a stable support team that likes and appreciates each other. We see mainly dogs and cats, but also a growing number of exotics (not required) and the occasional "pet" laying hen. We are happy to entertain your practice interests as well.
Interests and skills should include internal medicine, diagnostics and case work up as well as surgery, dentistry, senior and preventative care. In addition, strong ability in communicating with clients, client education, staff education and a fun attitude toward work are appreciated. Multitasking ability, good business sense, time management skills, computer skills and an appreciation for fellow team members also help.
We are nicely equipped with new Heska in house lab equipment, new Cuattro digital xray, cold therapy laser, otic video endoscopy, dental equipment, tonometry and more.
We enjoy a four day work week with rotating Saturday hours. Emergencies are supported by multiple nearby emergency and specialty centers. There is flexibility built into our schedules.
We enjoy being a smaller practice that engages with clients and provides them and their pets thoughtful, up to date, quality medical care and personal service. We really care about our clients and patients. We like being the kind and size of practice where everyone can keep up with the best interests of patients, clients and staff.
Experience is very helpful but we will consider any new graduate capable of working independently with, of course, case discussion and mentoring advice.
There are also possibilities for buying into this established privately owned practice, especially attractive for a veterinarian wanting to own alone or with others to share responsibilities on a part or full time time basis.
Please contact us if interested.
