Sugar Factory Veterinary Clinic is seeking a full time associate to replace one of our retiring veterinarians. We are a 3 vet mixed animal practice located 40 miles East of Billings, MT and 50 miles West of Sheridan Wyoming. Our caseload consists of 50% beef cattle (primarily cow/calf), 10% equine, and 40% dogs/cats.
Bovine: Our producers are primarily professional ranchers, with an average herd size of 300 head. Our producers are progressive, and a real pleasure to work with. Most herd work is performed on the ranch. The clinic has top quality haul-in facilities for smaller groups of animals (less than 80 head).
We have a fully stocked animal health store (The Vet Barn) on our premise. The store’s manager has over 20 years of experience and oversees our cattle vaccine and supply sales.
Equine: Our equine patients are almost exclusively working ranch horses. We have two sets of stocks, a power float, an ultrasound for pregnancy checks, a padded indoor surgery room, an outdoor round corral, and a number of hospital stalls and paddocks.
Dogs and Cats: We practice high quality medicine in a small town setting. Our in-house lab has a fecal centrifuge, and Abaxis CBC, Chemistry, and PT/PTT analyzers. We also have digital x-ray, a fully equipped dental suite with dental x-ray and dentalaire unit. Our dental suite and surgery rooms are equipped with patient warmers (hot-dog and bair hugger), cardell monitoring systems, and gas anesthesia. All surgery patients undergoing general anesthesia receive IV fluids, intubation, and a staff member dedicated to monitoring anesthesia.
Our staff is extremely knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. Our staff turn over rate is very low. We are highly leveraged and veterinarians in-clinic almost always have 1.5 assistants or licensed technician.
On-call is split three ways between our vets. We have very few after hours calls. We have equine and small animal referral clinics located within 45 minutes.
Benefits currently include health insurance, Paid CE, Paid Vacation, 4 day work week most of the year.
The Area: Hardin is between Sheridan, WY and Billings, MT. You can be in either city, or at an international airport within 45 minutes. The town itself is located on the border of the Crow Indian Reservation. It is a culturally diverse place with a great public school (Class A). We are within 2 hours of some of the prettiest and most accessible mountains in the state. We have a world class fly fishing river right in town. Reservoirs for boating, fishing, camping and swimming are also within 45 minutes.
Must have excellent communication skills and be a go-getter. Experience with livestock is required.
