How great would it be to work as an associate veterinarian enjoying 3-days off a week, with techs who are not only competent but enjoyable to be around, flexible and modern-thinking owners (who don't give you a hard time when you feel the need to refer a patient out or your ACT is not the national average), and live near the beaches in Florida?
