This isn't your Grandpa's equine clinic! We are a fun, family-focused, extremely efficient practice with a diverse case load. Work-life harmony is a priority, and we truly believe that (emergencies excepted) we are done being vets at 5 pm. We see everything from back yard pets to high level performance horses, and everything in between. If you are after variety in your work day, Iowa Equine might be a good fit. We offer all the toys (digital radiology, ultrasound, gastroscopy, endoscopy, K Laser, PRP, shockwave, modern dental equipment, cloud based software), and have extremely capable, self sufficient technicians and staff to make our lives easy. We focus on quality of life and truly enjoy working together!
Other benefits include:
Shared on call- one week on, two weeks off
Flexible 4 day work week
4 weeks paid vacation
CE stipend, dues, malpractice insurance
Climate controlled treatment area
14 stall barn
Fully stocked vehicle
A part time option is available
Our practice is located near Des Moines where you would have access to: headline concerts, excellent restaurants, amateur sports teams, a nationally recognized symphony, theatre, wineries, breweries (to keep the symphony interesting), and so much more! Enjoy being a horse vet but having a family and personal life too!
We are seeking someone who is looking for long term career placement. It is a priority for us to have a positive, fun, collegial work environment and finding a good fit is at the top of our list; attitude first, medical wizardry second. We currently have a very strong reproductive and sports medicine presence in our region and the ideal candidate would bring a complementary set of skills to the practice. We are always proactive and willing to invest in the interests of our staff and veterinarians; if you have been looking to expand your skill set, we truly enjoy supporting career growth. We are looking for someone with confidence in their competence. We are not in a position to offer intense mentorship to budding veterinarians but we do often collaborate on cases and believe in a team approach to case management. Our clients are important to us, and we have worked hard to cultivate positive relationships, as such, a successful applicant will have excellent communication skills and understand the importance of honest, clear communication.
