We are an AAHA accredited & Fear Free principled practice. Privately owned, we currently have 4 full-time doctors, but we are rapidly growing. We’re looking for a part-time OR full-time associate veterinarian to join our wonderful team and help us during this exciting time.
We practice great medicine and we are also blessed with several local specialty centers that we can refer to, as well as 2 local emergency facilities. Many of our nurses are certified and we encourage continuing education for our entire team. Our team is top notch! Not only do our representatives comment on how wonderful they are, so have doctors who have done relief work.
Because we value work life balance, we have modest hours, do not see after hours emergencies and do not take calls. We are closed on Sunday and are open only until noon on Saturday.
We are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service while offering excellent patient care and maintaining a positive working environment.
Our modern 5,000 sq ft small animal practice is equipped with digital records, Idexx lab equipment, digital xray & dentistry, an ultrasound, & therapeutic laser. And we're expanding so that we can continue to practice in a comfortable environment that not only do clients want to visit, but our team wants to work in!
We are located in the St. Louis metropolitan area, only 15 minutes from downtown St. Louis. Not exactly a tropical paradise but we are home to the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team & St. Louis Blues hockey team, as well as the nationally recognized St. Louis Zoo & Forest Park. Relocating? We'll provide funding for that!
The ideal candidate would have excellent communication skills with a commitment to practice high quality medicine. An interest in exotics is ideal, but not necessary. Salary will be production based with a guaranteed base commensurate with experience. We will offer a significant signing bonus ($5,000-$7,500), medical benefits, vision, and an option for dental, an allowance for CE with paid days for CE, a uniform budget, significantly discounted pet care, paid time off, with dues, licensures & a VIN membership paid.
The candidate should have excellent communication skills and be a team player with a positive outlook.
Employer will assist with relocation costs.
