At The Village Veterinarian, we're excited to add another veterinarian to our awesome team! We’re an outpatient, small animal, primary care clinic invested in our community with a mission to be a trusted pet-care resource for local families. We strive to support the relationship between families and their pets in a way that honors their own goals and capacity, to have strong relationships with other providers in the area, and to be a great place to work and learn. We pride ourselves on educating our clients to be empowered pet owners.
We are a small animal practice, with a heavy emphasis on wellness, dermatology and client education! Most days offer a mix of annual physicals and medical appointments for illnesses, injuries, itching, lumps, and behavior concerns. We do not do any surgery or dental procedures, but there are some very good practices nearby that we use as referrals. We’re a Gold Certified Cat Friendly Practice with one exam room reserved for cats, and a separate cat ward and isolation room.
Additionally, if you have a strong interest in a certain area of practice, including rehab, holistic medicine or alternative therapies, we’re happy to provide support, training and resources.
We encourage doctors of all experience levels to apply, and those looking for full-time or part-time work. Your work-life balance is one of our top concerns, so we're open 8:30am-5:00pm Monday thru Friday (no weekends or on call).
