Unique small animal practice in Conyers, Georgia with every weekend off!
Remarkable progressive privately-owned small animal practice in a pastoral setting on 25 acres in Conyers, Georgia. Kids love the cows! Our practice is named Budget Vet because we create treatment plans that fit within our clients’ budgets. We have a wide variety of case-mix and budgets. We get great satisfaction in seeing the joy on our clients' faces when they realize they can afford to properly care for their pets. We are family and we take care of each other. We care more about the clients and their pets than we do about the bottom line. Conyers is 24 miles east of Atlanta. One reviewer said, “The Conyers community is like one big family. The people are always willing to help out. Even though Conyers it’s self is not big the people have a big heart.” Another says, ‘’Ilove how Conyers is very family-friendly. It's a diverse city with many stores, restaurants, parks, and great schools.”

Flat salary ($85K for new grads, $100-125 for experienced veterinarians),
Over the past 18 years, I’ve placed veterinarians and hospital managers with the top 20% of veterinary practices. As both an independent veterinarian recruiter and career/life coach, I bring additional expertise to you to support your job search. Recently, one of my veterinarian candidates said, "as an independent recruiter, you are like an impartial third party. I feel I can get the real story about the practices from you!"
For you the practice owner, I am able to increase employee retention due to a unique program based on both my expertise in coaching and recruiting. It's called the Veterinary Retention Program. It helps you, the owner, maintain your high level of clinical excellence and customer service, gives you that competitive advantage in the market place and most importantly, keep staff. I find exceptional veterinarian candidates who are self-motivated, flexible, competent and passionate about veterinary medicine.
