We are reaching out for a veterinarian interested in joining a veterinary hospital whose focus is to practice high quality medicine and surgery, while establishing lasting bonds with our clients and their pets. The practice is near the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and is within 45 minutes of Asheville, Charlotte, and Blowing Rock. This area offers plenty of hiking, mountain biking, boating, skiing, fishing, craft beer pubs, and music for all.
We would prefer an experienced veterinarian, but welcome new veterinary graduates who have worked as veterinary technicians at hospitals prior to school. We believe it is important to provide mentorship to newer veterinary graduates to insure excellent communication skills with owners and to develop appropriate work-up plans for all medical cases and the advancement of surgical skills. Our veterinary support team is well informed and plays an integral role in providing excellent medical care to our patients and customer service to our clients. We manage 98% of our cases in house including medicine and surgical cases and refer very few cases out. We have several veterinary offices in the Hickory area and use a network of 7 of our own doctors to discuss more difficult cases with each other as needed.
Our veterinarians and veterinary support staff participate in daily rounds and monthly staff meetings. Our veterinary practice is paperless, and includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, digital x-ray, diagnostic ultrasound exams, and a closely supervised hospitalization area.
Compensation includes base salary plus production bonus and benefits for full-time candidates includes health insurance, CE, licenses, and dues.
