We are a four-doctor small animal practice 35 miles northwest of Chicago looking for an experienced associate veterinarian to work around 20-30 hours/week. We foster a good working environment. That -- and friendly employees -- is why many of our staff members have been with us over 20 years. It’s important that you play well with others!
Vernon Hills Animal Hospital was founded 32 years ago. We are fortunate to have a good client demographic, many of whom have the means to take excellent care of their pets. We are also close to a number of referral centers. In addition to dogs and cats, we see a lot of reptiles and small mammals. Knowledge of these pets isn’t required, but certainly appreciated! Three of our veterinarians see exotics, so some mentoring is available if you have an interest.
Our goal has never been to have a huge practice -- we really like to keep it small and personal. Our appointments range from 20 to 40 minutes. We’re continually trying to improve our service with staff training. We have monthly meetings to review phone calls, something we do to help our practice connect better with clients. We believe in “fear-free” handling, and are a Cat Friendly Practice, another program that helps us understand our patients better.
The schedule will involve some mornings, some evenings, and Saturdays until 1 PM. We're flexible with time off.
We have digital radiology, digital dental radiology. a CO2 surgical laser, a therapeutic laser, and many other updated pieces of equipment.

Licensed veterinarian in Illinois with several years of experience.
Additional Salary Information: The salary will be a guaranteed baseline with quarterly bonuses based on production.
