Confident new graduates will be considered. Position allows for work family balance, no after hour calls and referral hospitals close by. Close to DC to enjoy, but suburb living with lower cost of living.
We are a full service, privately owned small animal hospital offering routine medical and surgical procedures, dental care services and alternative medicine. We have the ability to run in-house diagnostics with our state of the art Idexx VetLab Station and Digital X-rays, which are fully integrated with our Cornerstone Software.
We are in search of a unique individual, who aspires to make a positive impact on pet health care in our hospital and our community. Our dedicated support team believes in providing only exceptional client service along with up to date, evidence-based medical and surgical care.
Interested candidate should have at least 2 years of clinical experience working in an animal hospital, with excellent communication skills and a compassionate demeanor towards pets and their people. (Confident new graduates considered)
Hours accommodate a balanced work and home life, working every other Saturday, one day off during the week and no after-hour calls!
We do not board or keep animals hospitalized overnight. If a pet needs overnight care or emergency care we have several 24 hour hospitals close to us. You can sleep knowing that you will not come back to a patient left alone in a cage at night.
Our 30 minute appointments allow you time to talk to clients and we have one hour set aside for lunch. Most days there are at least two veterinarians on duty so there is someone to bounce ideas around. (The exception is Saturday...but it is only a half day)
Additional Salary Information: In the past we have paid a straight salary but more recently started a salary plus production. Therefore are open to either, depending on the individual.
About Animal Place Veterinary Hospital
Small animal veterinary hospital which practices both traditional and Chinese Medicine in the Aspen Hill area of Silver Spring. We see all small animals--dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice and just about anything else with fur. Our motto is "Compassionate Care for pet and owner" and we follow this motto on a daily basis.
Two and a half doctor practice (owner is the half--but always around), we bounce ideas and things off each other and respect each other's ideas. Still learning--we believe change is good and are always looking for ways to improve and be challenged.
Respect is the cornerstone of the practice--respecting not only our clients but our staff and fellow doctors. Utilizing as much fear free methods as possible we work to minimize the trauma our patients may feel when walk in the door.
Animal Place Veterinary Hospital opened it's doors in 1997 and we have enjoyed the community's support every since that first day. Located in a strip mall off a busy intersection allows our clients to "pop" in to just say hi at times--as well as go shopping while we treat their pet.
Using both our full in-clinic blood chemistry as well as digital radiographs, allows us to dia...gnose problems rapidly and get our patients the care they need and deserve. We have great specialists close by and refer to them as often as needed. With on after hours calls and a rotating weekend schedule, our doctors are able to maintain a good balance between home life and work. APVH prides itself on being a family friendly practice!
