How does 17 weeks off a year with no emergency hours or calls sound to you? Can you imagine yourself tailgating at West Virginia University for football games every fall? Boating on the river every weekend during the summer? What about experiencing the Greenbrier Classic with all of our favorite golfers? Walking down the historical streets of our state capital during art walks? State fair? Concerts? Hiking through Hawks Nest or visiting the New River Gorge and participating in Bridge Day? Skiing every winter at an amazing and breathtaking resort? Are you a wine connoisseur? the Wine and Jazz Festival is a relaxing and fun event that takes place every year in downtown Charleston. Also, Florida is only a 1 hour and 45 minute flight!
The list of things that our beautiful and humble state has to offer is endless. Our practice also offers a ton of amazing qualities and opportunities. We pride ourselves in keeping our clients and their pets as healthy and as happy as possible.
Gateway Animal Hospital is excited to be seeking a new full time veterinarian. We are located in Saint Albans, WV. We also have a second location, North Gateway Animal Hospital, in Charleston, WV.
We are a busy walk-in practice, serving pets and their families for over 50 years. Our doctors perform routine spay and neuter procedures as well as soft tissue and orthopedic procedures. We are a small companion practice and also offer equine services, full grooming, and dental services.
Our current team consists of 3 doctors that rotate working 2 weeks on and getting the 3rd week off. Resulting in 17 full weeks off a year. No emergency calls or emergency hours. We have the support of a local emergency clinic. The only on-call duties are rotating weekend and holiday duties for in-house patients. We are open-minded to other scheduling as well. We have a full, educated, and compassionate staff at both locations with the support of experienced practitioners for mentorship.
We offer a competitive salary. We pay 100% of health insurance costs for doctors and their families and give 100% discounts for personal pets as well. We pay malpractice insurance through AVMA's PLIT Program and all licenses and membership fees such as AVMA and CE meetings are paid for (including travel, meals, hotel, wet labs, and meeting fees.) We offer a retirement plan with matching funds by the company. We also have an exciting bonus program which is rewarded by the overall productions of both hospitals as a team.
We are very proud of our updated facilities with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our clinics are fully equipped with digital radiography, endoscopy, and Companion Laser Therapy. We offer a wide range of in-house diagnostics, as well as an outside reference laboratory.
