Bay Beach Veterinary Hospital (BBVH), a thriving general and emergency small animal practice in Virginia Beach, Virginia, is searching for a full-time emergency veterinarian.
We are privately owned, have excellent support staff, and an excellent working environment.
Come join our team of rock star vets! We are lucky to have some of the most brilliant, most fun, most amazing doctors on staff.
We offer competitive salary and benefits, a great hospital, and a schedule unlike any other! We value work/life balance and work constantly to maintain an environment that allows you to love your job every day. We are a progressive hospital, from our medicine to our leadership.
Our hospital is committed to supporting our doctors. We work continuously to improve workflow and efficiency. We are adding additional doctors to our team so that we can provide our doctors with plenty of time off to actually live their lives (as regular humans). It is incredibly important to us that you love your career, you love the good work you are doing, and we will do everything we can to protect that.
Virginia Beach is a unique community in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Tidal creeks run throughout our city feeding the Lynnhaven River and Chesapeake Bay. The Blue Ridge Mountains are a few hours away. We have all the shopping you could dream of, great restaurants, local breweries, community events, and just about anything else you can imagine. We are a pretty big city with a small town feel. Come join our family! We look forward to meeting you! If this post lacks precisely what you are looking for, please contact us. You will be amazed at how flexible we can be.
Our hospital offers excellent benefits including generous CE allowance, vacation time, 100% paid health insurance, 401k, profit sharing, scrub allowance, excellent employee discount, paid dues to professional organizations, and licensing, of course. Benefits are negotiable- if there is a benefit not listed that you are looking for, simply ask.
You must be able to help staff lift anything over 40lbs if necessary.
You must show up to work on time, dressed cleanly and without odor and expect to leave work a little late, a little sloppy, and a little stinky. We always do try to get you out of here on time!
You must be able to tolerate awful smells, disgusting body fluids and discharges, loud noises, clients without money, crying humans, and unwashed dog coats on rainy days.
You must be able to love the angry cat that wants to claw your eyes out and work towards providing the best care to the patient while protecting the safety of the staff and the patient itself. You really, truly, genuinely must love animals and want to help them. For real.
You must have a strong appreciation of the human/animal bond and provide the respect and care it deserves.
Must be able to work long hours, sometimes sitting, sometimes standing. Must be able to stoop, bend and crawl, as necessary.
Must be able to multi-task and direct patient care, sometimes while eating your dinner.
We all laugh, and cry, and get frustrated- this keeps us human. You must be committed to supporting the staff as they support you. Our jobs can be hard and we must all work together so that we can do the most good for our patients and clients.
Additional Salary Information: We pay salary without commission. Your pay is guaranteed from month to month. You will be paid hourly for additional shifts you work once your schedule is agreed upon.
