Sound Equine Veterinary Hospital, located in the beautiful Puget Sound region, has an opening for a full time associate. Part-time and flexible work schedules also available. Facility could also support a boarded surgeon or internist. We have a great, established clientele who care about their horses, and provide for a variety of horses and cases, including sport horses, rodeo, pleasure, and beloved pets. We offer both in-clinic and ambulatory services, with a fairly light inpatient caseload that could be expanded for convenience and efficiency.
You would enjoy a well-equipped hospital with inside and outside stalls, an arena and a round pen. Diagnostic capabilities include a full on-site lab, digital radiography, and ultrasonography, shockwave, 3m endoscope, and tools needed for regenerative medicine. We also have a surgery suite and recovery stall. A fully equipped truck will be provided.
Our primary focus is to provide great patient care by practicing great medicine and supporting the client’s needs. We work well together, and support each other’s strengths, weaknesses, and interests. We are committed to weekly doctors’ meetings to continue working as a cohesive group. Staff is kind, helpful, and attentive to their doctor’s safety. Doctors can expect to be provided an assistant for the work day to facilitate their efficiency and allow us to better serve clients.
There is a full case load immediately available for the new hire. Emergency coverage duties would likely include every 3rd-4th weekend, and a day or two per week unless more is desired. Because of this full case load, it will not be possible to mentor a veterinarian straight out of vet school, but we would certainly be happy to provide support for someone newly out of an internship.
We are looking for a candidate who is committed to providing the best possible care for hospitalized and ambulatory patients, from an old donkey to a high end sport horse. It is necessary that the candidate is able to articulately and honestly answer questions from clients as they seek our guidance making choices for their equines. Record keeping, timely responses to clients’ questions, prescriptions, and lab results are requirements.
Sound Equine offers company sponsored health, dental, and vision policies, as well as the opportunity to participate in a 401(k) retirement plan, and choose from a variety of critical care, life, and short and long term disability policies. We offer paid time off, company paid CE allowance, professional dues and membership reimbursement, as well as moving assistance and signing bonus for the successful candidate.
The area is beautiful with mild seasons. The Olympic peninsula is to our West, and Seattle is a ferry boat ride away. Mountains, water, forests, and big city interests are all within easy reach.
