Animal Hospital of Ovilla is a growing, thriving, privately-owned 3-doctor practice in a fast-growing suburb of Dallas, Texas. Because we are so highly regarded in our area, we have a long list of new clients wanting to come to our practice, so we need 1 or even 2 more doctors! We also accept externs.
We offer experienced mentors; a 4-day workweek with no weekends or emergency calls; a generous benefits package; and a cohesive team with no drama. We see small animals and exotics of all kinds. Read our hospital info for all the details!
Whether you’re looking for a place for an externship, or you’re looking ahead to graduation and an associate position, or you're an experienced vet wanting a new home: we’d like to talk to you. If you want to practice high-quality medicine in a collaborative, supportive setting, contact us!
Why should you want to be on our team?
•We let our licensed/certified/experienced technicians use their skills! Our techs do things like draw blood, place catheters, intubate, administer anesthesia, and give injections, as well as providing much of the client education. Our CSRs are treated as the important front line that they are, and are encouraged to get Certified Vet Assistant credentials. With an overall effective full time staff-to-doctor ratio of 6:1, our support staff enable the doctors to focus on practicing medicine.
•We have all the expected toys: digital radiography, digital dental radiography, laser, ultrasound, in-house lab, and fluorescent light therapy.
•We have a newly remodeled and enlarged facility - it's modern and functional.
•We have a great reputation for diagnostics. Other area clinics routinely refer to us.
•We are the only clinic on this side of Dallas that sees exotics, and we get a lot! Hedgehogs, guinea pigs, iguanas, bearded dragons, tortoises, parrots, macaws, chickens, ducks, kangaroos, and prairie dogs, to name a few!
•We provide acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine with a boarded TCVM veterinarian.
•We are independently owned, not part... of a vet hospital corporation. That means we can make our own decisions about how our team wants to practice medicine, and it allows us to be more flexible when staff have personal or family needs.
