Rose Veterinary Hospital is looking for a full time associate in a busy, growing mixed animal practice. Applicant should be passionate about partnering with clients to provide the best possible care for their animals while treating both animals and owners with the compassion and respect they deserve. We are hoping to find a veterinarian who is interested in staying for the long term. If an associate is a good fit for the practice, future partnership with profit sharing could be available. The associate will be scheduled to work 4 days a week and will be included in a rotating on call schedule for after hours emergencies. We share after hours emergency call with another local veterinary clinic on an alternating week schedule. The associate would split our portion of the on call time approximately 50:50 with Dr. Rose, and would also split oversight of any hospitalized patients when we are off call. Technicians are on call to help with emergencies and to perform after hours care of hospitalized patients when appropriate. A fully equipped truck with a vetbox is provided for ranch/house calls. Applicants can expect to be working with multiple species - dogs, cats, horses, cattle, camelids, and small ruminants are most common. Small animals are the majority of our case load, but there is room for growth in large animal that we can not accommodate with our current staffing. We also occasionally see ferrets, rabbits, and pocket pets. New graduates will be considered, but should have at least a basic knowledge of most of these species and be comfortable working with them. Dr. Rose does not currently see birds or reptiles, but would support an associate that was interested in those species. We are open to adding services that a new associate would be interested in.
