Seeking a veterinarian who wants to make a difference in the lives of pets and their people. We are a small animal hospital that loves what we do and love our clients (OK most of them!) but we also appreciate the ability to spend time with family, friends and enjoy the Maryland/DC area. Our schedule allows ample time off, just need the right associate who enjoys practicing medicine.
Animal Place Veterinary Hospital is a small animal clinic in the Silver Spring/Aspen Hill area of Maryland. Established over 21 years ago, it is privately owned and each veterinarian is respected for the way they want to practice. We believe in good medicine and we work hard to provide that for our clients and their pets. We were fear free before it became a catch word!
Fully computerized and digital, you can read the records. Dental radiographs are a standard of care for us with each dental patient getting full mouth radiographs each time.
There are several 24 hour clinics and speciality clinics close by and we use them. Sick patients are not left overnight in cages--and we do not board animals either! So, when you walk out at 6 pm and turn off the lights, you don't have to worry about anyone in the clinic.
Working as a team, we utilize our staff to the fullest of their ability and the staff always has the doctors' back. Most of the staff has been there for at least 3 years, some closer to 18--so longivity is desired.
The schedule requires 38 to 43 hours a week--one day off every week as well as every other Saturday off. Rarely are we working after hours and our day ends at 6 pm. The schedule allows time for you to get outside and have a life out of the clinic!
Ideally, our associate will enjoy a mixture of things--surgery, dental procedures and seeing sick and well patients.
We are a Idexx practice, with Cornerstone software, DR radiographs and the full Idexx blood analysis system--CBC, Chemistry and Urinalysis. We still send in a fair amount of blood and all our fecals to the lab. Our dental radiographs are the only thing different--as it does not "talk" with Cornerstone, but we have the Sopix Dental Radiographs.
We have all the things you will need to practice--and if we don't have something, ask.....you never know if you have an interest and abilty to use it we may get it for you!
We will consider a part timer--but we are so much fun you will want to work full time and share in the fun!
Additional Salary Information: We have Blue Cross medical, dental and vision, C.E allowance, paid time off, paid licenses, SIMPLE IRA and much more.
About Animal Place Veterinary Hospital
Small animal veterinary hospital which practices both traditional and Chinese Medicine in the Aspen Hill area of Silver Spring. We see all small animals--dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice and just about anything else with fur. Our motto is "Compassionate Care for pet and owner" and we follow this motto on a daily basis.
Two and a half doctor practice (owner is the half--but always around), we bounce ideas and things off each other and respect each other's ideas. Still learning--we believe change is good and are always looking for ways to improve and be challenged.
Respect is the cornerstone of the practice--respecting not only our clients but our staff and fellow doctors. Utilizing as much fear free methods as possible we work to minimize the trauma our patients may feel when walk in the door.
Animal Place Veterinary Hospital opened it's doors in 1997 and we have enjoyed the community's support every since that first day. Located in a strip mall off a busy intersection allows our clients to "pop" in to just say hi at times--as well as go shopping while we treat their pet.
Using both our full in-clinic blood chemistry as well as digital radiographs, allows us to dia...gnose problems rapidly and get our patients the care they need and deserve. We have great specialists close by and refer to them as often as needed. With NO after hours calls and a rotating weekend schedule, our doctors are able to maintain a good balance between home life and work. APVH prides itself on being a family friendly practice!
