Northwest Veterinary Clinic is looking for a FT equine associate to join our mixed animal practice. We are a long established part of the Snohomish County and Island County communities celebrating our centennial year in 2017. This position is primarily ambulatory and comes with a fully stocked 2008 Chevrolet extended cab pickup and Triple Crown unit. Skills needed include lameness, internal medicine, repro, dentistry, field surgery, communication and social media. Our patients include sport horses to miniatures, western performance to back yard pets and award winning vaulting draft horses to weekend warriors.
We have a fairly extensive complement of diagnostic equipment available which includes digital x-ray, digital ultrasound, endoscopy, in house Abxais lab equipment, StableLab serum amyloid A, and twice daily pickups for Antech reference lab. In addition since we are affiliated with Mount Vernon Veterinary Hospital we have access to a 3 meter gastroscope, additional rigid and flexible endoscopes, surgical suite, and an 8 stall hospital facility and AI center. For more extensive work-ups including MRI we have a large referral hospital 30 minutes away. You will also have the support and collaboration of 5 experienced equine veterinarians in our group, including a board certified equine surgeon.
We encourage participation in community activities including client education seminars, vaccination clinics, presentations to pony clubs, bowling league, Kiwaniis, Rotary, etc. We also are actively engaged in social media via Facebook Twitter, and our website. Our publicity and marketing person, Julie, provides support in this area and is very active in the horse community.
Salary includes a base salary and production bonus compensation. ER fees are also included in the package. Benefits include medical/dental/vision insurance, professional liability, professional dues, CE allowance, paid vacation and holidays, sick leave, pet care discounts (we have 3 small animal veterinarians on our team) and a great support staff to make your day less complicated. Our on call rotation is shared with all the equine veterinarians at Northwest Vet and Mount Vernon Veterinary Hospital.
The area is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts as we are close to the water, salt water and fresh water, the mountains and the beautiful Skagit Valley and San Juan Islands. And if the lights of the big city and it's cultural activities are what you are interested in, Seattle is only an hour away.
