We are offering a full time position for a second veterinarian interested in small animal and equine medicine, surgery, and field service. Our small animal side includes canine and feline, general medicine, dentistry, surgery, orthopedics and obstetrics. The equine side involves dentistry, lameness exams, and routine healthcare. Housing is available, with laundry and kitchen amenities. This would be a great opportunity to work into ownership of a true mixed animal practice and all that a small town has to offer. We are located in Delta Colorado, a small town of about 9000. The Colorado mountains offer some of the most beautiful and rugged scenery. You can go camping, fishing, biking, hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, and four wheeling all within minutes of the clinic. During the winter, skiing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing is within about an hours drive. We offer local parks and recreation such as the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Colorado National Monument, Ouray Hot Springs, and Montrose Water Sports Park, just to mention a few.

Delta is located in a high desert valley. The area has a mild dry environment with about 8” of moisture during the year but around 100” of snow in the surrounding mountains. We offer extensive trails for hiking, biking and horse back riding with both desert and mountain trails. There are numerous national conservation areas and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. There is Gold Medal Fishing close by with several state parks that offer a variety of fishing opportunities. We are surrounded by the Uncompahgre, Gunnison and Grand Mesa National Forests which include the West Elk, Raggeds, Uncompahgre, and Mount Sneffles Wilderness Areas. We are the home of world class record deer and elk hunting. There are also three 18-hole golf courses within a 20 mile radius of Delta.
