Pine Bush Equine Services and Veterinary Hospital is seeking an equine ambulatory theriogenologist for a well-established, privately owned equine hospital. We are located in beautiful rural horse country but are less than 80 miles from exciting midtown Manhattan. Applicant must be experienced, motivated, and have an excellent customer service mentality and good communication skills. We seek an individual with a forward-thinking and positive attitude that can function well as a part of our close-knit team. Our facility offers complete support staff, surgical suite, 13 stall barn with climate controlled evaluation areas and stalls. We offer state of the art equipment including multiple digital radiography units, dynamic endoscopy, ultrasonography, video endoscopy, laser therapy with a class IV laser, in house laboratory equipment and up-to-date sports medicine and regenerative therapies. We are a progressive practice with opportunities for future growth for the right candidate. There are 5 experienced ambulatory veterinarians including a board certified surgeon as well as an in house board certified surgeon. We have an established internship program and have accepted 2 interns this year.
Although there is a complete, well -appointed and staffed hospital, the practice is primarily an ambulatory practice. Surgeries are almost all elective. Reproductive work is a prominent part of the practice. We currently perform semen freezing, embryo transfer flushes, hysteroscopy, oviductal hydrotubation, oocyte aspiration, as well as more routine work with stallion collection, artificial insemination and mare and stallion reproductive examinations. We work with several large and reputable racehorse farms as well as smaller dressage and hunter/jumper barns that breed their mares.
Forty percent of our caseload is Standardbreds, both racehorses in training and breeding stock. Additionally, we see a wide variety of sport horses including hunter/jumper, dressage, and Western performance horses. Cases regularly involve all age groups, from foals to geriatrics. Clients are varied and include pet horse farms as well as large show horse barns, western performance barns, commercial breeding farms, local resorts and racetrack work. Pine Bush Equine Services serves as the primary veterinarians for the USDA New York Animal Import Center (one of only three import centers in the United States).
Pine Bush Equine Services schedules appointments Monday-Friday. We provide 24-hour emergency coverage for our clients however all night-time emergency surgery is referred to a local surgical center. On call duty for our full-time practitioners is generally limited to 5 days a month. This may increase slightly in July and August when the interns are new to the practice. We are a team focused practice with a priority on service to the client. There is a team on call during the foaling season to manage dystocia and foaling emergencies.
We offer a starting salary commensurate with experience with incentives based on production. Benefit packages include, medical, vision and dental, paid vacation, continuing education expenses, retirement benefits through an IRA with a contribution matching program, payment of dues for membership in the AVMA and AAEP, Professional Liability Insurance through the AVMA, licensing fees, and a pet care discount.
Currently the reproductive caseload is handled by the practice partner who is well respected and recognized in the industry and has over 30 years of experience as well as the more senior associate. We are committed to expanding and advancing the reproductive aspect of our practice and are looking to fill this position with someone with energy and enthusiasm for reproductive work. We are prepared to invest in the necessary equipment and resources to support the right veterinarian in this role. We are open and supportive of the concept of non-traditional employment and look forward to creating a job tailored to this unique position.
