Are you looking for a team-based collaborative environment to work in? We are the place for you! We are looking for one to two full-time associate veterinarians for a busy mixed-animal practice in Orangeville, IL. (Part-time positions would also be considered.) We currently have 2 full-time doctors and are looking to add 1-2 more. We are seeking knowledgeable, motivated, team-players who are willing to see small and/or large animals. We encourage a team dynamic while allowing our doctors to practice their own style of medicine. Experienced vets and new graduates are welcome to apply. Night/weekend emergency hours are split equally between all doctors. Competitive salary based on experience with fully-stocked work vehicle provided, two weeks paid vacation, annual CE allowance, Illinois and Wisconsin licenses, and professional dues paid.
About the practice:
We have an established practice, with about 50 years of history. We are about 60/40 small and large animal, respectively. On the large animal side, we are about 90% dairy, 5% beef, 2% equine, and about 3% small ruminant/camelid. This is an agriculture and especially dairy-rich area. On the small animal side, we are about 75% canine, 24% feline, and 1% rabbit/ferret/rodent. There is a lot of room for growth and ability to specialize. We have a relatively new facility (2007) with an in-house lab, digital X-ray, high-speed dental unit, anesthetic monitor, haul-in chute facility, a portable chute for on-farm work, and portable ultrasounds for pregnancy diagnosis in cattle. We provide 24-hour emergency service for large and small animal patients but we also have the ability to send cases to nearby referral centers. We are within an hour of an emergency clinic and the University of Wisconsin Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Our emphasis is preventative care and production medicine. For small animals, we provide basic medicine and surgery, dental care, wellness panels and vaccinations. For large animal, we provide basic medicine and surgery, reproduction, protocols, calf care, basic processing, and records analysis. We have a well-established client-base with opportunity to grow in this area.

Our practice is located in beautiful Northwest Illinois. We are within an hour driving distance of Rockford, IL, Madison, WI, and Dubuque, IA.

We sit right next to one of the longest biking trails in the state.

There are multiple good school districts within the practice area and it is a great area for children.
