We are a growing two doctor equine ambulatory practice in the Ottawa area looking to add a third member to our team. We have worked to launch a practice built around the goals of providing compassionate, comprehensive care to our clients with a focus on customer service and education. We try to live up to these goals but as with all lofty goals we fall flat on our faces at times. We try to laugh and have fun whenever possible and commiserate together when the day is a bit rough. We are looking for a third vet who is committed to working with clients so they can understand and be a part of their horse’s care. This often means answering a lot of questions but we try to bill for that and not devalue that side of the care process! We want you to share our values so that the work feels easier and more enjoyable.
Our practice covers routine care, dental work with hand and power equipment, sports medicine, reproductive services, etc etc. We have multiple power dental units, digital radiography and digital ultrasound, upper airway endoscopy, Prostride, etc, etc, etc.
We currently work a typical M-F work week. After hours care is handled by the vet on call. This is shared evenly amongst the vets. Daytime emergencies are shared depending on vet availability and geography. If you want a more flexible schedule, a 4-day week, etc we can work with you on those things.
Our ideal associate will be interested in the same goals we are: helping horses, teaching clients, finding the odd moment to partake in a hobby or two! We would love someone with at least 1 year of experience either through an internship or in the field but can work with the right person who is straight out of school as well. We are happy to mentor you but also expect you to tell us when you need help. Our phones are always on!
Please send us your info if you are interested in working with us! We would ideally be looking for a candidate capable of starting in the spring of 2021. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with experience. Contact Megan Fine or Melissa Rocheleau at email@example.com
