Fox Valley Equine Practice is a 30-year old equine ambulatory practice, owned by Dr. David Heinze. Dr. Heinze is a highly-respected vet in the area who loves to practice medicine and always makes it a priority to mentor associates. Fox Valley Equine’s strives to offer “The Best Medicine in the Field”. Our shared love of horses is what unites and drives our team. Everyone has each other’s back. The office culture is light. We love to laugh, and welcome a team-player with a good sense of humor.
The practice is located in La Fox, IL, approximately 40 miles west of Chicago. The office is located between town and country. You can choose a country or urban lifestyle and still get to work in 20 minutes or less. The area boasts several great school systems, numerous dining options, shopping and activities.
Let’s face it, working on horses is physically and mentally demanding. The days can be long, the conditions are not always ideal, and occasionally you come across a difficult patient. That’s why we are looking to add another vet to our practice. We value work-life balance and understand that “burn-out” is a serious concern among veterinarians. We offer 4-day weeks during non-peak seasons, shared emergency coverage and paid vacations.
Our loyal clientele ranges from back-yard horses to elite equine athletes. We offer routine care, dentistry, sports medicine, field surgery, and cutting-edge medicine. Services provided include Pulpcyte stem cell therapy, IRAP, PRP, ProStride, chiropractic, and much more. A technician accompanies veterinarians on appointments. Out techs drive the vans, allowing vets time to write records, make calls, or wind-down between appointments.
Fox Valley Equine is equipped with Sound Next digital radiography, ultrasound, 12-meter video gastroscope, endoscopy, Terafloat powerfloats, Shockwave, Pegasus Therapy Laser, Lameness Locator, Tonovet ophthalmic scope, SAA test kits, onsite CBC/Chem machines.
Compensation includes AVMA and AAEP dues, liability insurance, paid vacation, and CE compensation. A fully-equipped practice vehicle is provided as well as practice laptop and phone.
