I am Doug Thal DVM DABVP and our practice is Thal Equine LLC. I have been an equine practitioner for 28 years and this practice is 23 years old.
I am looking for a relief vet who can continue to provide quality care to horses and clients when I am away.
Our practice is a well-equipped, 2 doctor, progressive referral practice with a full hospital and a relatively small primary-care ambulatory practice. We have a great reputation in our region. (look up Thal Equine on Google and see our reviews). About 60% of our cases are referrals from vets from a region from southern Colorado to Southern NM. We do quite a lot of emergency work- colic cases, wounds and surgery.
Much of what we see are challenging and interesting cases- complex lameness and performance problems, podiatry, difficult sinus and dental cases, challenging medical cases, elective and colic surgery, and more.
We have a fully equipped ambulatory practice, limited to horse people who understand our approach and who want to be the very best equine caretakers they can be. The population of horses we see for primary care is a mix of English and Western performance, pleasure and backyard horses
Our emphasis is on excellent client service, complete diagnostic and treatment options, horsemanship, great client communication, and quality of life for our team members.
I created a smartphone app and encyclopedia of equine health for horse people, called Horse Side Vet Guide. It is highly rated and has been downloaded in over 90 countries Here is my explanation for vets: https://horsesidevetguide.com/for-vets The way I have built this practice is a reflection of the HSVG model. It has been all about client education and communication.
The practice itself is located on a scenic 50-acre equine facility. We have state of the art DR, digital ultrasound, 2 video endoscopes, and Equinosis Q Lameness locator among many other "toys", a full surgical facility, and a very well-equipped mobile unit. We have over 30 horses boarded here at any one time. We have a highly regarded dressage trainer who works here also and many of these are owned by her students.
I am looking for an experienced, confident clinician and quiet, competent horse handler who can replace me when I am away. I will favor someone with surgical and sports medicine ability.
Our long-time trained staff knows how everything works and is great support for anyone who would provide relief work.
The compensation package will be based on experience and fit to practice- a daily rate with travel and housing, +/- commission on earnings over a particular daily goal. We will provide housing on site or a stipend for housing nearby.
