Wilkes County Veterinary Services is looking to add TWO full time mixed animal veterinarians to our busy 4 doctor practice. Located in Washington, GA, a rural historic town approximately 45 minutes from Athens and Augusta. We have a varied caseload: roughly 60% small animal (companion animals and few exotics) and 25% bovine and 15% equine. Large animal consists of beef cows, dairy cows, small ruminants and occasionally pigs. The applicants should be comfortable with working on all species, but it can we worked out that the applicant can focus mostly on their desired species of interest as much as possible.
We provide numerous services and are always up for a challenge. On the small animal side, we provide routine wellness, sick visits, surgery ranging from spay/neuters to TPLOs and bone plates, dentals, and hospitalization of animals. The bovine side, we provide herd health checks, pregnancy evaluations, semen quality assessments, lameness, sale barn work and more. Our equine practice consists of routine vaccinations, dentals, lameness, castrations, and more.
We operate out of a 5 year old newly built, state of the art facility. Numerous diagnostic tools are utilized in the clinic: Tabletop CBC, Chemistry, T4, Cortisol, Bile Acids, Digital Radiographs, Ultrasound, Dental Machine, EKG, Pulse Ox, Cold Laser, Blood Pressure Monitor, and more. Large animal equipment/portable tools: Ultrasound with a rectal probe and another with a linear probe for tendons, two PowerFloats, portable Digital radiographs, and a fully stocked vet truck for each veterinarian. The clinic has 4 exam rooms, numerous hospital cages, Isolation area, and a full boarding kennel. The clinic employs 2 receptionists, a business manager, groomer, and 2-1 vet assistant to doctor ratio. We also work closely with numerous high school, tech schools, and with UGA to provide externships to help teach students.
Each veterinarian is provided with their own expense-paid vet truck to drive for work and all the equipment to stock it. On call is part of our job and community. It is split between the doctors to average one weekend a month and one day a week (The more veterinarians we hire, the less on call there will be). The clinic is open Monday to Friday and half days on Saturdays. Saturdays are worked on an every other week schedule, but with more doctors, this will be spaced out further. A 3 day weekend is built in to the schedule every month for each doctor. We hope to add a day off during the week as well for full time veterinarians as we continue to add staff to the clinic. A veterinary assistant is on call with each doctor to provide assistance on after hour calls as needed.
Compensation: The clinic provides: health insurance, disability insurance, dental insurance, life insurance, continuing education costs, organization dues, vacation/sick days, retirement with a match, and a separate phone for on call. Salary is competitive and negotiable based on experience. New grads welcomed and encouraged to apply! We take pride in mentoring students and new graduates to become the best veterinarians they can be. The clinic is also represented in the Georgia Veterinary Loan Repayment Program that helps assist large animal veterinarians in loan repayment. The clinic has had a veterinarian accepted 4 times in the last 6 years. Please send resumes and reach out with any questions.
