The Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital Large Animal Referral Hospital is recruiting for an energetic and motivated full-time Equine Surgeon to join our large animal hospital and field service team. Combined, our referral hospital and field service team have two boarded certified large animal surgeons, two LA ambulatory practitioners, two LA interns. Pilchuck is a large multi-species facility which also houses a Small Animal General Practice, 24-hour small animal emergency, Integrative Medicine, and a reference quality in-house laboratory.
Our practice is in beautiful Western Washington. We have the best of both worlds – proximity to downtown Seattle culture with a more rural and quieter scene surrounding us. The equine/large animal portion of our 23-acre facility houses modalities such as digital X-Ray, endoscopy, ultrasound, MRI, and provides 24-hour nursing care, and an in-house reference quality lab. Our well-equipped practice performs a broad range of general, neurological, orthopedic, and arthroscopic/laparoscopic surgeries. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package while striving to maintain a work/life balance for our team.
JOB DESCRIPTION: Provide veterinary care to horses and various other large animals with an emphasis on sports medicine in both a hospital and ambulatory setting. Conduct a variety of technical medical and surgical duties relevant to inpatient and outpatient cases in the equine/large animal hospital, while working in accordance with hospital policies and procedures. Participate in the emergency on-call rotation for the large animal referral hospital.
EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS: Board certified in large animal surgery with prior experience as an Associate Equine Veterinary Surgeon with an emphasis on soft tissue surgery or related, which includes experience in an equine/mixed animal practice and horse and large animal handling. Washington State Veterinary License required.
