Sunrise Equine is looking for a long term, full time associate veterinarian to add to our growing four doctor practice. This will bring the total number of veterinarians in the practice to five. We are a rural based equine ambulatory clinic. We do a lot of preventative care, dentistry, lameness and repro. One of our vets is trained in chiropractic care and one other in acupuncture. We offer our clients 24/7 emergency services which are shared by the doctors on a rotating schedule. Our work week is four days with the occasional 1/2 Saturday during the spring rush. There are 3 referral clinics within an hour of our practice center that we have good relationships with. We have done some minor/lower risk surgical procedures at our clinic that don’t require a surgical suite. We are always working to expand on the services that we provide to keep progressing and to better serve our clients.
We have in house CBC, chemistry, Coggins, fibrinogen, and fecal exam capabilities. We have a two digital x-ray systems. We have a Capps rotary dental float sets, repro ultrasound and SAA reader for each truck. There is a quality ultrasound machine for musculoskeletal and thoracic/abdominal imaging, both 3 meter and 1.5 meter scopes and a PulseVet shockwave unit. Each vet is provided a truck equipped with a fully stocked Bowie Vet unit and a Surface Pro with HVMS software for billing and record keeping. During the busy season each vet has an assistant with them daily. During the slower season we maintain fewer assistants and share them as needed.
In the past we offered minimal small animal services when the equine schedule allowed and there is a big demand for us to expand in that area but none of our current vets have an interest in that area. We do have a vet capable of small ruminant care and who will be working on developing that sector due to the local need.
Sunrise works to maintain a great culture within our practice. All team members are close and communicate well. We take pride in our customer service and client relations as well. We are very motivated to do our part in helping to make equine practice to become more sustainable.
We need a veterinarian that is focused on providing great care to horses as well as great service to our clients. This requires good interpersonal and communication skills as well as a strong equine background. Proficiency and confidence in equine med is essential but additional experience in small animal or small ruminant could be helpful. On call duties are required. You must have the ability to work and drive in all weather conditions. Minnesota can be -20 at times in the winter and 90 and humid for portions of the summer. We have a fairly large practice area so you must be willing to live somewhat central in order to have a reasonable response time to all clients when on emergency.
Start date is flexible but we hope to have someone ready to go by early March.
