Life is short. Don’t waste it working in a toxic clinic where you aren’t appreciated! Come join us in the Splash Zone! Dutton Veterinary Services is located in rural central New York. I have a position for a vet working with mixed animals or small animals exclusively if desired. If interested in mixed animal, on-call duty for large animal is required but you will have backup whenever needed. If small animal exclusive, no emergency on-call duty required.
Dutton Veterinary Services is currently a solo practice that is rapidly expanding and looking for another veterinarian to join our team! Due to several veterinarians in the area retiring, our practice is continuing to grow. I am looking for a veterinarian interested in ownership potential in a few years. New graduates are welcome and encouraged to apply! I utilized veterinary technicians to their full potential, both on the road and in the clinic.
Salary starts at $85,000 to $100,000 depending on whether you wish to pursue mixed or small animal exclusive practice. Emergency fees are paid directly to the veterinarian (expect $4,000 or more per year if mixed vet). Individual health insurance is paid (approximately $7500 value), as is liability insurance, licensing fees , membership dues, and uniform allowance. Continuing education allowance of $2000 per year provided. Ten days paid time off and five sick days.
The practice patient breakdown is approximately 20% dairy, 15 % beef, 40 % equine, 20% small animal and 5% small ruminant and porcine. But as mentioned, there is plenty of room to grow in any area. I practice high quality, compassionate medicine. I do not tolerate abuse from clients or toxic behaviors from employees. We laugh every day at work and leave work at work. If you are looking for a fun, encouraging and satisfying work environment look no further. I have previously worked as a professor and love teaching and mentoring. Employees enjoy time together outside of work too. Previous events have included board game nights and group riding clinics. We have fun, however, impromptu dance lessons are NOT ALLOWED. All in-clinic dance lessons must be announced in advance so that everyone can participate.
Mixed animal veterinarians will be provided with a vehicle, bowie unit and ultrasound for use on calls. Equipment to outfit the vehicle is also provided (speculum, pump, NG tubes, fetatome, calf jack etc). The practice also has digital portable radiography, a power float, Pegasus therapy laser, Bemer blanket, and Abaxis blood machines.
Delaware county NY is located in the beautiful Catskill mountains and the area abounds with outdoor activities. Several urban areas (including NYC w/in 3 hours) within short drives provide your need for ethnic foods and other activities. But be prepared to live out in the peace and quiet of the countryside.
