Modoc Veterinary Center, located in Alturas, California, is a 3-doctor clinic seeking an ambitious Associate Veterinarian interested in a vibrant and fast-paced mixed animal practice. We rotate weekday on-call and will have about one weekend on-call per month. On-call is usually low-key with calls occurring maybe 50% of the time. We are a true mixed practice that will see anything and everything! We provide services for small animal, bovine, small ruminant and equine clients. We currently have a dedicated team that services a large, rural community in the northeastern corner of California. We provide a variety of services that provide opportunity for growth in the veterinary profession while also providing quality mentorship to our younger veterinarians, making this practice a great place to learn and grow. With the nearest ER about 2.5 hours away, we see a multitude of different ailments in all species and our clients are extremely grateful to have us there! This means that if you want to get some hands-on experience with literally anything then this is the place to be! True James Herriot novel over here. New grad? No worries! We love to mentor and help each other out. Tell us what you want to learn and we will make it happen!
