We are an eleven doctor, exclusive small animal practice located in Battle Creek, Michigan. Our practice has been in business since 1975; our veterinarians have over 100 years of combined experience in private practice. We presently have an opening for an associate veterinarian. We offer specialized care to our patients in many areas including ultrasound (abdominal and cardiac), advanced soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, and oncology (including chemotherapy). In the spirit of continuing to strengthen our team, we are just as enthusiastic about mentoring a new graduate as we are supporting a seasoned veterinarian.
Our staff includes 13 highly skilled licensed veterinary technicians. Our staff to doctor ratio is approximately 5:1, giving our doctors the support they need to practice the highest quality medicine. Our facility is fully equipped with state of the art clinical pathology instrumentation, a spacious surgical suite, ultrasound, surgical and therapy lasers, digital x-ray equipment (including digital dental x-ray), oxygen cages, Doppler blood pressure, tonometer and more. Overnight emergencies are referred to an emergency facility located in nearby Kalamazoo.
The successful candidate will need to show enthusiasm, strong verbal and written communication skills and work well within a team environment. We offer an excellent benefit package - paid vacation and holidays, health insurance, AFLAC, paid license, dues, uniforms, continuing education and a pension/profit-sharing/401(k) plan. We are a team-oriented group who will work to maximize your skills for the advantage of both our patients and clients.
The Battle Creek/Kalamazoo area has much to offer if you are an outdoor-minded person. Hiking, biking, hunting, fishing and camping; recreational areas and state parks are within an hour's drive. Numerous lakes and rivers surround us and beautiful Lake Michigan beaches are only sixty minutes away. Cultural events are also close by - Kalamazoo is home to Western Michigan University and Miller Auditorium. We are only one hour from Lansing and Michigan State University's Wharton Center and Breslin Center. If you are looking for big city entertainment, Detroit is only two hours away and Chicago just three hours.
