VCA MacArthur Animal Hospital is seeking a third Associate Veterinarian to join our AAHA-Accredited two-doctor practice in Washington, D.C.!
Our practice is located in the charming Palisades neighborhood close to Georgetown. We focus on wellness, early disease detection, preventive care and client education. We have a great clientele - most of our clients live in the neighborhood and have been coming to our hospital for many years! Our clients are generally quite amenable to our recommendations and high quality of pet care. The majority of our surgeries are dental procedures, spays, neuters and mass removals. We are a very team oriented practice with a passion for client service. No on-call obligations. If needed, there are multiple emergency and specialty hospitals in the area available for referral.
The staff at VCA MacArthur enjoys opportunities to serve the local community and volunteer for various projects or events. The hospital partners regularly with Bread For the City, a nonprofit agency in DC that serves low income residents, in offering a pet food pantry that provides high quality pet food to those in need. We have participated in the nationwide "Clear the Shelters" campaign and have a relationship with local shelters and rescues to provide discount services to newly adopted pets. We also participate with "Pets of the Homeless" and other VCA Charities programs and events. For more information visit: http://vcamacarthur.com
