Dogs, cats, horses, small ruminants, cows, backyard poultry: we provide for most and care for all. Good clientele, great staff and a supportive team of doctors would like to talk with you. We refer all after-hours small animal emergencies to numerous emergency care options nearby. We have multiple, excellent referral facilities in our area. Our goal is to provide top quality care at reasonable financial costs and facilitate time for our staff to enjoy the rewards of our great profession. A small animal medicine internist and surgeon, an individual who relates to equine clientele, a person interested in developing a geriatric medicine program, or any veterinarian who enjoys or would like to enjoy being a mixed animal practitioner will want to explore the opportunities we present. We are located in beautiful Frederick County Maryland, in close proximity to two major metropolitan areas but within the shadow of the Catoctin Mountains. We cherish mixed practice, mixed values, mixed cultures and those who want to make this mixed up world better.

Our Associate Veterinarian role:
New graduates or experienced doctors are welcome to apply!
We offer a mentorship program to new grads and growth opportunities for all of our doctors.
A special interest in surgery and dentistry is a plus!
For new graduates, we extend appointment times and limit surgeries on the schedule while they train with an experienced doctor on our staff.
This position can be SA only, LA only, or a mixture of both.
We have a multitude of referral options for specialists in surgery, internal medicine, neurology, ophthalmology, dermatology and behavior. We appreciate there are limits to the level of care we can provide. We take comfort and confidence in our ability to refer our patients to convenient board-certified specialists to attain the level of expert care they desire.
On average, we see 3-5 large animal appointments, 16-20 small animal appointments, and 5-6 surgeries per day providing variety to our doctor's caseloads.
Each of our doctors has one dedicated surgery day per week (where they do not see appointments/schedule other procedures based on their comfort level).
