AAHA Angel Vet Express is a high quality non-profit primary medical walk-in clinic that supports our M'Shoogy's Emergency Animal Rescue Shelter, the nation’s first no kill shelter.
We are located 35 miles north of Kansas City in Savannah, MO, rated the safest city in the state. We are a small town with many of the resources of a larger city. We are only 8 minutes from St Joseph, MO. Great schools, inexpensive housing, golfing, hiking, hunting, fishing, museum, symphony and Missouri Western State College. Also, St Joseph is home to world class Bryant’s Barbeque! Some call us the Mayo Clinic for Pets. Every dollar of profit is spent on the veterinary care for the animals treated and rescued. As a 501c3 organization, not only do our patients pay amazingly low prices for veterinary care but their dollars support injured or abandoned animals.
-We are seeking an energetic, positive, compassionate experienced veterinarian or strong new graduate who enjoys surgery, medicine, and providing high quality care to EVERY patient that crosses our threshold without concerns for cost.
-You can practice the high quality level of medicine you’ve always wanted to without concern for cost; each veterinarian has 3 technicians working with them.
-Your schedule is 45 hrs/week (9-6pm or 8-5pm) and no one ever stays late.
-We offer a great mentoring program where each new graduate works side by side with an experienced veterinarian in both medicine and surgery to provide great training.
-By working with us, you are eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program to repay your school tuition.
-Our campus is 22 acres with 13 buildings. One client said we looked like “Branson!”
-We were founded 32 years ago by an amazing couple Gary and Lisa Silverglat. Their huge love of animals and desire never to turn a pet away is the inspiration to create this amazing center of compassion and healing.
-Equipment: Ultrasound, digital x-ray, 6 isoflurane anesthesia monitors, two surgery suites each with two tables (heated V Tops), 6 wet tables, in-house lab with Abaxis and IDEXX and an extensive pharmacy.
-We are also a federal and state licensed wildlife rehabilitation station.
-one example of our dedication to progressive cost-effective medicine is that we have developed an amazing parvo protocol with save rates in excess of 90% costs less than $200. Blue Pearl sent in a team to evaluate us and now refers us 3-4 cases/week. We see 30 cases/week of parvo.

For the past 17 years, I’ve placed veterinarians and hospital managers with the top 20% of veterinary practices. As both an independent veterinarian recruiter and career/life coach, I bring additional expertise to you to support your job search. Recently, one of my veterinarian candidates said, "as an independent recruiter, you are like an impartial third party. I feel I can get the real story a...bout the practices from you!"
For you the practice owner, I am able to increase employee retention due to a unique program based on both my expertise in coaching and recruiting. It's called the Veterinary Retention Program. It helps you, the owner, maintain your high level of clinical excellence and customer service, gives you that competitive advantage in the market place and most importantly, keep staff. I find exceptional veterinarian candidates who are self-motivated, flexible, competent and passionate about veterinary medicine.
