Our progressive, family-owned, 4 doctor small animal practice in beautiful Western Massachusetts is seeking a compassionate, practical, hard-working small animal veterinarian for a full-time position. New grads considered; excellent mentoring with a consulting surgeon, a boarded internist/ultrasonographer, and a boarded cardiologist rotating through our hospital, and a 24-hour emergency/referral hospital 1 mile away.
NO on-call and NO emergency coverage outside appointment hours
40 hours per week, with 5+ hours free time
3 weeks paid leave ( vacation or sick )
100% paid individual Tufts Health Plan insurance ( family plan available )
paid professional licenses
paid CE leave ( up to 5 days )

Our clinic is well-staffed and well-equipped: 11 technicians, 5 receptionists, high-end Fovea digital x-ray, new Sonoscape ultrasound, full Idexx lab equipment, Ellman Radio-surgery, Tono-Pen, full dental, monitors, Mac computers, ect. And did I mention we are family-owned?
We refer as needed, but we NEVER turn away the tough cases who can't afford referral. We also work extensively with local pet rescue and wildlife rehab groups, pro bono. Please note that we do not practice "alternative" medicine, only the real thing.
Salary is $80-$125k plus benefits, commensurate with experience and qualifications. If you are so inclined, you could pick up additional hours beyond your scheduled hours at relief rates ($65/hr). So instead of the all-too-common 60-hour work week for a 40-hour salary, you could earn $130-$160k. We are confident that you will find our hospital a good fit, so no contract is required.
P.S. Our website was hacked, so you won't currently find us online!
