Please consider becoming the fourth veterinarian at Essex Animal Hospital, a small animal and exotic hospital in Bloomfield, New Jersey. Our 90 years of combined veterinary experience gives us the knowledge, experience, and ability to work up our cases to the fullest. Our clientele allows us to practice a very high level of care, and a diagnosis is sought in all cases. Although the vast majority of medical and surgical cases are kept in house, specialists in every discipline are close by and phone consults and referrals are made whenever patient care dictates it. Our local continuing education opportunities are extensive. For new and recently graduated colleagues, we offer a well-defined mentorship program. You will never be thrown into the fire, although you will always be encouraged to step outside your veterinary comfort zone.
Our Culture Though we are busy with a very varied case load, our hospital is run in a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. We schedule 30 minute appointments which allows us time to get to know our clients on a more personal basis and educate them on the care needed for their pet. Our staff, half of whom have been with us for over 15 years, are skilled, competent and dependable. They are sincerely warm and comforting people, both to the pets and our clients.
We place a strong value on maintaining a quality work-life balance. There are no after-hours emergencies. When we’re closed, we’re closed, and we refer to local emergency facilities. Although we are strongly committed to our patients and our profession, we value our time outside of the workplace. We are less than 30 minutes from several small theaters and performing arts centers. We are a 20 minute train ride to New York City, and are 60-90 minutes from New Jersey beaches and ski resorts in NJ, NY, and PA. There is convenient direct train service to Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and Boston.
