Tri-County Veterinary Services is a busy and growing mixed animal practice that services the local pet animal and farm animal community. While we consider ourselves a rural country practice, we are located only 40 minutes from Harrisburg and also draw many clients from that suburbia. Our equipment includes CBC & chemistry machines, in-house and portable ultrasound, digital X-ray, and microbiology lab. We have recently completed a building expansion project that doubled our practice space. We love our pleasant and competent staff and seek to go above and beyond routine medicine and surgery that may be common in similar rural practices. (See our practice profile.) Our 5 doctor practice sees a wide variety of cases and is a team-oriented group that is looking for a knowledgeable yet willing-to-learn associate. Special interests are encouraged. A strong work ethic and friendly attitude are essential.
We hope to employ someone desiring a long term residency in a small town atmosphere. This is a full-time position working with both pets and large animals(bovine/equine/small ruminants). Salary may range from $75 to $100 thousand, but is negotiable depending on experience and hours worked. We also offer health and professional liability insurance, CE, and membership to 2 professional organizations.
This associate would likely see appointments one evening per week and one Saturday per month, but receive one morning off per week. We also ask the associate to share call time equally with 3 other doctors. This could be a good opportunity for someone interested in ownership. You may see our website at www.tricountyvetpa.com.

About Tri-County Veterinary Services, P.C.
We are a 5-doctor mixed veterinary practice in central Pennsylvania that serves a rural community but is only 40 minutes from Harrisburg. The practice is about 64% small animal, 20% dairy, 12% equine, and a few small ruminants and whitetail deer. We do not treat birds or reptiles. Regarding the small animal work, beyond the usual routine appointments, surgeries, and dentals, we tend to do a fair amount of dog reproduction including C-sections and an occasional artificial insemination for local small time breeders. We offer a broad repertoire of surgeries including feline perineal urethrostomy, canine urethrostomy, entropian, grid keratotomy, ACL surgery, FHNE, and orthopedics using pins and wires. We manufacture culture plates and do 95% of our own microbiology lab work. Our equipment consists of portable and in house ultrasound, 2 Abaxis VS2 chemistry machines, an Abaxis HM5 hematology machine, electro-cautery, and a Tonopen. We have just completed a building addition to the practice so that we now have 3 exam rooms and digital X-ray. The dairy services include general herd health, reproduction and ultrasound, mastitis culturing and consulting, and common surgeries. ... The equine services include general equine health, reproductive services such as ultrasound and AI breeding, and emergency field services for colic and injuries. Doctors will generally work small animal appointments one evening per week and one Saturday per month.
