Multi-doctor equine practice in New York is seeking board eligible or board certified theriogenologist
We are a well-established, privately owned equine hospital. We are located in beautiful rural horse country but are less than 80 miles from exciting midtown Manhattan. We are seeking a motivated applicant, with excellent customer service mentality and good communication skills for an immediate job position. We seek an individual with a forward-thinking and positive attitude that can function well as a part of our team. Our facility offers complete support staff, surgical suite, 13-stall barn with climate-controlled evaluation areas and state of the art equipment including multiple digital radiography units, nuclear scintigraphy, dynamic endoscopy, ultrasonography, video endoscopy, laser therapy, in house laboratory equipment and up-to-date sports medicine and regenerative therapies. We are a progressive practice with opportunities for future growth for the right candidate. Staff includes two board certified equine surgeons and 3 other experienced ambulatory veterinarians. We have an established internship program with two interns.
Although there is a complete, well -appointed and staffed hospital, the practice is primarily an ambulatory practice. Surgeries are almost all elective. Reproductive work is a prominent part of the practice as we are the veterinarians for several large breeding farms in the area. We currently perform semen freezing, embryo transfer flushes, hysteroscopy, oviductal hydrotubation, oocyte aspiration, as well as more routine work with stallion collection, artificial insemination and mare and stallion reproductive examinations. We are looking for someone to take over this case load and hopefully continue to expand our reproductive services. As the New York breeding season is during the first half of the year, we would consider a candidate for the position who only performs reproductive work but also one interested in other aspects of private practice.
Forty percent of our caseload is Standardbreds, both racehorses in training and breeding stock. Additionally, we see a wide variety of sport horses including hunter/jumper, dressage, and Western performance horses. Cases regularly involve all age groups, from foals to geriatrics. Clients are varied and include pet horse farms as well as large show horse barns, western performance barns, commercial breeding farms, local resorts and racetrack work. Pine Bush Equine Services serves as the primary veterinarians for the USDA New York Animal Import Center (one of only three import centers in the United States).
Pine Bush Equine Services schedules appointments Monday-Friday. We provide 24-hour emergency coverage for our clients however all night-time emergency surgery is referred to a local surgical center. Primary on call duty for our full-time practitioners is generally limited to the months when we are training our interns. Once the interns are competent in their role, our veterinarians function as back up for the interns after this time.
We offer a starting salary commensurate with experience with incentives based on production. Benefit packages include, medical, vision and dental, paid vacation, continuing education expenses, retirement benefits through an IRA with a contribution matching program, payment of dues for membership in the AVMA and AAEP, Professional Liability Insurance through the AVMA, licensing fees, and a pet care discount.
New York Veterinary License is required. Please send CV or resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
