The Amherst Animal Hospital, located in the historic town of Amherst, NH, is seeking an associate veterinarian to join our 4 doctor small animal practice. Our veterinary hospital has been successful for over 40 years by providing exceptional care for our patients and fostering strong relationships with our clients based on trust and respect. Our team's best qualities are honesty, responsibility and compassion. We have always been independently owned and operated so our veterinarians are able to practice quality medicine in a cooperative and supportive environment.
Our facility contains five examination rooms, two complete surgical suites, ten wards for hospitalization and isolation of patients, and an apartment above for our treatment technician. Our instrumentation includes an Eklin DR digital radiography system, Seimens ultrasound, and a comprehensive in-house chemistry laboratory with Heska and Idexx analyzers. The majority of urine and cytology samples are evaluated in-house. Our hospital regularly evaluates and integrates new therapeutics, diagnostics and technology to enhance the level of patient care and client service.
Staff veterinarians perform most surgeries and we have many specialty hospitals in our region for complex medical cases. Our hospital utilizes an answering service when we are closed. Afterhours, clients have the opportunity to speak with a veterinarian and are referred to a local emergency clinic if immediate care is needed. Our staff doctors share this on-call duty and weekend responsibilities.
This opportunity is for a full-time veterinarian who possesses exemplary medical and surgical skills, typically acquired from an internship or through advanced private practice. We work as a team – our doctors support one another; we share cases regularly and consult with each other throughout each workday. Mentoring is part of our practice and we provide internships for veterinary students and veterinary technicians from local programs.
The successful candidate will enjoy the challenges of a busy practice, participate actively in our twice-daily hospital rounds and work cooperatively with all staff members to provide the high level of care that is our hospital’s standard. A veterinarian with a positive outlook, a team player that fits with our hospital’s ethical standards, and a methodical, compassionate communicator will be a wonderful addition to our practice.
