Amazing DVM Wanted for Excellent Opportunity in StL Area – Be Your Best with the Best

Looking for a place to grow that fosters a career, not just a job? Want an excellent support staff that feels like family and clients that feel more like friends? How about a clinic with enough space?! (What! Who knew that was even a real thing?)

Best Friends Animal Hospital in Swansea, IL, is looking for one (or two) amazing veterinarians to join our growing practice that focuses on excellent patient care and team care. We take the time to get to know our clients with half-hour appointments, even for rechecks. We can’t always prevent chaos, but we do try, so we limit our appointments and always block some off for those same-day, just can’t wait issues. We let nurses be nurses (and we have quite a few), so doctors can do doctor things.

We have all the typical stuff – digital x-rays, laser, Idexx lab equipment, cloud-based software that allows texting and emails – and some of the untypical stuff, including no emergencies and no after-hours calls. There’s nothing worse than not being able to relax and enjoy your favorite beverage when you finish your day! Full-time doctors always enjoy a day off during the week. We are open until noon on Saturday, but those are rotated. We are closed on Sundays. We are privately owned, so all decisions are made in-house with the best interests of patients, clients, and YOU in mind. Heck, we even seek input from our team.

Do you enjoy surgery or outpatient care? Do you have any special interests you’d like to pursue? Let’s work together to create a schedule that best suits you, and we will offer the support and resources. Do you like exotics? Two of our doctors see those and would like nothing more than to collaborate, teach, etc., but an interest in that isn’t necessary. All that is, is a good attitude and the ability to practice good medicine. We’re AAHA certified, and many of us are Fear Free certified. And we’re so excited to be adding square footage! (We weren’t kidding about that space comment!). With eight exam rooms, including a feline-only, two consult rooms, two surgery suites, two dental tubs in a dedicated area, a large team room and so much more, we’ll be practicing in paradise. (That’s an overstatement, obviously! But it’s going to be amazing!)

A generous guaranteed base salary commensurate with experience and the opportunity to earn more will be offered, along with a generous CE allowance and paid time off, paid holidays, vacation, insurance (health/dental/vision), pet care benefits, uniform allowance, dues and memberships paid, matching 401k, EAP, and more. If you're relocating, a compensation package will be offered.

So if you’re interested in finding out a bit more, whether you’re new to practice, or looking for a better fit, please get in touch! The grass can be greener on the other side! (Don't worry - we won't tell.)
Requirements:
  • DVM Degree
  • Good attitude with the desire to practice great medicine.
