Veterinarian Wanted Full or Part-Time, Seasoned or New Graduate in Southern Illinois near St. Louis.

Just about every practice out there is hiring these days, and most will offer similar things while you do similar work with similar equipment. So, what are you missing if you work with anyone else? It's our TEAM! From the practice manager to the nurses, customer care team, and assistants, we have an amazing group of talented and caring people who would like nothing more than to meet YOU! Why? Because we're looking for a really special doctor to join our family!

Privately owned and AAHA certified, we appreciate autonomy, new ideas, and individual differences. We offer support and we value each person on our team. Of course, we practice great medicine, and we’re committed to wonderful customer service, education, and engagement – not the wedding kind, but the investing in you kind! Our nurses are highly skilled and genuinely caring, with many being certified. Our customer care team is professional, yet fun, and always on the lookout for cute patient photos. We have four very skilled and experienced full-time veterinarians and a very dedicated full-time practice manager. Fortunately, we are fully staffed!

Our 5,000-square-foot facility is undergoing a renovation and addition to ensure the space is adequate for our growing team. We will have six exam rooms, a feline-specific exam room, two consult rooms, two surgery suites, a large treatment area, a dedicated dental suite, a large team room, and so much more! We have in-house Idexx equipment, digital dental and full body x-ray, a therapeutic laser, an ultrasound machine, and cloud-based software. Our hours are modest (M/F 8-5, T-TH 8-7, Sat 8-12), and we don’t take after-hours calls or see emergencies. Appointments are 30 minutes long. When it comes to onboarding, we are committed to comfort! The last thing we want is for our new teammate to be overwhelmed.

The practice is located just 15 minutes east of St. Louis in Swansea, IL. It’s a suburban area not far from Scott Air Force Base, with Chicago being about 4 ½ hours to the north. Hiking and biking are readily available. With St. Louis so close, we have easy access to Cardinals and Blues games, Forest Park, the renowned St. Louis Zoo, the Muny, Fox Theater, and more.

Benefits include vacation, sick/PTO days, paid CE and paid time for CE, healthcare/vision and dental insurance, generous pet care benefits, professional dues paid, licensures paid, a uniform allowance, 401k, EAP benefits, and flexible scheduling with full or part-time hours. Our current doctors are on a prosal arrangement, which is open to discussion. A signing bonus will be offered, and if relocation is needed, those costs are also negotiable. So, if you are committed to excellent patient care, customer service, and teamwork, what are you waiting for?

Change is hard, but sometimes the grass is greener on the other side. (New grads will also be considered and mentorship will be a priority!) Please see our website at www.bestfriendsahpr.com and Facebook page at www.facebook.com/bestfriendsahpr.
