Jackson Creek Veterinary Clinic is seeking a full- or part-time associate to join our 7-DVM, small animal general practice in Northern California. In our Sierra foothills location, we have served our loyal clientele since 1990 and take pride in our many long-lasting relationships in the community, including many local animal rescues. We provide a wide range of services including soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, digital and dental radiography, reproductive services, ultrasound, in-house labs, and acupuncture. We are located an hour away from the many referral facilities in the Sacramento area, and we work with nearby specialists when needed, but we also have more exposure to complex medical or surgical cases when clients prefer to keep their patients in house. Whether you’re an experienced Vet or a new graduate, Jackson Creek is the perfect place to hone your craft as a well-rounded clinician. Our highly-skilled team of RVTs and assistants supports our associates in all facets of patient care, allowing you to focus on practicing medicine.
Our ideal candidate is friendly, compassionate, a good communicator, and motivated to care for pets and people. Shelter medicine, HQHVSN or exotic/wildlife experience are a plus, but the freedom to pursue your niche in veterinary medicine is encouraged. New graduates are welcome to apply. Must be licensed to practice in California.
The Sierra foothills are a beautiful part of our state, with something for everyone. We are located 45 minutes from Folsom, an hour from Sacramento, less than 2 hours from Lake Tahoe, and 2 hours to the Bay area. Jackson is a former gold mining town, now growing and straddling the suburban/rural interface. Our local Amador county wine country is extensive, award-winning, and delicious! Our corner of the foothills is a great place for anyone wanting to settle down in a quiet country setting, but close enough to the city that you won’t miss a beat.

About Jackson Creek Veterinary Clinic
Blue River PetCare's mission is to provide a long-term home for local practices that selling owners have worked so hard to build. We are dedicated to retaining the culture of each of our hospitals in addition to the local practice of medicine. We do this by ensuring each hospital has complete medical autonomy with their choice of protocols, therapies, inventory items, vendors and even management software. We also focus on our employees’ health and well-being as much as we do the pets we treat. We would love to hear from you!
