At our clinic…
We care deeply about a healthy workplace culture with an emphasis on wellbeing and we will work hard to support and sustain you. We believe that this ‘put our oxygen masks on first’ team approach will help us be our best selves for our other team members and to be our best professional selves for our patients and clients.
We practice high quality medicine in a collaborative environment. We encourage bouncing ideas off each other, sharing our strengths and supporting each other through clinical decisions or learning a procedure together.
We aim to keep fostering a love of veterinary medicine–or re-spark your love for it if it's begun to dwindle or even if it has faded away. We love taking moments to get nerdy about our profession, pass around abscess videos, and oogle over toe beans. Oh, and if you enjoy some good (and bad) puns-- ur-ine luck!
About our clinic…
We are currently a two doctor canine/feline clinic with a strong focus on preventative care and high quality medicine.
We care about work life balance. Our associate doctors can work 3 day work weeks and be full time (we do cover for each other's vacations).
We enjoy having several 24 hour emergency facilities and specialty centers nearby so we do not do on-call and can easily refer. We also have a boarded radiologist and cardiologist that visit in clinic on a routine basis.
While we are not Fear Free Certified, we do apply Fear Free techniques and try to make a Fear Free environment for our patients.
We have an amazing support staff with a high staff to doctor ratio that allows our veterinarians to concentrate on medicine & surgery.
Our hospital has been AAHA accredited for over 20 years.
We have a mix of long term established clientele and new. We value the relationships we build with our patients and clients.
We have digital radiography, high end ultrasound, in house blood machines, ultrasonic dental scaler, digital dental radiography, cold therapy laser, surgical theater, separate cat and dog wards, and more.
