Midland Animal Clinic in Poway, California is seeking an Associate DVM to join our practice!
Midland Animal Clinic is looking to add another veterinarian to our well-established “family practice” team. Our clinic has been a part of the Poway community for over 40 years. Because we are located in “Old Poway”, the outside of our building looks old-fashioned, but the inside is a state-of-the-art medical facility. We provide high quality wellness, medical and surgical care, with an emphasis on client communication. We want our clients to be confident that our staff is always working with them to provide the best care possible for their pets on an individual basis. Our staff is friendly, compassionate, hard-working and well trained. We work together to maintain a positive work environment, and have many long-term employees as a result. Three of our veterinarians worked for us as technicians, and then returned to our clinic to work after vet school. Come join us!
