"EMPATHY, KINDNESS, TRUST, FLEXIBILITY, and SUCCESS for our Patients, Customers, Co-Workers, Ourselves and God."
This is our 5 Star Culture of Caring at C.C. Veterinary Hospital and we are able to add another doctor to our team...are you ready to join? Our practice stands out in several ways. First, we have been serving our community for 126 years, with the first three generations in the same family! Talk about a history of trust and loyalty in Whitley County! Second, we are molding our pracice to be Fear Free to better care for our patients. We also offer training classes and behavioral consulting to address the emotional well being of animals as well as their physical needs. And finally, we foster an atmosphere of friendship/family among our staff as well as encourage growth and learning to create a pleasant work environment.
Here you can enjoy the benefits of a smaller town atmosphere while practicing excellent medicine. We perform all the typical veterinary procedures and have many areas for you to expand your knowledge and skills depending on your interests. We have a Companion Therapy Laser, Idexx Digital X-ray, ultrasound machine, in-house Abaxis lab, Midmark Dental Unit and Dental x-ray. We do a lot of dental work including composites so an interest in surgeries and dental work is a huge plus.The only one limiting your growth is you! Our practice owner loves to learn new ideas as well as mentor others. An interest in buying the practice some day would be a plus also!
Whitley County is a nice place to raise a family with the larger cities of Ft. Wayne and Warsaw both within 20 miles. We have a lot of lakes also for water entertainment!
The main job requirements (besides having a DVM or equivalent) are having a desire to learn and ambition to want to really help the animals and their owners. We will always respect your free time but our practice also needs someone who cares enough to stay late for the good client who has an emergency at the end of the day, work through a lunch hour when a day gets crazy, and cover a day for a fellow doctor to help out. We are looking for a team player, who sees veterinary medicine as a career, not just a 9-5 job. As the owner I still love what I do and want to work alongside someone with the same passion I have!
You also must be able to get along well with staff and treat them with respect...without them we could not do our jobs! And because of our long history in Whitley County, being community minded would be a definite plus. You also must be willing to learn and follow the principles of Fear Free and Force Free Handling and Training.
C.C. Veterinary Hospital is a small animal hospital with a rich history in Whitley County, IN (20 miles west of Ft. Wayne). The original "Doc" established a clinic here in 1890 and it remained in the same family for three generations. We still enjoy a great reputation of compassionate care, quality medicine, and community involvement. We currently have 2 doctors and 11 staff members. We like to ma...intain up-to-date medicine (digital and dental x-ray, therapy laser, ultrasound, abaxis in-house lab) while keeping a small town feel with our clients. We offer training and behavior consulting and emphasize low-stress veterinary visits. Our community has shifted from an agricultural base to more suburban so you can live in the country but be close to many cultural and social activities in the nearby cities!
