Country Valley Veterinary Clinic is currently a 3 doctor practice located in the country west of the Capital District. We are 1 mile from the highway, making us an easy drive from Albany, New York.

We are well equipped with CR Digital X-Ray, Dental Digital X-Ray, Color Ultrasound, Tonopen, Fluid Pumps, IH Abaxis equipment, Cardell Monitors, Bair Huggers, etc. We are appropriately staffed with a 5 to 1 staff to DVM ratio. We utilize licensed technicians to the fullest extent of the law, allowing veterinarians to be free to do their jobs properly. We offer 30 minute appointments and focus on quality of care as well as client relationships. Our surgical patients enjoy close monitoring and individual attention with a high regard for comfort and safety.
At Country Valley Veterinary Clinic, we believe that each employee is a valued member of our team and our culture. We offer flexible scheduling based on the needs of our employees and our clients. Our employees have been with us for many years in most cases, and we pride ourselves on providing a warm and supportive environment. At this time, we would consider a full or part time candidate, and there is flexibility in the hours and days available. We are currently well staffed with 5 licensed veterinary technicians, 3 part time, experienced clinicians, and multiple assistants and receptionists. We are in the process of hiring 2 additional support staff to help us keep up with our growing clientele. Our veterinarians are provided with a generous base salary, all routine dues and fees paid, and an above average pro-sal package. Furthermore, we value quality of life, and offer ample time off as well as a focus on reasonable hours and work flow. We do not see after hour emergencies at this time, and would not expect or ask our newest associate to do so. That said, if a veterinarian interested in expanding the business expressed interest in the emergency side of things, we are perfectly situated to expand into this! We would be interested in a veterinarian that wanted to join us for as few as two or as many as five days a week. Salary would vary with desired time worked.
Overall, we truly pride ourselves on being reasonable people and getting on well as a team. This is a great group of people who simply want to take care of area pets as well as we possibly can, and who want to have fun while we do it. We also value our families and our personal pets, and we make sure to have time for them in our lives. It is possible to have a healthy work life balance, and at Country Valley Veterinary Clinic, we have figured out how to have both an excellent career and a good home life.
