Sound Equine Veterinary Hospital, located in the beautiful Puget Sound region of Washington State, has an opening for a full-time Associate Veterinarian. Sound Equine is an expanding practice moving towards becoming a full-service referral hospital. We have a loyal, established clientele who care about their horses, and see a diverse caseload, including sport horses, rodeo, pleasure, and beloved pets. We offer both in-clinic and ambulatory services, with a shared responsibility for inpatient care, and are looking for a candidate who is committed to providing the best possible care for hospitalized and ambulatory patients, from an old donkey to a high end sport horse. Areas of particular need in the practice (include but are not limited to) sport horse medicine/acupuncture/chiropractic, reproduction, or an interest in farm animal medicine. We support each veterinarian’s interests, and are happy to guide scheduling toward your strengths and interests. Capacity to run general anesthesia is a plus, but not a requirement as is experience managing inpatient care.
As a member of the Sound Equine team, you will enjoy:
- Flexible full or part-time scheduling with fringe benefits available for PT employees
- An immediately available caseload
- A well-equipped hospital with inside and outside stalls, an arena and a round pen
- Extensive diagnostic capabilities including a full on-site lab, digital radiography, and ultrasonography, 3m/1.5m endoscope
- Therapies including shockwave and regenerative medicine
- A growing surgical practice with an on-site surgery suite and recovery stall
- A fully equipped truck for farm calls.
- A dedicated assistant to facilitate your efficiency
- Weekly doctor's meetings to maintain a cohesive and collaborative culture
- Emergency coverage duties typically include a rotation of every 5th weekend, one weekday, and occasional backup call - unless more is desired.
