The position could range from 10% up to 90% Large Animal and could include a significant amount of equine work depending on the personal interests of the person. The position is flexible and would evolve to meet the personís professional interests and skills.
We are an eight doctor practice (Dr. Scott Shuey KSU 95, Dr. Krista Davies ISU 97, Dr. Greg Weis ISU 02, Dr. Dan Dewitt ISU 04, Dr. Aimee Anderson ISU 06, Dr. Kate Nienfeldt, Ill 12, and Dr. Lindsay Kock, ISU 12). The opening is due to an associate leaving the practice to work in a State Veterinary Position. Our main office is in Corning, Iowa (pop 1500) with additional offices in Creston (pop 7500), Villisca (pop 1200) and Red Oak (pop 7000). At this time we see the person primarily working out of the Corning office. However, they are free to live in any of these towns. Including Veterinarians we have a full time and part time staff of 28 employees. Each doctor, on most days are assigned a Veterinary Assistant to work with. Our main office in Corning was built in 1997 (5500 sq. ft.). It has both large and small animal handling facilities, including a hospital pen for large animals. Plans are underway to construct a new facility at our Red Oak location.
Our small animal portion of the business currently accounts for about 35% of our gross revenue. Both large and small animal gross income has been growing. In 2013 our total gross revenue increased by over 8% compared to the previous year. In 2014 we have increased gross revenue by 11% over the previous year. The small animal worked ranges from routine vaccinations surgeries etc. to doing cruciate repairs on knees and pinning and plating of fractures. We have in house x-ray, CBC, blood chemistry, gas anesthesia and ultrasound. CT scanning is available through the local hospital. The small animal portion is quite flexible and would evolve to fit their professional interests.
The large animal portion of our practice consists mainly of cow-calf herds ranging in size from 20 to 900 head. Most of our better regular clients have between 100 and 350 head of cows and are excellent to work with. We have a growing feedlot portion of our practice with 15 yards with 1000 to 8000 head. We also provide services to the Creston and Red Oak Livestock Auctions. On call duties are shared.
We offer a competitive compensation package including medical re-imbursement, retirement plan, truck and box lease, cell phone and profit sharing.
