Associate Veterinarian-$30,000 signing bonus Congratulations on being nearly finished with veterinary school. You have obviously done well and are now in the home stretch. I would be very interested in talking to you about the position we have open for an associate veterinarian. Kindness Animal Hospital in Grand Forks, ND is searching for a motivated and caring associate veterinarian to join our team of dedicated and passionate veterinary professionals. Our practice is small animal exclusive and is progressive and very well equipped. We focus on individual animal care and preventative medicine. We also provide advanced medical, dental, and surgical care including orthopedics and receive referrals from many of our surrounding practices. Kindness Animal Hospital was established in 1985 and we moved into a new facility in May of 2011. The new hospital has 6 spacious exam rooms, a large centralized treatment/ICU area, and separate canine and feline hospitalization wards. Our surgery suite has 2 heated electric tables, new VetLand EX3000 anesthesia machines, and LED lighting from Medical Illumination. The dental suite has 2 wet tables with Progeny digital dental x-ray and 2 dental machines. The laboratory includes the complete Idexx Laboratory suite including Catalyst blood chemistry, ProCyte CBC, VetLyte, UA analyzer, SNAPShot, and SNAPPro. Our imaging suite has Idexx Digital DR with a new InnoVet Select x-ray machine and we recently purchased a new Aloka ProSound A6 ultrasound machine. We are fully computerized with Cornerstone and have computers in each exam room. Salary will be very competitive depending on experience and production. Benefits include medical insurance, Simple Retirement Plan, reimbursement for AVMA and NDVMA dues, Professional Liability Insurance, CE Stipend, and paid time off. We are also offering a signing bonus of up to $30,000 for a 3 year contract. Our hospital currently shares emergency call with 3 other small animal practices in town and so our hospital is on emergency call only 1/4 of the time. Our 1/4 share of the emergency call is split evenly among the associates we have on staff so the emergency call is never more than 1 out of 8 weekends and weeknights. We typically have 3 associate veterinarians so the emergency duty is usually 1 out of 12 weekends/nights. There is also additional compensation for the emergencies you see. If you are interested in discussing the possibility of joining our team or would like to set up an interview, please send me your resume’ by email at dro@kahgf.com, mail at the address below, or call me at the hospital (701-772-7289)or on my cell phone (701-740-5510).
