Nicollet Veterinary Clinic is located 90 minutes SW of the U of M St Paul campus near Mankato. We are seeking a small animal veterinarian to replace a retiring doctor. You would join four doctors eager to mentor you, whether new grad or experienced vet. While providing high quality veterinary care is our priority, at NVC we enjoy getting to know pet owners in an informal, personal setting. The ideal candidate for NVC is an energetic self-starter whose medicine and surgical skills and knowledge are complimented with the desire to improve the human/animal bond. We strive to offer any support we can to make every pet home a forever home. The entire NVC staff at is Fear Free certified and we anticipate new employees would want the same.
Doctors equally split surgery and appointment time. We encourage doctors to pursue their special interests, which has led to a growth in dental, repro, and behavior services, as well as shelter medicine. Owner compliance with dental prophys keeps the surgery schedule very full, and we do our own cystotomies, c-sections, foreign body surgeries, etc. Traveling specialists come in for dermatology and ultrasound referrals, and we plan to do the same for surgery referrals soon.
Our experienced CVT's are with us because they care. They are the " life blood" of our clinic, and will make the transition of any new veterinarian much easier if you are willing to let them "be your guide"! CVT's do many tech-only appts, freeing doctors of many basic needs visits. We offer puppy kindergarten and a Star Puppy class at our office. Monthly we volunteer 1 vet & 1 tech a day to do sterilization surgeries at our local shelter, which also provided interested students the opportunity to practice their spay/neuter skills.
NVC offers competitive salary and benefits include health & life insurance, paid association dues, employee discounts, CE compensation, PTO, etc. We are a small close group of coworkers that enjoy our jobs and each other!
MN veterinary license
Additional Salary Information: $70,000 minimum for full-time position, dependent on experience and qualifications
