Ferry Farm Animal Clinic in Fredericksburg, VA is seeking an Associate Veterinarian to join our team.
We are a busy 4 doctor/2LVT small animal practice that has been a stable part of the Fredericksburg community since the early 1980’s. We are adding a 5th Veterinarian to our team due to growth. You will enjoy a lot of collaboration on our team. Our doctors and technicians have differing backgrounds and levels of experience and we are looking to both teach and learn from each other. We strive to provide high quality medicine and surgery along with exceptional personalized client service and compassionate patient care.

About Ferry Farm Animal Clinic
The veterinary profession isn’t like any other—it’s the only field predicated on the love of a patient who can’t tell you what’s hurting and can only look to you for help. It takes a special kind of person to do that job, or the jobs supporting that job. NVA doesn’t create those special people—we find them, cultivate them, and give them resources and opportunities to do what only they can do. Whether treating patients, managing a pet resort, or serving hospitals from NVA’s Support Center, NVA’s animal professionals are caring people, united by a love of animals. NVA is proud to honor that connection and is committed to serving our team members by providing them with the tools, support, and freedom to be the professionals they’ve always wanted to be.
