Our hospital is proud to be part of the American Veterinary Group (AVG) of hospitals. AVG owns and operates 90+ veterinary practices throughout the Southern United States. As a hands-on operator of hospitals, we know that people make the difference between a good practice and a great practice. We pride ourselves on encouraging our practices to make medical decisions at the local practice level. As such, we do not provide any company-wide medical protocols and rely on the expertise of our teams to make decisions that best serve their clients and teams. All of our practices are unique - from our small animal companion general practices, to our UrgentVet locations, and our mixed animal and equine practices. We would love to discuss our current openings with you further to see if you might be a good fit for our team!
