ASSOCIATE VETERINARIAN HIRING (Revised/Updated: December, 2016)

We are looking for an energetic and outgoing associate for a busy, leading-edge, 4 Dr. mixed animal practice. There will be sufficient mentorship to make this position suitable for new grads; as well as challenging cases to also appeal to the seasoned Doctor.  This position involves a flexible combination of companion animal, bovine and equine medicine.  The successful applicant will be expected to learn quickly and work hard hence compensation is set at above average levels.  

We practice very high level medicine and surgery on small and large animals alike. To achieve this, we have a fully-equipped newly renovated 4,000 sq ft main/companion animal building along with separate, stand-alone equine and bovine facilities. We offer a full complement of diagnostics including in house lab, digital radiography, endoscopy, ultrasonography and more.  

The custom-built external bovine handling system allows cattle entry to the bovine facility, which is complete with a hydraulic tip table, a hydraulic squeeze chute, a bull testing chute and a rotating maternity chute with electric hoist.  This allows us to treat >95% of individual animal visits in clinic. For most herd-based appointments, we transport the hydraulic squeeze chute to the site, which has increased our customer satisfaction, team safety and overall efficiency exponentially.  

Equine services are primarily provided on-site, as we have a top-notch equine facility comprised of inside stabling, examination/treatment stocks and an operating theatre with padding induction/recovery stall, as well as outdoor paddocks.  Our clinic is equipped with different footings in order to conduct more complete lameness exams. 

The practice has a high pace of work which means we are looking for an applicant who is passionate about the job, wants to learn a broad range of knowledge and has a strong work ethic. The practice also offers final year rotations for the veterinary school in Calgary, Alberta; so we are used to teaching/mentoring. We have had new British grads in our employment previously and were quite satisfied.  

Compensation will include a competitive salary, negotiable based on experience and interview. A relocation allowance will also be offered to the successful applicant to help offset the costs associated with moving. Other perks such as license dues, paid holiday time and health care plans are also part of the compensation package. 

To apply please send your CV along with cover letter to Tracy Coonce via e-mail tracy.coonce@gmail.com
