More than just a Mixed Animal Practice!
Are you tired of navigating the ins and out of veterinary job ads? We are too! Look, we are a keep-it-real, drive it forward, team of people who love where we live, who we work with and what we do. Let us break it down for you!
Who: We are a 3 doctor two location practice with an awesome support team in the heart of Kansas. We are looking to add a 4th doctor to our team!
Where: We eat, sleep, breathe, play and work in cow-calf country in rural Kansas. Literally more cows than people and we are close to a large, local college town for people-needs (AKA great restaurants, shopping, fun social events and general suburban awesome).
What: We are truly mixed. For example, our current number of species seen in one day record is eight. Overall, we see a lot of beef cattle and cats and dogs along with numerous small ruminants, exotics (hoof stock and pocket pets) and a smattering of horses, camelids and anything but primates. Primates are a no-go for us.
Why: The whole truth. This work involves less than ideal weather, shared on-call hours and some hard work. So why do we do this? We have the equipment (plus some cool toys) to get the work done and full facilities to work safely, but it's really about the PEOPLE. The team and our clients make our days fun, buffer the struggles and give our job purpose.
What we can promise:
- True teamwork and support. This team wants you, us and the whole practice to succeed.
- Hands-on Mentorship. We will coach, lead and help you become the doctor you want to be.
- Diverse caseload. Eight species is pretty good, but there are more for us to work on.
- Room to grow. We encourage new ideas and to develop interests and skills within the practice.
- Purpose. We want you to feel your work has purpose and you feel a part of your community.
