Green Acres is the ideal place to start your veterinarian career!  Our team of nine GP/ER DVMs have years of experience with a diverse caseload and enjoy teaching new veterinarians.  In addition, we are expanding our services.  This summer we will be moving into our new 30,000 sq. ft facility (see above) that will have 18 exam rooms, a dedicated ICU, CT, and endoscopy in addition to our current services.

Work Schedule

We provide six months of direct mentorship.  During this time, you will see cases alongside your mentoring veterinarian to allow direct oversight in general practice, emergency medicine, and surgery.  This phase of your employment will provide an excellent base as you transition to your primary schedule.  Once you begin your primary schedule, you will have other colleagues working alongside you to provide support.
