About Horizon Ridge Animal Hospital/ Henderson Animal Hospital
We are privately owned with four separate Veterinary Hospitals in the Henderson/Boulder City area of Southern Nevada. All hospitals are well equipped with digital radiography for general and dental care, ultrasonography carts, video otoscopes/rigid scopes, etc. The floor plan of each hospital is open with simple layouts and plenty of natural light.
We practice a team oriented approach with doct...ors receiving high base salaries. This creates an environment conducive to learning and discourages competition among the veterinarians. The practice owner does not actively see clients, but instead supports the veterinarians behind the scenes giving mentor-ship which is especially important for new graduates.
Southern Nevada is unique in that the weather is sunny 350 plus days a year. This allows one to wear shorts at least nine months out of the year (except to work). Southern Nevada is within hours of the beaches in California and the most beautiful mountains of Utah. As an employer we believe that your off time is just as important as your time at work. Therefore we strive to protect your time away from the office. Oh, by the way, there are no state or local taxes in Nevada. More bang for your buck!
In closing, contact us if you are interested in becoming a part of a practice that believes in a team approach, offers profit sharing program for those that want to call us home and, most importantly, believes that patient care comes above all else.
