Our clinic is an AAHA accredited small animal practice looking for a full or part time associate veterinarian in Eastern Iowa. We are a well-established practice, open since 1954, with four doctors and a long-term support staff. Our clinic treats dogs and cats with the occasional pocket pet or reptile. An applicant interested in exotic medicine would be a bonus. The practice is up-to-date with digital radiographs, digital dental radiographs, Tonovet, full pharmacy, in-house IDEXX lab, acupuncture services, and modern ultrasound unit. Being active in the local community is important to our clinic culture and we love following our patients through all stages of their lives. Most of our visits are focused on wellness with a full half hour scheduled for each appointment. Besides wellness we will see daytime emergencies and perform full work-ups on sick pets; which keeps our days varied and interesting. Previous experience is desirable, but we will consider new graduates as well. With multiple doctors in the clinic at once we are able to provide a good environment of mentorship. We offer after hour emergency services for current clients, but there are two emergency clinics about an hour drive for transfer of critical cases. All on-call duties are shared on an equal basis by all four veterinarians. Hours for veterinarians are from 8:00 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. four days a week with a full lunch hour, and 8 to noon every other Saturday. A healthy work/life balance is encouraged at our clinic as we feel time off is important to maintain motivation in any position. Any job candidate should be willing to practice high quality medicine, be good with client communication, and able to direct staff with a positive and productive attitude. Benefits include retirement contributions (Simple IRA), paid license fees, paid memberships to AVMA and AAHA, as well as a budget for CE.
Muscatine is a quaint mid-sized town on the Mississippi River. There are several major industries in town (HON, Allsteel, Bridgestone, Monsanto, Stanley Consultants, GPC, Kent, and more) which creates a diverse and active community of professionals. It is a short drive to Iowa City and the Quad Cities for weekend visits and cultural activities. Nearby is Wildcat Den State Park with enjoyable hikes and a historical Pine Creek Grist Mill for sunny days outside with pets. Enjoy the benefits of small town life without being too far away from it all. For more information about the local community visit: http://www.muscatine.com/pages/AboutMuscatine
