Job Description: As we discussed on the phone, Pet Emergency Clinic is looking for a full-time associate DVM as an additional veterinarian.

 

This position would involve being the second DVM on a shift most of the time rather than the sole DVM. It would be working mostly with Dr. Sally Kate Scroggs, who is an extremely talented doctor and a natural teacher.

 

I am also very interested in helping a new DVM become a confident doctor. I enjoy teaching and I believe that I am very helpful on the medical record keeping end, on how to get things done efficiently, and on boosting a new doctor's confidence. I also handle client relations problems or upsets when they occur, so the young doctor need not be overly concerned about that.

 

The schedule is not set in stone, but it will involve generous time off that is really time off. (An ER DVM works the shift and then is truly off)

 

We tend to pay pretty well and are provide a generous CE allowance and dues for associations, etc. I can get into exact pay in discussions with the candidate.

 

Our work environment is friendly and happy and is professionally managed. There are a good number of very well-trained staff members on shift all the time. These staff members are very good at doing things such as catheters, pulling samples, getting rads., etc. They are also very willing to assist a young DVM at becoming very proficient as well.

 

Regarding the clinic, we are well-equipped. In surgery, we use only Sevoflurane gas, and we have excellent monitoring, including blue tooth EKG, capnograph, Pulse ox, blood pressure and always a human monitor.

 

We have DR radiography, which creates an image in 6 seconds, and monitors in all exam rooms that can display rads. We are state inspected and meet all radiation safety requirements.

 

We use ultrasound aggressively, almost similar to a stethoscope. Dr. Scroggs has become so proficient that local DVM's actually refer her cases. But our main use of Ultrasound is for the FAST scan and the TFAST (Thoracic FAST), which allow rapid detection of fluid in cavities. All 4 doctors have been to training on that and the new doctor can be expected to be sent to San Antonio for FAST Scan training. (This is actually fairly straight-forward and simple enough to learn)

 

We have more fluid pumps that any other clinic in this area, and almost every pet on an IV gets a pump.

 

We have invested heavily in warmth, with several hard warm water circulating heating pads, several soft, and several warm air machines (Bair Hugger type) so we may heat above and below. We also use a fluid bag warmer, so our fluids are warm to start.

 

[We equipped the clinic and fine tuned procedures to meet the VECCS level 3 certification requirements. We will be able to certify once we hire 2 full time RVT's. But we otherwise meet all requirements. (check out the requirements on the VECCS website) In the interim, we have now decided to become AAHA accredited, and will have that complete by 1 July, 2018]

 

For a doctor who wants to treat sick animals, emergency work is extremely rewarding. We get to make a diagnosis and we get to use lots of very cool equipment and lots of very well trained staff members. To me it calls for full use of your veterinary training. Surgery, Internal medicine, Opthalmology, and even occasionally Dermatology fall under our veil.

 

All in all, this could be a very good job for the right person.

Job Description: Associate Veterinarian needed for a completely small animal practice on the Westbank of New Orleans. Full time.

My new associate is having to unexpectedly relocate to Texas for family. I am looking for a veterinarian who is interested in pediatric and feral cat surgeries as I participate in the Jefferson Parish Fix-A-Feline program and never know what will arrive on a given day. We are appointment-based for surgeries, but there is a wide variety of big toms and youngsters. It all depends on who is hungry the evening before. Surgeries are two pounds and up for ferals. I would like someone who is not afraid of pets (you would be surprised who becomes a vet and is leery of Great Danes or any animal who looks them straight in the eye). The ability to do 8-10 surgeries in the morning and see appointments every twenty minutes is desired. Note: you will not be performing surgeries and seeing appointments in the same morning/time frame. No emergency call. Alternating Saturday mornings and availability to treat hospitalized animals on those same weekends. Call or email for more information.
