Animal Emergency Clinic of the High Country in Boone, NC is looking for an associate veterinarian to join our team. Our ER work is both challenging and rewarding. Due to the nature of the cases we see, we have developed a tight knit and highly efficient team led by five doctors. Most cases are managed in-house, but we also refer cases to tertiary care facilities. We have a full in-house IDEXX suite of lab equipment, surgical ventilator, cautery, video endoscopy, digital radiography, referral quality ultrasound and in-house blood bank. There is ready access to an ultrasound/echocardiography specialist, and we have an ophthalmologist that visits twice monthly. We are in the process of being credentialed as a Level II Triage Center through the Emergency & Critical Care Society. As a trusted member of our community, we support many local rescue groups including Watauga County Humane Society.
With both leadership and mentorship opportunities, this position is a great fit for both an experienced vet or a new grad.
Boone is routinely ranked as one of the best small towns in the country. We have a huge variety of outdoor activities and are home to Appalachian State University - a university with a student population of 30,000. We have four distinct seasons with cold, snowy winters and cooler summers than other parts of the state. Boone is a tourist destination year-round and attracts visitors from all over the country.
We offer competitive salary, medical benefits (including health, dental and vision), 401(k), employee assistance program (EAP), CE allowance, vacation, dues, liability coverage, mentorship and so much more.
