Nelson Animal Hospital is a small animal clinic located in Littleton Colorado.
We are currently a 3 doctor practice that is seeing significant growth and are looking to hire to accommodate our wonderful clients. As a collaborative team with more than 35 years of experience between the doctors, we are ready to bring on another associate of any experience level.
Finding a doctor who we can support and grow with is a priority. We work hard to ensure a work-life balance for the entire team. Single doctor days are infrequent, allowing collaboration to work through those tough cases. We are adequately staffed to allow you to practice the way you want to do medicine.
Our staff is a close-knit crew who push to advocate for both the pet and the owners, while actively supporting one another. At Nelson Animal Hospital, we encourage preventative care and appropriate diagnostics when indicated.
The clinic was remodeled about 2 years ago doubling our square footage and providing an updated space for our doctors to practice. This includes 4 exam rooms, a large and open treatment area, surgical suite, and a dedicated doctors office. We also host multiple in-house diagnostics including Idess blood and urine machines, digital x-rays, digital dental x-rays, and a butterfly ultrasound. You will also have the option to send out for additional testing to different labs.
As a doctor, you will have a 4-day work week with rotating Saturdays (8-12). We are closed on Sundays as well as some holidays.
