Albany County Veterinary Hospital is looking for a full-time Companion Animal Veterinarian. We are in the town of Guilderland, near SUNY Albany, Stuyvesant Plaza, and Crossgates Mall. Albany is an hour and a half South of the Adirondack Park, 2 hours and 45 minutes North of New York City by train, bus or car, and about an hour West of New York’s borders with Vermont and Massachusetts.
We are currently a two-doctor practice, seeking a third, and are not likely to grow any larger, as we like our continuity of care and family-like environment. We have reasonable office hours, from 8 AM to 5 PM on weekdays and 8 to 12 PM on Saturdays. We are also covered by two excellent, full-service, 24-7 emergency clinics. Associates work alternating Saturdays, but have a consistent weekday off, so their work week alternates between four and four-and-a-half days.
Our primary concern is empathic, non-judgmental care of our clients and patients. We frequently refer to local multi-specialty Veterinary practices, in addition to having a boarded Veterinary surgeon available to work out of our clinic for more advanced or orthopedic surgical procedures. We are AAHA certified and perform ultrasound, dental and conventional digital radiography, and have an extensive IDEXX in-house laboratory.
For the right individual, we will provide a competitive salary commensurate with experience, health care enrollment through one of the major local carriers, disability insurance, vacation time, paid major holidays, sick time, and a CE allowance which would include registration fees, travel expenses and time off to attend conferences. All employees get pet care at hospital cost. We also will pay fees for licenses and dues including AVMA Plit coverage. There is optional enrollment in a retirement plan with employer matching contribution. Candidate must have a New York State License.
New York State License, DVM or VMD degree
