1) When you were young and decided to become a veterinarian, did you wish and hope that someday you'd work for a big corporation?
2) Do you aspire to provide advanced general practice, real care to pets and clients beyond just providing wellness care?
3) Would you like to be a part of a practice culture that respects and values every team member and leverages all of their strengths and talents to continuously improve the care provided?
4) Do you hope to work in a practice where maintaining team members' work/life balance is a top priority?

8) Would you like to live in a multicultural city with a world-class culinary and craft beer scene?
9) Do you want to be a part of something special?
1) Private and proud! We have been competing with the big "cookie cutter" corporations for clients, patients and employees successfully for the last 25+ years. We compete well because we treat people well, not because we have an ulterior motive.
2) Nobody is getting a thank-you gift from a client because they did an excellent job vaccinating a pet and then "ghosting" the client when really needed! Clients love us because we are there for them and their pets when they need us.
3) We dedicate 3 hours each week for staff development, including two hours involving the entire team. Team members submit their own "hot topics" to be discussed. Everyone's ideas are considered and respected. We are a strong, successful practice because we are ALL working to make our practice better.
4) We believe in personal time, family time, paid vacation, paid sick time, maternity leave and supporting each other. One year, 9 of our team members had babies! We are a community.
5) "Caring for you... as we care for your pets" has been our stated philosophy since our first day and it continues to be our guiding principle.
6) In addition to weekly staff development meetings, we believe in formal continuing education for all team members. We have also been a VIN member since the very beginning. We have weekly doctors' meetings and we discuss and get involved in each other's cases as a basic principle.
7) The St. Louis Art Museum, The St. Louis Zoo (best in the nation), the Municipal Opera (The Muny), the St. Louis Science Center and many others are free to ALL regardless of wealth or what neighborhood you live in! Beautiful Forest Park has been delighting St. Louisans since the 1904 World's Fair and beyond! We are also a great sports town! The world famous St. Louis Cardinals and recent Stanley Cup Champs St. Louis Blues are hometown favorites!
8) St. Louis has one of the most vibrant "foodie" scenes in the Country, with many multicultural and top rated offerings! Additionally, we are often rated at the top for our craft beer scene, being one of the most important beer cities in the world!
