Hill Country Animal Hospital is located in NW San Antonio/Helotes. We are on the edge of the beautiful Hill Country just outside loop 1604. Helotes has the top public schools in the Northside district and we are also just 30 minutes from downtown San Antonio.
Hill Country Animal Hospital is a five doctor AAHA accredited small animal practice. We are seeking a full or part time associate veterinarian with an interest in practicing high-quality, diagnostically-driven medicine in a friendly, team-focused environment. We are also a certified AAFP Silver Level Feline Friendly hospital with a concerted effort to provide low-stress, positive experience for our patients and a personal, compassionate experience for our clients.
Our high technician to doctor ratio (4.8:1) allows our doctors to focus on medical care and treatment plans while leaving sample gathering, imaging, and nursing care in the hands of our capable, experienced veterinary technician team. Our appointments are 30-45 minutes long depending on appointment type to allow our veterinarians time to complete appointments and notes.
We provide progressive medical and surgical care to our patients. Our hospital technology includes a Cutting Edge surgical laser, digital radiograph suite, full in-house Abaxis laboratory suite, digital dental radiography, multi-parameter monitoring equipment, video monitoring of patient kennels, Logiq P5 ultrasound machine, and Class 1V therapeutic laser.
