Seeking Full Time Associate Veterinarian to join an expanding 100% Avian and Exotic Animal Practice. Our current team has decades of combined experience in small mammals, birds, reptiles, primates, fish and amphibians. This is a great opportunity for either an experienced exotic animal veterinarian or someone who would like to branch out into exotic animal medicine. Our case load would easily support someone working toward a certification in exotic animal or avian medicine and surgery.
We have two locations in the heart of the Puget Sound area of western Washington State. Our main hospital is in Kirkland, directly across Lake Washington from Seattle and within easy commute of many towns and cities. Our branch practice is an hour south in University Place near Tacoma. This is near Vashon and other islands in the Sound and within reach of the beautiful temperate rain forests of the Olympic Peninsula!
Washington state has many opportunities for outdoor activities – it doesn’t rain ALL the time! It is known for winter skiing and other sports, hiking, boating and camping. Seattle has a lively music, museum and restaurant scene as do neighboring Bellevue and Tacoma. There are numerous opportunities for partners or family members who are not veterinarians (numerous opportunities for those who are, too – Washingtonians love their animals!). Main employers include: Costco (you know the “Kirkland” brand?), Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Boeing, Alaska Airlines, Meta, UPS, Starbucks, T-mobile and Nordstrom. University of Washington is just across the lake and has a world-renowned medical center for human medics.
