The Northwest Veterinary Group is looking for an enthusiastic, dedicated, and collaborative veterinarian to join our equine team at Mount Vernon Veterinary Hospital in Mount Vernon, Washington. Our leadership team is young and vibrant which is why we have experienced phenomenal growth in the equine department the past two years. This position is primarily ambulatory and comes with a veterinary assistant and a fully stocked pickup with vet insert. Desired interest and skills include lameness, internal medicine, repro, dentistry, regenerative medicine, field surgery, communication, and community outreach.
We have an extensive complement of diagnostic equipment available which includes digital x-ray (fixed and 3 portable units), 2 GE digital ultrasounds, endoscopy (including a 3 meter gastroscope), Powerfloat dental equipment, in house Abaxis lab equipment, and twice daily pickups for Antech reference lab. Recently we incorporated ProStride in our practice as we expand our regenerative medicine capabilities. In addition, we have a full surgical suite and an 8-stall hospital facility with outdoor pens and fenced lunging area. For more extensive procedures including MRI and colic surgeries we have a large referral hospital less than an hour away. You will also have the support and collaboration of 5 experienced equine veterinarians in our group.
We are in beautiful Northwest Washington, 60 miles north of Seattle. Our location offers accessibility to hiking, snow skiing, watersports, big city life, and so much more all within doable daily travels. For families, there are many sport, art, recreational, and educational opportunities available all with a community feel. The area is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts as we are close to the water – salt water and fresh water, the mountains and the beautiful Skagit Valley and San Juan Islands. It is green year around here in the Pacific Northwest. And if the lights of the big city and its cultural activities are what you are interested in, Seattle is only an hour away.
We encourage participation in community activities including client education seminars, vaccination clinics, presentations to pony clubs, Kiwanis, Rotary, etc. We also are actively engaged in social media via Facebook, Twitter, and our website. Our marketing person and equine vet assistant provides support in this area and is very active herself in the horse community. Find out more about us on our website at www.mountvernonvethospital.com.
