Fear Free, Low Stress handling, Cat Friendly, Pain Aware, Positive Practice Culture (Human!) - we're invested in these aspects of practice to make the experience better for everyone.
Ours is an independent, veterinarian-owned, general practice in small animal medicine and surgery located in north central Vermont. We have a busy daytime practice and provide limited emergency cover for our area (currently 8 am to 8 pm daily).
Veterinarians are encouraged and supported in developing areas of interest. Group practice and its inherent collaboration naturally fosters learning, and formal mentorship opportunities are available. There is plenty of interesting work and the support from staff is amazing (Not by accident - we work at it!). It is a good practice for new graduates as well as seasoned practitioners.
The people who thrive and love working here cite rewarding casework and outcomes as well as excellent coworkers as the best parts of the job.
This is a practice that is constantly changing, with "for the better" driving such efforts.
LVVS was founded in 1985, achieved AAHA certification in 1988, and built a new free-standing hospital in 1998. We have a long history of investing in people, equipment, and facility. Currently staff numbers 32, including 4 experienced (> 15 years each) veterinarians and a recent graduate, and support staff working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (the overnight shift provides nursing care to hospitalized patients and readies the hospital for the next day). Close to 1/2 of the staff has been on board for more than a decade. We have well-established referral relationships with area veterinary specialists.
Services provided include 1st opinion activities (wellness care, medical case work-ups and management, dentistry, surgery [come learn laparoscopic surgery!], reproductive services, laboratory, imaging, telemedicine, emergency and critical care). We are currently developing rehabilitation and behavior offerings. We have a canine blood bank on-site with a staff/client owned donor program. Radiographs and ultrasounds can be reviewed by board-certified radiologists if needed; and all imaging is digital - radiographs, dental radiographs, and ultrasound.
We have regular in house staff education, a generous CE budget, and our practice has an advisory steering committee (cross sectional in terms of staff positions). Our mission is "patient advocacy as a team". Our nursing/technical support staff is superb, and our doctors have more time to be doctors as a result.
Vermont is a great place to live, play, grow (personally and professionally), and be a veterinarian; although away from many of the elements of urban environments, there is ample opportunity to pursue your interests, both in and outside professional pursuits.
