Surgery (and Medicine) Mentorship: Animal Hospitals of Rowlett/Heath love to perform as many surgical procedures "in house" as possible. We feel that pet owners that can not afford specialists still need options over no care or euthanasia. Broadening a general practitioners skill set beyond spay, neuters and lumpectomies is both satisfying and financially rewarding. We will customize a program to grow your skill set. This may include in house tutoring and/or outside formal surgery continuing education for orthopedics and/or soft tissue. Surgery is sooo hands on - VIN and text books can only go so far.
Internal Medicine and Wellness mentorship is also available and customizable to your needs.
Remarkable Culture: Animal Hospitals of Rowlett/Heath are hospitals where you come to stay and build your career. Our Associate DVMS have been with us for over 50+ years. We foster a learning environment while providing opportunities for our team members to expand their skillset and nurture individual growth and development.
Work Life Balance: We focus on the well-being of our team to provide work-life balance. We offer a 4–day work week, 3 day if you want to do longer days- current doctors don't. We consider 30 hours FT! Rotation of holidays and weekends included. No Sundays. No after hours ER. We also offer a rotating 4 day weekend that averages every 6 weeks.
