Mixed Animal Associate Veterinarian

Salary: $85,000.00 - $90,000.00 Annually
Application Deadline: N/A


"Dedicated to the advancement of producers through a goal-oriented focus on animal health and performance while providing affordable, compassionalte care for all animals."

Our Culture:  To say that we are absolutely passionate about our clinic culture is an understatement.  We are looking for someone who is excited to work and grow as a team.  We believe that with a firm foundation of trust for each other and a willingness to engage in respectufl conflict, we can grow both personally and in business.  If you have never read the book (or listened to the audiobook) "The Ideal Team Player" by Patric Lencioni, we highly recommend it.   

Objective:  We are seeking a full-time veterinarian to join our quickly growing mixed animal veterinary clinic with two locations in central and south-central Montana. We currently have 2 full-time and 2 part-time veterinarians. Our clients are predominantly larger, professional cow/calf ranches who press us to be better every day. We are seeking an individual who is invested in the beef industry with the drive to bring as much information as possible to our clients from the current research and technologies being developed. We enjoy providing top level care in our rural settings for small animal and equine patients as well. 

Package includes:  Competative salary + profit sharing, a real opportunity to buy into the practice after a reasonable period of time and determining that we are a good partner match, health insurance, IRA match, Montana license, DEA license, AVMA membership, MVMA membership, 2 other professional organization memberships, PTO, 4-day work week outside of busy seasons, shared on-call, complete CE expenses for appropriate conferences/events, clinic cell phone, and I am probably forgetting something more!

Facilities:  The two locations that we work out of are quite different. Both locations are fully equipped for up-to-date cattle herd work. This includes portable Silencer chutes, multiple ultrasounds for pregnancy testing, Lane Manufacturing and SireMaster electroejaculators, and everything else for all seasons of the cow/calf cycle. 

At our clinic in south-central Montana (Wilsall), we are predominately ambulatory.  There is a small facility for haul-in bovine dystocia and equine emergencies; this location is 98% large animal. Multiple Terafloats, Alu-speculums, portable DR xray, IBEXX Evo-Ultrasound with multiple probes, and a set of portable horse stocks assist us in the day to day equine appointments. We are currently working with an architect to build a new haul-in facility that will be based in Livingston, MT (20 miles South of Wilsall). 

At the location in Harlowton, we have a complete, brick-and-morter facility with lots of updated equipment.  This location is 25% small animal and 75% cow/calf, with potential to grow all aspects, including equine.  We have recently updated much of the small animal equipment; including brand new DR xray (also portable so can take in the field for large animal), new anesthesia machine, new anesthesia monitoring equipment, up to date in house blood machines.  We are firm belivers that even rural America can provide top level care.  On the large animal side of things, this facility is equipped with a full set of corrals and pens, a tilt chute, equine barn, power float, and storage barns.  

The Practice Area:  You definitely get all 4 seasons in Montana. We are located in the foothills of the Rockies and surrounded by multiple mountain ranges; including the Crazy Mountains, Bridger Mountains, Little Belts, and more. For recreating in our area, summer offers endless rivers and lakes to float and fish, mountains to explore, and music festivals to attend. Fall is best known for hunting everything from waterfowl and upland birds to elk, moose, big horn sheep and about everything in-between. Winter provides skiing and snowmobiling enthusiasts with the paradise that people from around the country and world travel to experience. Spring then is a breath of new life with calving season, shed hunting, and a welcome reprieve from winter. 

If this job opportunity sounds like it would fit you well, we hope you will reach out!  We welcome both new graduates and experienced veterinarians to apply.  There is something that we can learn from all of you.
