Locust Grove Vet has been happily serving the community's pets and their people for many years. To us, pets are family, and we love them and want the best for them. That's why we would like for you to join us in our mission to provide loving, quality health care to our patients, and to help homeless and indigent pets in the community. You can visit our website www.locustgrovevet.net to see our facility. To learn more about us and our practice, an in person or virtual visit is welcome. You will find a comfortable environment with good people who enjoy working with patients, clients, and one another. We are a not corporate, so our practice setting allows you more freedom to practice in a way that meets each individual patient's and client's needs. That flexibility is very satisfying, and is one of the many reasons that our practice is appreciated by so many.
We know that having a schedule that allows for free time for family, friends, activities, and personal growth, is important to your own health and well being. We can be quite flexible with scheduling, with a 3.5 to 4 day work week for full-time associates, and time off for CE or special events, holidays, and vacations.
Our location is great with many opportunities for outside work activities - lakes, rivers, hiking, riding, biking, University town nearby, shopping, etc., and central to Richmond, Washington, DC, and Charlottesville. Housing costs and the general cost of living are very reasonable.
We care for cats and dogs, but are quite open to adding other small animal species to our practice. If you have an interest in a specific area of small animal practice, you will be supported in continuing that interest, or developing it further, with time off and/or financial help for training and continuing ed. We want you to enjoy your work. We want you to know that your help, talents, and dedication are not just needed, but also appreciated.
We offer the usual benefits - CE, license fees, health insurance, retirement plan, AVMA membership, personal pet care, bonuses, vacation time, and sick leave, etc. If there is a specific benefit you may need, please let us know.
Thank you for your interest in our clinic. We hope to meet you soon.
