Allegan Veterinary Clinic is searching for a Managing Veterinarian to build an engaging culture, grow and lead our team of doctors, and drive high medical standards. We recently moved into a brand new, state-of-the-art, facility where we will continue to see a wide variety of small animal cases ranging from sick/wellness exams, day time emergencies, soft tissue surgeries, and much more. We offer a highly competitive salary with production and milestone bonuses with hospital growth, $50,000 in bonuses, and a comprehensive benefits package!
If you are looking for an energizing place to practice medicine while cultivating an engaging culture and driving high medical standards this is definitely the place for you! In 1983, Dr. William Brown first opened our doors with an “everyone is welcome” approach, and we have kept it that way since. Our doctors do not practice medicine in their "own lanes", but instead value team-work and often collaborate and share knowledge with each other throughout the day.
We offer nutritional counseling, parasite control, bereavement counseling, and diabetes management.
