Veterinarian - Large Animal

Job Number: #1992

Are you a veterinarian that is experienced in or willing to learn feedlot consulting? Do you enjoy practicing individual animal medicine, consultative work with feedlots, teaching/training, regulatory work and applied clinical research?

Join a growing and progressive veterinary practice and have an opportunity to work with most of the largest and most progressive feedlots across Canada.

Our client is a 12-vet practice working for livestock operations of all sizes in Ontario and Southern Alberta, and with a supportive team of over 50 staff consisting of office administrators, processing crews and technicians. They are a partner in the largest livestock veterinary group in Canada- a like-minded group of vets practicing in swine, beef, and poultry animal health care. Together they form the largest practicing livestock vet clinic in Canada, affording significant strategic business advantages and advantages to their customers, and they are expanding rapidly.

They are accepting applications for Associate Veterinarian positions for their recently acquired feedlot practice in the Lethbridge, AB area. While the primary interest is for vets to serve their numerous feedlot clients, they also welcome applicants with interest or expertise in swine medicine, epidemiology or applied clinical research as they continue to expand their services.

They have been in the feedlot business for a long time and enjoy the majority market share in the segment. They understand the importance of ‘boots on the ground’ and personal interaction in the feed yards. They strive to keep their clients informed and current while focusing on cattle health. It is fundamentally important to provide excellence in customer service to their clients across all avenues of veterinary medicine and consultation. They do not limit themselves to the traditional role of veterinarians- they go above and beyond to provide services of value and to establish and foster advanced relationships with their clients. They believe in transparency, value, and superior animal care- working with their clients in the way they want to be served.

This people-first culture has brought significant success to their practice and has created an excellent employee environment- one that respects work-life balance, going well beyond just talking about it. Offering industry-leading mentorship, equipment, facilities, compensation and more, they look forward to meeting you- whether you are an experienced accredited vet or a newly accredited DVM graduate.

This new position is immediately available and is a unique opportunity to join a growing market leader.

Our client offers an attractive compensation package consisting of base salary above market norms, variable opportunity, 100% paid benefits, company vehicle, work clothing, meals, continuing education allowance, business tools and more. Relocation assistance may also be available.
