Associate Veterinarian

Posting Date: January 11, 2023 at 4:13 pm

Position Location: Vilonia

Position Type: Associate Veterinarian

Vilonia Animal Clinic, located in the heart of central Arkansas, is searching for an Associate Veterinarian. We believe that our private practice, including the dynamic team, clinic facility, and our local community offer an attractive opportunity for the new or recent veterinary school graduate.

Our practice, with a mission to provide quality medical care to our patients, and to build strong, caring, lifelong relationships with our clients and their pets, has enjoyed significant growth and progression over the past 26 years.

Our philosophy of practicing veterinary medicine and practice ownership

Successful, happy, lifelong practice of veterinary medicine requires a love of practicing medicine and is based on relationships: with our clients, with our patients, and with our staff.

Clients’ pets are family! They must trust the doctor caring for those pets and that trust comes from long-term bonding and relationship-building. We have to communicate well and work together with our clients to determine how best to care for their pet – medically and financially.
Strong relationship building with clients ensures a strong, long-term livelihood for all members of our veterinary team.

Relationships and trust also must be established with our patients. Learning how our patients differ, what behaviors they have in common, and how to respect and care for them individually is a vital part of being a great practitioner.

Quality, caring veterinary medical care will not exist without an inspired, committed staff who are also bonded through mutual respect and trust to us, their clients and their fellow team members. We are doctors and owners, but we know we must have the trust and respect of our team to practice excellent medicine. We work hard to do that every day.
