Aroostook Veterinary Services in Northern Maine is seeking an experienced veterinarian to provide services to our farm clients. The practice was started in 1983 and has enjoyed a loyal and fulfilling client base over all the years since. In May 2017, Dr. Coville sold the small animal side of the practice to a team of young veterinarians who are continuing on in the practice's original building. To continue meeting the demands of the farm side of the practice, Dr. Coville is seeking an energetic individual who aspires to ownership. The mobile farm practice consists of a fully loaded F-250 with Bowie, along with Uno Digital x-ray and Swiss-Vet power dental tools. The current practice load is approximately 80% equine with bovine, caprine, cervid, porcine, and poultry filling out the balance. The practice area extends over 150 miles north to south with Houlton, Maine in the approximate center. Dr. Coville is not only highly motivated to find a new owner for AVS in the next 2yrs, but is in a unique position to introduce any new vet to the area to additional potential income opportunities.
As this is an on-the-road farm practice, self-sufficiency and confidence are priorities. Therefore, an individual with 2+ yrs of experience might be more suitable for this position. However, a new grad with confidence and determination would readily be considered.
Additional Salary Information: Employment would be under a Pro-Sal basis, with the productivity portion being exceedingly generous.
