Littlestown Vet Hospital is looking to hire Veterinarians!
We are a family friendly, busy small animal/exotic hospital near Gettysburg PA. We are non corporate and are a Fear Free Certified Practice in a bright, sunny restored barn. We are looking for the right person(s) to join our team as a part time/full-time veterinarian seeing dogs and cats as well as exotic pets if the doctor chooses.
Benefits include a competitive salary, health insurance, dental and vision insurance, and 401k with matching 4% contribution. We pay for licensing and a continuing education allowance. The schedule includes a full day off weekly, and a monthly rotating Saturday from 8am-12pm for a great work/life balance.
We have multiple lasers, digital x ray and dental x ray, and an talented, established, hardworking team. Our 5 experienced doctors consult each other about cases every day and will provide outstanding mentoring. We would absolutely consider buy-in for the right person or persons!
The most important and valuable resource we have is our amazing team. Our management philosophy is to hire compassionate, talented, hardworking, team-oriented people and treat them well. We trust our staff to make decisions, educate clients, and participate fully in the care we all provide.
We have five doctors. Two of our doctors see exotic patients - sometimes 6-7 species in the same day! We also have a doctor who is acupuncture and chiropractic-certified. We have over 130 years of experience combined and would be excited to mentor a new graduate.
We truly have the best clients imaginable. We are glad to engage with clients both in the facility and in the community. Among other activities, we participate in the local fall parade with a float every year. Our float is a fan-favorite and has been a winner every year!
Our hospital is in a barn that is over 160 years old. Formerly a livestock farm then pottery studio, the barn was renovated by our doctors for use as a state-of-the-art vet hospital. It has bright windows, high ceilings, a solar-paneled roof, and provides staff and clients alike with a charming setting full of animal art. Though the bones of the building may be... old, our facility is modern. We have an in-house lab, multiple lasers for surgery and therapy, and digital dental radiology. This facility has won the Historic Gettysburg Adams County Barn Preservation Award and the Gettysburg Adams Chamber of Commerce Environmental Stewardship Award.
We are located in Adams County, PA just north of the Mason-Dixon (PA-MD) line about 10 miles from Gettysburg (Gettysburg College, Gettysburg National Military Park). Littlestown is a rural town within driving distance of Baltimore, Washington, DC, and Harrisburg. There are many local outdoor recreation opportunities for camping, hiking, fishing, boating, and biking. Numerous regional events are held locally including music festivals, wine/brew festivals, antique shows, Civil War reenactments, and the infamous Gettysburg Bike Week.
We believe in keeping up-to-date with current standards of practice. We use Avimark PMS. Our practice and all employees are Fear Free certified. We have an entrance on a separate floor for cats and planned euthanasias which allows for a quieter, more cat-friendly space.
