An Exciting Range Of Patients
Arbor View is unique in that we treat a wide range of animals including canine, feline, avian, reptile, small mammals, aquatic and other zoo/non-traditional exotic patients. Currently, 38% of our patients are exotic species and all of our doctors are passionate about these unique patients, which means if exotics is your jam you'll have plenty of mentorship and trained staff to work with them. If you'd rather treat only dogs and cats, we can accommodate that too! We even have one of the few Aquatic Certified Veterinarians (CertAqV) on staff. Arbor View also has a wildlife rehab license, allowing us to care for injured wildlife, should this be an interest for any veterinarians joining our team.
Mentorship And Collaboration
New grads (or seasoned vets if needed), don't worry we've got a structured mentorship program just for you, and it's not limited to the basics, especially for exotic pet medicine. Depending on the level of mentorship you need:
New grads are paired daily for the first 6 months for one on one coaching with one of our seasoned vets
Limited caseload for the first 6 months to allow new grads time to focus on learning, case management and discussion with your mentor
Don't fret about your surgery experience! New grads partner in surgery with one of our seasoned vets for the first 6 months, with extended support based on comfort levels and types of surgical procedures. The amount of surgical supervision is catered to each vets preference. While all vets have a dedicated surgery day at Arbor View, it's not required if surgery isn't your cup of tea!
Our recently expanded 8700 sq ft veterinary facility has 13 exam rooms and in-house state-of-the-art equipment, including CT, fluoroscopy, digital radiography (including dental), endoscopy, ultrasound, and more, you'll have all the tools you need to shine. We're AAHA accredited and dedicated to providing top-notch care to our patients. We take the time to get to know our clients and practice high-quality medicine.
