Small Animal Veterinarian

Ingangsdatum: 17 januari 2023

We are looking for a fifth veterinarian for our small animal hospital in beautiful Kelowna, BC. With the work-life balance philosophy in mind, the full-time position consists of a 4-day work week. There are no on call duties and overnight patients can be transferred to the local emergency hospital for care. Being in a larger centre allows for timely and easy referrals to local board certified and orthopedic surgeons, an internal medicine specialist, CT imaging, and endoscopic procedures. The position includes a competitive salary, a generous CE allowance, a disability insurance policy, an extended medical and dental plan, all professional association dues, a monthly gas allowance, a monthly fitness allowance, a VIN membership, and a 20K signing bonus. A good sense of humor will come in handy when working with the other 4 staff veterinarians, who have been at the hospital for 10-15-20+ years, and the other staff, who consist of 4 20+ years members and 12 newer members.

We moved into our completely renovated, 2500 sq ft, stand alone hospital in 2008. A 1500 sq ft addition with full upgrades to the exterior and landscaping was completed 2 years ago. Our hospital has a full Idexx in house laboratory, a DR digital x-ray unit, a CR digital dental x-ray unit, a CO2 surgical laser unit, a therapeutic laser light unit, and an ultrasound machine.

Kelowna, a city of 150,000, was just recognized as the second best small Canadian city to live in. It lays on the shores of the beautiful Okanagan Lake with other amazing recreational lakes a short drive away. It has many different amenities and a year-round climate for the urbanite, the avid gardener, and the outdoor enthusiast. It is surrounded by many vineyards, orchards, 19 golf courses, 3 world class ski resorts, numerous mountain biking, x-country ski and hiking trails. It also has a full-fledged university and international airport.
