Community Animal Hospital in Dublin, VA is looking for a full or part time associate veterinarian to join our team of dedicated doctors and staff in caring for the pets of the New River Valley. We are a small animal hospital that focuses on excellent and state of the art medical and surgical treatments for our patients. We offer full in-house labwork, digital radiographs, ultrasonography, dental radiographs, surgical laser, and laser therapy. We provide surgical care including almost all soft tissue procedures as well as full dental care and many advanced orthopedic procedures. We practice balanced anesthetic techniques including constant rate infusions and local anesthesia. We have full anesthetic monitoring equipment including pulse ox, non-invasive blood pressure (Cardell and Doppler), etCO2 and EKG as well as a dedicated assistant to monitor anesthesia during procedures.
Our support staff is well trained and most have worked for the hospital for many years.

New associates will have the opportunity to be mentored in ultrasonography, soft tissue and orthopedic procedures, dentistry, progressive medicine and anesthesia. Associates are encouraged to pursue their own interests, and new services (such as some exotics care or acupuncture) would be considered if the applicant had experience in those fields.

We are minutes from Claytor Lake State Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway and about an hour from Roanoke and a day’s drive from parts of Tennessee and North Carolina. There are plenty of opportunities to get outside and hike, kayak, fish, swim, or just enjoy a beautiful drive year round. The New River Valley is becoming known for its craft beers, wineries, and restaurants including historic Mountain Lake Lodge (where Dirty Dancing was filmed) and Chateau Morrisette.
