About Us: The Watertown Animal Hospital L.L.P. is a privately owned, state-of-the-art practice that has been servicing the Watertown community and surrounding areas since 1970. We are a progressive, 4-Doctor mixed practice that provided compassionate care and a high standard of customer service to our clients. The Watertown Animal Hospital is open from 8am until 6:30pm Monday through Friday and Saturday from 8am until 1pm.
What we need: We are currently looking for ambitious and personable veterinarians to join our growing team! We would like to add small and large animal practitioners, and possibly practitioners, for our well-established Hospital.
Small animal details include a newly renovated practice with all the cutting-edge technology: IDEXX ProCyte and Catalyst DX, digital radiology, dental radiology, high speed dental unit, wet lift table, light microscope, Impromed Infinity software, and Surgivet monitoring. There is mentoring and support available as well as an experienced, well rounded, and growing support staff. There are opportunities available for professional growth in many areas, including ultrasound, physical therapy, etc. We do have shared on-call service with four other local practices, but minimal on-call shifts are required. There is 24-7/365 emergency clinics less than an hour away in Syracuse (the Veterinary Medical Center of CNY).
Large animal details include Ibex portable ultrasound, 4x4 truck with Bowie Box, and all other necessary equipment and supplies will be provided. Mentoring and support are provided. On-call service is shared equally among the large animal veterinarians. Our clients consist of family owned dairies ranging from less than 50 cows to more than 2000 and include conventional, organic, and Amish production, as well as some pleasure horses and small ruminants. There is a lot of opportunity to expand into pet and production small ruminant medicine as well as equine, backyard poultry, and swine.
Watertown is close to the St. Lawrence river, Lake Ontario, the Adirondacks, and we are only 30 minutes from the Canadian border. It is a great area for outdoor sports enthusiasts as year-round recreation abounds. Hunting, fishing, snow sports, water sports, hiking, camping … the list goes on. Watertown is a small city with a stable economy due to the nearby Army base at Fort Drum. We are also an easy drive to Syracuse, Albany, and Rochester.
