AAHA veterinary hospital located in South Bend, Indiana looking for a 4th associate to join our practice. We have been located in this great community for the past 50 years. We have a new building which was constructed in 2012 to accommodate our rapid growth. We have been able to expand our services to the community to be able to add boarding, grooming and puppy classes. We encourage our veterinarians to develop their niche. We have a growing exotic animal clientele but have also been the go-to clinic for many years for the local wildlife of the area. Doctors interests here include ophthalmology, soft tissue surgery and a strong interest in medicine. We believe in working up our patients and providing the best patient care and client education possible. Our staff is amazing. They are a caring and compassionate group of individuals with low turnover that allow us to accomplish our goal of educating our clients. Their skills allow the veterinarians to focus on veterinary medicine rather than technical work. We also work toward achieving a fear free approach with all of our patients, boarders and grooms.
While we work very hard for our clients during the week, time off is important to us and is a necessary part of being sharp for our patients each day. We offer 3 weeks of paid vacation and a full day off during the week. A new veterinarian will work alternate Saturdays and we do not see patients on Sunday. There are 2 local emergency clinics that we are able to refer patients to for care after hours. Other benefits include paid dues, retirement plan and are flexible, based on your individual needs.
We have Heska in house lab equipment, digital radiographs, digital dental radiographs, IM3 dental equipment, surgical C02 laser, therapy laser, and ultrasound machine. We also have paperless records and use Clientrax computer system.
South Bend is a great community. Within a few miles, we have Notre Dame University, St Mary's College, Holy Cross College, Bethel College, IUSB and Ivy Tech. For weekend fun, we have a great local farmers market. We have many farm to table restaurants in the area as well as a growing enthusiasm for craft beer. Mishawaka offers the local riverwalk for some outdoor hiking and running. Potato Creek State park is located south of the clinic and is a great place to hike, bike, camp and horseback ride. We are within 1 hour of Chicago and within 30 minutes of the Southern Michigan wine country and the beautiful Lake Michigan shore.
