Dakota Hills Veterinary Clinic, an AAHA accredited, 5-doctor veterinary practice in Rapid City, South Dakota is looking for a veterinarian to join our team.
Dakota Hills Veterinary Clinic
We have most of the bells and whistles: digital radiology including dental, ultrasound, all the oscopies – laparo-, arthro-, rhino-, cysto-, and endo; full Idexx/Cornerstone laboratory, multiple anesthetic monitors and warming units, sevoflurane, fluid pumps, separate feline and canine hospitalization wards, and full pharmacy. We are 5 hours to the closest referral hospital so in addition to general practice our veterinarians have developed many additional skills including orthopedics (CBLO and advanced fracture repair), echo and abdominal ultrasound, and numerous soft tissue surgical procedures. We also have a dedicated rehabilitation room with underwater treadmill. We perform many dental and extraction procedures and have a boarded veterinary dentist that works out of our practice a 1-2 days each month.
We are immensely proud of our technical staff. They are highly skilled, motivated, and team oriented. Sample collection and processing, radiographs, anesthetic monitoring, intravenous catheter placement, surgical preparation and assistance, assistance in examination rooms, filling and billing, and care of hospitalized patients during the day and overnight are all part of our technician’s duties. This allows our doctors to focus on veterinary duties of examination and developing diagnostic and treatment plans.
Our ideal candidate will have a strong work ethic, be highly motivated, be personable and excel at communication, and be progressive and willing to learn. They would buy in to our AAHA certification and high standard of care. We are happy to provide mentorship if needed but prefer at least some experience, though recent graduates will be considered and are encouraged to apply.
We utilize the local emergency clinic after hours but do have technical staff overnight to care for our hospitalized patients. We work 18-19 days per month. While our clinicians are dedicated, we appreciate time away from work and a good work/life balance. The Black Hills and Rapid City, South Dakota provide endless opportunity for outdoor recreation. Rapid City is a great community in which to work, play, and live.
We offer a base salary (experience determined) plus a percentage of gross. Benefits include medical, dental, liability, disability, paid personal leave, continuing education, and multiple professional memberships based on interests.
