Best Friends Animal Hospital in Grayslake, Illinois is hiring a full-time or part-time Associate Veterinarian! All experience levels will be considered.
About our clinic: Best Friends Animal Hospital is a full-service small animal hospital that treats dogs, cats, and small mammals (about 10% of our caseload). Our co-medical directors, Doctors Donna Rauch and Roberta Scarbeck, founded the practice in 1997 and are very well-established and respected in the community. We are fortunate to have many long-standing clients and staff, in addition to a new and growing clientele that are drawn to the clinic for our compassionate, individualized quality care, and communication.
Our hospital is fully equipped with digital radiography, an in-house laboratory, tonometry, cold laser, and a new Midmark dental machine. We utilize the services of a mobile ultrasonographer to perform our diagnostic ultrasounds and echocardiograms. One of our associates is certified in acupuncture, allowing us to add this service to our patients. Our doctors perform a variety of soft tissue surgeries and dentistry and for more complicated cases and orthopedic procedures we are fortunate to have boarded surgeons nearby that we can refer to.
Most importantly, we have an amazing support staff who are crucial to the success of patient and client care. Every doctor has 1-2 technicians each day to assist them with appointments or in surgery. To round out the group, our practice manager, Sarah, keeps us all on track and the practice running smoothly. We have a family dynamic and very little turnover, with most of our team having worked here for 15+ years. We prioritize work/life balance and always do our best to accommodate requests for time off. Our team enjoys having fun at work by having potlucks, Socko de Mayo (yes, we gave each other themed socks!), Secret Santa, and holiday parties. We also enjoy spending time together outside of work, camping, taking group trips to the zoo and bowling alley, and even vacationing together at Disneyworld!
Our practice is open Monday and Friday, 8 am to 7 pm, Tuesday through Thursday, 8 am to 6 pm, and Saturday, 8 am to 1 pm. We schedule appointments from 9 am - 12 pm and 2 pm – 5/5:30 pm. The two-hour break allows for lunch and any client communication time needed. We can accommodate a part-time or full-time (30+ hours/week) schedule. There are no on-call responsibilities since we have several referral/emergency locations close by. You can learn more about our amazing practice at bestfriendsgrayslakevets.com.
