Job ID: 124569067
I am working to find a new associate veterinarian for our fast-paced, AAHA accredited veterinary hospital located on the corner of Topanga Canyon and Ventura Blvd in Woodland Hills. This is a full-time opportunity to replace a DVM that is moving out of state. The position opens mid-August.
Southern California Veterinary hospital (SCVH) is a thriving facility with 4 DVMs, 3 (soon to be 4) RVTs, and an additional team of well-experienced support staff. Our staff is dedicated, long term, and have grown in our family business environment. Our practice philosophy has three basic tenets: doing what’s best for the pet, solving problems, and creating the best experience possible for the client. Our operations emphasize efficiency to ensure that veterinarians have the time to spend with clients, diagnose conditions, and develop treatment plans. Everything else is handled by staff including all discussion of payments, all sampling, all diagnostic testing, and all treatments. It is truly turnkey. While we all work hard, we still prioritize maintaining a collegial and fun environment.
Ideally, the schedule will be Thursday through Sunday. We are open 7 days/week. While this is negotiable, working at least one weekend day is required.
The position requires a veterinarian to possess high acumen plus self-confidence and provide high quality patient care, high level diagnostics, and excellent client communication to develop long term client relationships. Continuous personal growth and a willingness to engage in an environment of continuous learners is essential. We will only consider candidates licensed to practice in California with a minimum of 2-years’ experience and or a qualified internship. An interest in soft tissue surgery is preferred but not required as is a solid background in dermatology and internal medicine.
In support of our goal to provide the best possible care at SCVH, we have digital radiology (all surveys are sent to board certified radiologist for review), ultrasound, video otoscopy, rhinoscopy, and a complete dental suite, including dental digital radiology. We do almost all soft tissue surgeries, as well as some orthopedics. In addition, we are one block from VCA Veterinary Specialist of the Valley with whom we have established a working partnership for mutual referrals.
All veterinarians are paid salary based on projected yearly production rather than base + percentage to encourage camaraderie over competition. Projected annual salary is between $110-122K based on production for $550-$610K for the first year. Projection is based on track record, experience, and discussion. Extra days worked over and above scheduled days are compensated at $675.00 per day in addition to salary. Therefore, total yearly compensation is often greater than the salary. Our team of veterinarians produce over $700K annually, there is ample opportunity for growth. Pay is adjusted yearly based on 20% of the previous year’s production. Benefits include 50% of health insurance, partial payment of dental insurance, and the availability of Aflac supplemental insurance. We provide a corporate American Express Card to pay for fuel up to $200 per month, cell phone up to $100 per month, and ancillary business-related expenses such as uniforms (3 will be provided), licenses (California VMB and DEA), and dues (AAHA, AVMA, CVMA, SCVMA). We offer 3 weeks’ worth of time off per year.
We are a professionally managed, family owned business. We provide great mentorship with a focus on academics and a great working environment, emphasizing family. More information can be found at www.socalvet.com. I encourage you to contact me to discuss more about the position and the hospital, it is truly a great place to work. Please send over a cover letter and CV/resume .
This is a confidential search. Interviews will be ongoing through mid-July. The interview process may include a trial day that will be compensated $675 for the 8-hour shift.
If you are looking for an opportunity to leverage your training in a practice that values effective, complete care, please reach out to me. I look forward to speaking.
