Associate Veterinarian

Privately-owned practice seeks to expand work family

Crosslake is a charming up north town, nuzzled against the shoreline of the Whitefish Chain of Lakes.  Our community is a mixture of year-round and seasonal inhabitants that range from young families to retirees.  Each year our work family grows as we add more who love what Crosslake has to offer: gorgeous sunsets on the lake, get-togethers around the bonfire, fishing opportunities galore, wooded trails with your four-legged friends, and the sun glistening off the snow-covered Norway pines.

Crosslake Veterinary Hospital is a companion animal practice focused on being a strength to the community.  A brand new expansive facility with advanced medical equipment allows us the tools to provide gold-standard care, but it is our patient care, thorough character and attention to managing the whole picture that sets us apart.   We utilize our strengths to work together on complex cases, and because patient care comes first, we take the time to provide the mentorship one may need to become more proficient.  Our clientele provides us with the opportunity to maximize the use of our equipment, and our ability to work as a cohesive team allows us to diagnose and treat a wide array of conditions.

Doctors bring unique strengths to each practice, and we desire to help you practice medicine the way you want, to provide the work-life balance to suit you best.  We can provide:

  • 30-45 minute appointment times to allow thorough care and communication, new graduates needing longer appointment times are easily accommodated
  • Opportunity throughout each day to discuss cases with experienced doctors
  • Weekly doctor meetings to strengthen protocols and confer on patient care
  • Experienced technicians to complete treatment plans and communicate with clients
  • Flexible schedule to provide varying opportunities between appointments, surgeries, dental procedures and urgent care
  • Assistance with medical transcription throughout the working day and access to remote practice management software from home
  • Focus on continuing education to ensure the time to develop your interests

To help you meet your best, Crosslake Veterinary Hospital has 5 exam rooms, separate feline and canine hospitalization wards, 3-table treatment space, double surgery suite, double dental suite and a dedicated isolation room.  Our equipment consists of in-house IDEXX lab equipment complete with urine sediment analysis and coagulation profiles, full body digital radiography, digital dental radiography, GE ultrasound with color flow, sevoflurane gas anesthesia, full anesthesia monitoring equipment, multiple IV pumps and a new syringe pump for constant rate infusions.  We have a brand new spacious employee break room and our associates have a dedicated office space away from the main workflow.

Starting work schedule would be four days per week and one 4-hour Saturday per month.  Benefits package includes group medical and dental insurance with company coverage of 75% of premiums, paid time off and holiday pay, generous continuing education pay and additional time off, paid VIN membership, paid state and DEA licensing, paid membership to AVMA and MVMA plus one other organization of your choice, matching IRA, employee discounts and access to supplemental insurance.  Compensation package ranges from $85,000 to $100,000 with opportunity for further growth.

Our opportunity is ideal for one who wants to practice a high standard of veterinary medicine, wants dedicated mentorship and long-term opportunity for collaboration, flourishes with delegation to team members, and wants to truly be part of a work family that strengthens the community.
