Dearborn Animal Hospital, Decatur GA – Is looking for a full time associate veterinarian. We are a busy multi doctor, AAHA accredited small animal practice with emphasis on doctor/ client relationships. We are celebrating 75 years of being a privately, locally owned and operated hospital with a commitment to remain an independently owned hospital. The teamwork and mutual support among our doctors is extraordinary.
We are looking for a doctor that enjoys a friendly and collegial environment, hands on medicine, and the ability to build great relationships with our clients. We have a very diverse clientele, so the ability to assess a situation and develop treatment plans based on the client is very important. .
We offer a mentorship program and our associates develop great surgical and diagnostic skills. Our hospital is equipped with digital dental and full body x-ray, ultrasound, Surgivet and Doppler monitors, IV pumps, Tono-pen and in-house lab equipment (CBC, blood chemistry, urinalysis, cortisol, T4) as well as other diagnostic equipment.
Expected Schedule is 4 days per week with one or two half day Saturdays per month, about 34 hours on average. We have scheduled blocks for phone calls/catchup, so you can leave on time. We love families with kids and will accommodate in every way we can: we are really good at flexibility. Each Dr. has a scheduled surgical day and appointments on the other 3 days. If you are interested in surgery and dentistry – we love that! If not we will adapt a schedule to fit.
Benefits include health insurance, vision and dental programs, IRA with matching contributions, all professional licenses including DEA and professional memberships paid, CE budget and 3 weeks of PTO, discounted pet care and free boarding. Salary range will depend on experience and can be either straight salary (especially for new grads) or salary with production bonus.
All levels of experience welcome: if you are a new graduate or have years in practice, please look at this opportunity and come for a tour of the hospital. If you are looking for a hospital that has growth opportunities, for the right person this could be a path to ownership.

We’re UGA Vet Med, and our

passion powers our commitment.
