We are seeking a full-time equine ambulatory practitioner for a well-established, privately owned equine hospital. We are located in beautiful rural horse country but are less than 80 miles from exciting midtown Manhattan. Applicant must be experienced, motivated, and have an excellent customer service mentality and good communication skills. We seek an individual with a forward-thinking and positive attitude that can function well as a part of our close-knit team. Our facility offers complete support staff, surgical suite, 13 stall barn with climate controlled evaluation areas and state of the art equipment including multiple digital radiography units, dynamic endoscopy, ultrasonography, video endoscopy, laser therapy, in house laboratory equipment and up-to-date sports medicine and regenerative therapies. We are a progressive practice with opportunities for future growth for the right candidate. Mentoring opportunities are available as there is an experienced well-known board certified equine surgeon at the practice. In addition, there are 3 other experienced veterinarians. We have an established internship program and will be accepting 2 interns this year.
Although there is a complete, well -appointed and staffed hospital, the practice is primarily an ambulatory practice. Surgeries are almost all elective. Reproductive work is a prominent part of the practice. We currently perform semen freezing, embryo transfer flushes, hysteroscopy, oviductal hydrotubation, oocyte aspiration, as well as more routine work with stallion collection, artificial insemination and mare and stallion reproductive examinations.
Forty percent of our caseload is Standardbreds, both racehorses in training and breeding stock. Additionally, we see a wide variety of sport horses including hunter/jumper, dressage, and Western performance horses. Cases regularly involve all age groups, from foals to geriatrics. Clients are varied and include pet horse farms as well as large show horse barns, western performance barns, commercial breeding farms, local resorts and racetrack work. We are a growing practice that encourages our veterinarians to pursue their areas of interest and specialties. Our diverse and expanding client list makes this possible along with encouragement and support from the practice management.
Pine Bush Equine Services schedules appointments Monday-Friday. We provide 24-hour emergency coverage for our clients however all night-time emergency surgery is referred to a local surgical center. On call duty for our full-time practitioners is generally limited to 5 days a month. This may increase slightly in July and August when the interns are new to the practice.
We offer a starting salary commensurate with experience. For recent graduates a salary of $65,000-$68,000 is offered with incentives based on production. For veterinarians with experience we offer a base salary of $75,000-$85,000 again with incentives based on production. A $5000 signing bonus is being offered.
