Appalachian Animal Health Center is seeking an associate veterinarian for their progressive, small animal practice in Southwestern Virginia. Located in the town of Grundy, our practice is nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. The pace of life is slower here, and the rural setting is great for family life. At AAHC, we practice high quality medicine with a focus on compassionate care and client communication.

We offer digital radiology, Midmark dentistry unit with Canis Major wet table, 4 exam rooms, dual surgery suite, paperless medical records with Impromed Infinity software, an ICU with fluid pumps and Cardell monitoring equipment, 4 anesthesia machines, central scavenging, advanced ophthalmology equipment including Tonovet and Panoptic, video otoscopy, and much more. We do not yet have ultrasound, but hope to soon. We have a dedicated, enthusiastic support staff of one office manager, one receptionist, and four assistants. Two assistants are expected to complete Veterinary Technician training programs very soon.

We hope to become AAHA accredited in the future. Practice has been open two years, and is rapidly growing. Caseload is very heavy with a broad variety of interesting cases. Currently we see only small animals, but current veterinarian has an interest in eventually serving large animal clients.

Hours for an associate veterinarian are flexible, and can be tailored to provide excellent quality of life. Emergency services are not currently offered, but with the addition of an associate, we hope to be able to better serve our clients after hours by dividing emergency duty between two doctors. Our small town is also growing with the addition of the Appalachian School of Law, Appalachian College of Pharmacy, and an upcoming school of optometry. Jobs for spouses are becoming plentiful.
