Elizabethville Veterinary Hospital is looking for a veterinarian who will become a member of our animal health care team. Our mission is to provide complete life span care for domestic mammals while educating their owners in their proper care and management. We also have a strong interest in safe guarding the public health of our area. The species we treat most often are dogs, cats, horses and cattle while seeing an increasing number of sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas and some deer. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone with an interest in small ruminants. At this time we do not see or treat exotic animals, however if someone is very competent in treating these species, this would be an area that could be incorporated into our practice.
We would prefer to hire for a full-time position but a part-time option could be considered for the appropriate candidate. We would consider applicants who wish to treat only small animals.
We have a well-designed hospital with three exam rooms, waiting room with client restroom, reception area, employee lounge with employee restroom, pharmacy, lab, treatment room, radiology suite, sterile surgery room with kennels all on the main floor. The full basement houses laundry, deep isolation, full bath with shower, garage bay for practice vehicle and offices. Our equipment includes but is not limited to: digital radiology (just updated), digital ultra sound, complete Idexx lab equipment (with QBC, Chem 17, electrolytes, T4, phenobarbital level, etc.), dental suite, laser therapy, anesthetic machines, Tonopen and more. Our practice vehicle has a refrigerator, complete set of dental floats and portable ultrasound along with all the necessary equipment to take care of farm animals.
Our employees are very experienced and dedicated. They have been with us a long time. Our licensed veterinary technician has been with us close to 30 years!
We have an on-line pharmacy and participate in the Hills to Home program for home delivery of prescription diets. A popular ancillary service we offer is our Wednesday evening Puppy and Dog Training Classes taught by two of our very experienced employees.
Elizabethville is a small town located about 25 miles north of Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania. This area of Central Pennsylvania has the rolling hills and mountains of the Appalachian Mountains. The Appalachian Trail is only 12 miles south of us! Elizabethville offers a rural life style with a metropolitan area only a short drive away. A little further drive will take one to Lancaster, York and Gettysburg. Philadelphia and Baltimore are two hours away while New York City and Washington, DC are three hours away.
