Would you like to work for a fun and progressive veterinarian practice with strong Midwestern values? Welcome to Elk Creek Animal Hospital, with locations in both Sioux City, Iowa and Vermillion, South Dakota. We are a family-owned and operated practice with two doctors currently on staff and plans to hire two more. New graduates are encouraged to apply—our clinic is committed to providing strong mentorship and growth opportunities! Experience in special interests such as exotics or behavior are encouraged but not required, and for those interested, there is opportunity to pursue these special interests in practice and continuing education. Our clinic strives to practice a healthy work /life balance with split on-call and weekend responsibilities (one or two Saturdays a month). Doctor salaries are based on experience and skill set. All new veterinarians begin with 80 hours of paid vacation time. We offer a continuing education stipend; cover licensing fees, dues and the costs of VIN and AVMA memberships; and provide scrubs. We offer retirement, dental, vision and health benefits. We are proud to be a high-tech clinic that uses cloud-based software and electronic records. We have digital radiographs that are state of the art as well as digital dental radiographs. We have an ultrasound, a surgical laser, therapeutic laser, in-house blood work machines urinalysis and sediment as well as fecal analyzer, computers and phones in all exam rooms and orthopedic equipment. We provide 3-5 employees per veterinarian so our vets can diagnose and treat and leave the rest for the staff. We are also excited to begin construction on a new building in our Sioux City location. We think of our clinics as a big family and work hard to create a culture that is positive, team-centered, and a respectful learning environment. We look forward to meeting with those interested in joining our Elk Creek family, a clinic where we sincerely enjoy practicing veterinary medicine!
