The Veterinary Hospital of Davidson is a rapidly growing, 5-doctor small animal hospital specializing in exceptional patient and client care. What we are known for is integrating natural and holistic medicine in with our traditional medicine, surgery, and dentistry, but what we are most proud of is our exceptional kindness and care to both the animals and the clients. We see 95% dogs and cats and 5% exotics, but we have room to increase our exotics practice.
Each of our current veterinarians has different specialties and interests ranging from acupuncture and herbal medicine, to ultrasonography and echocardiography, PRP, soft tissue surgery, orthopedics, exotic medicine and surgery, dentistry, and oncology. Our integrative services include pet acupuncture, chiropractic and herbal medicine, as well as holistic nutrition, homeopathy, prolotherapy and laser therapy.
Experience with and certification in holistic modalities is a big asset to us but is not necessary to be a successful veterinarian here. First and foremost, we are looking for an experienced diagnostician with the care and concern to get to the bottom of the problem rather than be complacent or send to another practice. Because we often use alternative medicine, we see several second opinions and even sixth opinions. People come here often from several hours away, and we do our best to get to the bottom of the problem. All vets are expected to follow holistic guidelines of careful vaccination, improving immune systems and nutrition, and each vet is free to learn herbal medicine within our practice. We will teach you. It's easy and it works, and even the skeptical vets coming in have fully embraced these options when they get to experience the outcomes for themselves.
Our hospital is now 6,000 sq ft, including a new 3,000 sq ft expansion, and consists of 11 exam rooms, 2 surgery suites, and a dental suite. Available equipment for use includes doppler blood pressure, in-house blood work machines, ultrasound, digital xray, dental xray, Surgivet monitors, Holter monitors, Tonopen, K-laser, surgical CO2 laser. We have it all and we encourage our vets to use it all!
We have a very strong reception and medical team. Each doctor works with 2-3 techs on any given day, and typically has one surgery morning a week and one full day off during the week. We are a Monday-Friday hospital with no weekend or emergency hours, although we often casually check emails on the weekends as a courtesy. The doctor schedule we are looking to fill is MW 7am-5pm, HF 8am-6pm.
We are located just south of downtown Davidson, a beautiful town full of parks, restaurants, pedestrians, and a strong sense of community. Our typical clientele wants the very best for their pets and are motivated to take excellent care of them. We are very lucky!
Candidates must CARE for our patients like their own pets and dedicated to providing excellent customer service to our clients. We are fast paced but have a lot of tech support to help you get through your day. We leave on time the majority of the day and have few days where we are exhausted!
