Associate Veterinarian wanted in Smithfield, VA


More Information

The Oaks Equine and Farm Services, a thriving large animal practice (primarily equine) in beautiful southeast Virginia, is looking to hire our next associate veterinarian. Our multi-doctor practice prides itself in being family friendly and respecting your time off.

Our doctors enjoy collaborating on cases and using their individual strengths to best serve our patients. New graduates are welcome to apply and will be provided with direct mentorship to get them started off on the right foot in equine practice.

We encourage our doctors to develop their own special interests. We currently have multiple doctors trained in chiropractic care and acupuncture with a constantly growing integrative medicine caseload.

Our typical work schedule is 4 days a week, however we are open to discussing alternative schedules and positions other than full-time. Emergency coverage is shared.

While the majority of our emergency calls are for horses, our veterinarians are expected to also see production animal patients on emergency (primarily beef cattle and small ruminents). We are happy to mentor veterinarians who have limited food animal experience.

Our practice is located in Smithfield, VA, a small town with immense southern charm. You’ll find beautiful walking and biking trails, a quaint historic downtown, and fun events like farmer’s markets and wine fests. We are close to Virginia Beach and the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Please submit a cover letter and resume to The Oaks or if you have any questions regarding the position please contact Dr. Garrett Edwards at 757-377-6572.
