Northwood Animal Hospital/ PETS Emergency

We are looking for an experienced veterinarian who strives to practice high quality small animal emergency medicine. In business since 1973, Northwood caters to the veterinary needs of dogs, cats and various avian and exotic species. We are a 40 year AAHA-accredited 24 hour emergency hospital in addition to being a traditional small animal clinic, with overnight hours staffed by dedicated emergency technicians and veterinarians. Our goal is to provide high quality veterinary care for pets while educating clients. We have 2 ER doctors that rotate through overnights (5pm-7am), 3 consecutive night shifts then 4 nights off (total 42 hours per week).

Tallahassee is the capital of Florida and is home of the Florida State Seminoles. We are 45 minutes from the Gulf coast with a climate well suited for a variety of outdoor activities. Our sister clinic (The Animal Hospital and Pet Resort at Southwood) provides resort-style boarding. Northwood Animal Hospital has 6 full time “day” doctors seeing appointments, performing routine surgeries and dentals, seeing walk-ins, as well as rotating through emergency duty on weekends and holiday days. Southwood doctors contribute to emergency coverage as well.

We have diagnostic and treatment capabilities to manage serious medical and surgical problems. We perform advanced soft tissue and orthopedic surgery on small animals and exotics. Equipment includes Cornerstone paperless record keeping system; Sedecal digital x-ray machine; ultrasonic dental unit with high speed hand piece; digital dental x-ray; Companion Therapy Laser; Philips ultrasound machine; PC-Vet Chek ECG; in-house laboratory including Abaxis clotting panel, Idexx Procyte Dx and Catalyst Dx, VetScan iStat; Cardell and Vetspecs anesthetic monitoring; Heska IV pumps; an Ellman Cautery unit and an Airnetics Oxygen Generator.

We are the drop-off point and provide emergent care to wild animals for St. Francis Wildlife, a local wildlife rehabilitation group. We have established CARE (Companion Animal Rescue Endeavor), a 501C3 set up to allow us to provide medical and surgical care to relinquished, stray or orphaned companion animals that we feel can be rehabilitated and re-homed.

Salary will be on a ProSal basis, with benefits including 401K with matching funds, continuing education allowance, liability insurance, vacation time, dental and vision insurance, health insurance allowance, and optional gym membership.
