Full-Time Mixed Animal Veterinarian - Miles City

There is an opening currently available for a full-time mixed animal veterinarian in Miles City, MT.  The practice is 50% food animal, 40% small animal and 10% equine.  Currently there are 3 full-time and one part-time veterinarians.  The part-time veterinarian is leaving this summer.

Our large animal practice is based on cow-calf production and includes three counties in eastern MT.  A clinic vehicle, Silencer chute, Ibex ultrasound, and Pulsator IV ejaculators are available for herd work.  The majority of individual animal assessments including obstetrical procedures are brought into the clinic.  The local salebarn is also served here, as are a number of smaller backgrounding lots (500-4000 head).

The small animal portion includes gas anesthesia, in-house CBC and chemistry units, digital radiography, ultrasonic scaler and Dentalaire cart for dental procedures.  We do soft tissue surgery and some basic orthopedic procedures including lateral suture repair for cruciate tears and also bone pinning and plating.  There is also a small amount of small animal boarding.

Equine services include routine and cryptorchid castrations, umbilical hernia repair, teeth floating, basic lameness exams and basic reproductive services.   Surgical colic cases are referred to Billings, which is about two hours away.

All areas of practice are active but open to expansion of services.  

Clinic hours are 9:00 am to 5:30 pm (closed over the noon hour) daily M-F and Saturday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.  On-call hours are currently split between three veterinarians, with the on-call vet working the Saturday hours.

Salary is negotiable.  Liability insurance paid.  Two weeks paid vacation.  State VMA dues, AVMA dues and one professional membership paid.  Also, the clinic will pay for CE registration fees and lodging for meetings.

Miles City is a community of approximately 8,500 people and is an economic and social hub of eastern MT.  There are plenty of local groups to be involved in, whether music, theater, athletics or western heritage.  Hunting and fishing opportunities are present here in Custer County.  For those who enjoy mountain activities such as skiing, hiking or fly fishing, the mountains of MT are about a three-hour drive.

New graduates are certainly welcome to apply.  We are looking for a versatile person who is open to exploring their own pursuits in a general small-town veterinary practice.
