Do you wish you worked in a collaborative team environment that doesn’t just say they practice high quality medicine, but actually does?  Then look no further.  Sugar River Animal Hospital is looking for a full or part time veterinarian for our AAHA accredited, Cat Friendly small animal practice located in Grantham, NH.  We have a modern facility that is paper lite with all the bells and whistles such as a digital x-ray, dental x-ray, full surgery suite, therapy laser, full suite of Idexx blood and urine machines to name just a few of the items available to you.  We also have a well-trained staff to assist you as well.

Work-life balance is important to us.  Enjoy a four-day work week and work only 1-2 Saturday mornings per month. There are no afterhours emergencies.

It is also very important to us that we find someone who is seeking long term employment. We believe it is important for us to have consistency and stability within our work family since it helps us to run better as a team, and it helps provide consistency in the care that we provide to our clients and patients.  The job hiring process is not fun for us and we want someone who wants to be part of our team and continue to help grow the practice.  We had over 30% growth last year and don’t anticipate our growth slowing down any time soon.

We are open to hiring a new graduate who is confident and willing to do surgery.  Our owner had poor mentorship at her first job and will make sure that doesn’t happen to any new graduate that we hire.  A new graduate doesn’t have to know everything, but be willing to learn and be open to trying new things with support and guidance.

Job Requirements:

  • Graduated or graduating from a DVM or equivalent program
  • Able to obtain a NH veterinary license and DEA license
  • Be able to support our mission of treating our clients and their pets like family.
  • Excellent communication skills.  It is vital that you can communicate with the staff as well as clients.
  • Confidence in your abilities (Even if you’re new to veterinary medicine.  We learn things every day.)
  • Work ethic
  • Compassion and kindness
  • Be available to clients during working hours.
  • Sense of humor.
  • Respect for other people.
