You will enjoy working in our beautiful, 3-year-old, well-equipped facility which is located just a few miles from the Mississippi Gulf Coast beaches. We are far enough away to be safe from storm surge but close enough to enjoy all the things a coastal community offers. Boating, fishing, seafood and beautiful sand beaches on our barrier islands are just a few local offerings. All of us here on the MS Gulf Coast know we are a well-kept secret. While we recognize our state’s shortcomings, we also know our area has many neighborhoods which are excellent places to raise a family; provide reasonable housing costs and contain exceptional public schools.
Our practice provides a bond-centered environment that is exciting and professionally challenging while still maintaining our focus on client and patient service. Through the use of ultrasound, digital radiology, in-house lab work, multi-modal anesthetic monitors, Class IV therapeutic laser, and numerous other tools, we provide exceptional care for patients and great service for clients. Additionally, staff is fully trained as Fear Free. We have an attached pet lodge that not only provides our boarding patients a comfortable, roomy stay but also provides all of us with an additional referral base. We have an active online presence utilizing both our website and our Facebook page. Our compensation package is competitive and we work hard to balance a work/play schedule. We are open to the full range of experience levels from new grads to docs with years of experience. We fully expect to provide mentoring to more recent veterinary graduates.
