What is your passion? Ours is top level medicine and meaningful relationships with our clients, and a work environment that nurtures every team member's individual success. We have spent years building a team and work culture based around the values we want OVG to embody: passionate, fun, collaborative, respectful, and genuine. From our customer service representatives up front, to our doctors, technicians, and support staff in the back, every member of our team exemplifies these values every day at work. If these are values that you want to see in your workplace culture, then our full-time veterinarian position could be a great fit for you!
Oakdale is a wonderful community to call home! Think of Oakdale as the epicenter of all things quintessential California; we are just 2 hours from San Francisco, Napa, Santa Cruz, and Sacramento, and less than 2 hours outside of stunning Yosemite Valley. Situated against the Sierra Nevada foothills, Oakdale offers classic California beauty with a low cost of living and close proximity to skiing, beach days, wine tasting, and big city excursions.
Our hospital boasts the top reviews in the Central Valley of any small animal pet hospital on Yelp, Google, and Facebook. We take pride in offering gold standard medicine and customer service to every client and their pets. As we look to add a third doctor to our team, we want someone who values forming relationships with clients and is looking to form long term bonds in the community.
In an industry that is being taken over by corporate conglomerates, we are proud to be a family-owned, veterinary-led hospital. We have a passion for top medicine and are always striving to be progressive in what we can offer our clients. Our equipment includes digital radiographs, dental radiographs, ultrasound, Ligasure, Game Ready, shock wave therapy, and much more. Our average weekly case load is surgery heavy including multiple orthopedic procedures and advanced soft tissue procedures.
We are looking for a doctor who is comfortable with basic surgical procedures. Interested in more than just the basics? Dr. Ned would love to share his surgical knowledge with you!
