Fantastic opportunity to work in an award-winning, AAHA-accredited small animal practice with a family-feel in the exciting Orlando area!
Take your career to the next level! Amazing opportunity for an experienced veterinarian to shine. WVC is currently a single doctor practice looking to grow and create a lasting impression on the Orlando community! Equipped with digital radiography (including handheld dental radiography), full IDEXX in-clinic laboratory, companion therapeutic laser therapy, well-stocked pharmacy, a beautiful surgical suite and a small, comfortable on property boarding facility. We have also fostered numerous working relationships opening the doors for you to offer your clients endoscopy, ultrasound, behavior consultations, dog training and specialty care with our professional partners.
Enjoy a rewarding work week which includes a full day off and a half day for surgeries, as well as every other weekend off! You will be seeing a mix of general practice appts, urgent care/emergency, and surgeries. All general appointments are scheduled for at least 30-45 minutes, giving you ample time to get to know your patients and their families. Patients will include primarily dogs and cats, but applicant should be comfortable with ferrets, rabbits and rodents as well. Experience and special interest in orthopedics not required but this area could be expanded for the right applicant. We are looking for full-time, long term team members!

Take 1-hour lunch breaks every day to enjoy a meal from any of the local restaurants including Mellow Mushroom, Buffalo Wild Wings, Moe’s Southwestern Grill, or Firehouse Subs (just a few of the many, many options)
Relax in a secluded, peaceful office space which you can make your own personal oasis to recover in on a busy day, away from the medical areas of the clinic.
Work on salary, not commission for the first 12-24 months, then transition into a salaried position with production bonuses. This will allow you to focus on getting to know your new WVC family and clients without any added stress!
