The Switzer Veterinary Clinic is looking to hire a new graduate or experienced veterinarian for a full time small animal only or mixed animal position. Our mixed animal practice (90% small) offers high quality care in a relaxed, friendly, small town setting.
We’re AAHA accredited! We strive to provide cutting edge care and have some of the bells and whistles of larger hospitals including a full in-house IDEXX lab, surgical monitoring, digital radiographs, dental radiographs and ultrasound. Our team performs TTAs for cruciate tears, restorations for non-complicated dental fractures, diamond burrs for corneal ulcers.
Our three veterinarians and three nurses have more than 50 years combined experience and a wide range of interests. We love to mentor, work well together and want you to continue learning to succeed professionally!
We have a flexible schedule and rotate emergency call between other local clinics. Each doctor is on call one weekday evening and one weekend every other month. Our current schedule includes four day work weeks and two 5 day blocks off every month (12 days off total)!
We live where your friends vacation! Alpena is a great place to live situated off of the Thunder Bay along the shore of Lake Huron. There’s plenty of opportunities for biking, sailing, kite surfing, cross country skiing, horse back riding, snowmobiling and trail running. We have a great school system, a community college and a regional medical center…there’s even a touch of culture and shopping.
