Need a change? Looking for a cool place to work? Veterinarian wanted in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
Do you dream of practicing high quality, mixed-animal medicine in a facility with access to all the most up to date equipment? Do you long to find a community with good schools and a small-town feel, that can still offer the amenities of upscale dining and shopping? Imagine a clientele with minimal financial constraints, and the willingness to pursue the most advanced diagnostics. Break up the monotony of routine veterinary medicine by caring for top performing equine athletes one minute, followed by an orphaned Reticulated Giraffe, or whelping Corgi the next. Fredericksburg, TX is a quaint town nestled between San Antonio and Austin. It is known for its German heritage and charm, but is also the epicenter of Texas Wine Country, with more 40 wineries and tasting rooms within a 20 min drive. Fredericksburg is a wonderful community to raise a family and put down roots. Clients bring wine as gifts A LOT! It gives you something to look forward to at the end of the day!
