At Galax Veterinary Clinic, we are looking for someone eager to create their perfect associate veterinarian position. We are a mixed animal practice located in Galax, Virginia, right in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Since opening in 1966, we have built ourselves upon the philosophies of family and community focus as well as the desire to be seen as part of a patient’s family rather than an extension of the internet or big-name corporations. We have a second location exactly 30 miles away in Mounty Airy, North Carolina, both renovated within the last 15 years. The areas we practice in offer compassionate and diverse patients and clientele, some offering “tips” consisting of farm fresh eggs or veggies and that ensure no two days are the same.
Our 5 doctors are supported by a tremendous 22-member support staff. Of these are 3 licensed veterinary technicians well-versed in surgical induction/monitoring, IV and urinary catheterization, wound care, and more. Our assistants are great with restraint and assisting in client education in exam rooms or on farm calls. Together we offer cutting-edge medicine and medical/surgical services for:
Food Animal services and Basic Exotic Care / Wildlife Rehabilitation
Ideally, we are looking for a mixed animal practitioner, but our workload would allow for specialization. Due to our large animal case load, we do offer emergency services. However, we are willing to negotiate on emergency call as we do have ER clinics within driving distance that we utilize. We do have a specialty clinic and the VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine within reasonable driving distance for case referrals as well.
Outdoor activities abound as we are located near the New River, Blue Ridge Parkway, and several VA state parks. Our Galax office is located at the start of the 57-mile new river trail! Schools are excellent along with art galleries, museums, theaters, and other cultural opportunities.
At Galax Veterinary Clinic, our mission is to improve the lives of veterinarians by providing you with comprehensive benefits:
Generous compensation package

Customized mentorship program
Generous paid time off
Medical, dental, vision, life, short-term, and long-term disability insurance
