He founded our hospital on the principles of warmth, friendliness, and family, which we continue to promote today. We have a talented, well-trained team that is prepared to provide a wide range of services. We offer everything from routine check-ups to dermatology, dentistry, acupuncture, critical care, and homeopathic medicine. Additionally, we have positive, longterm relationships with relief doctors in the area, including Dr. Stephanie Sur, so you can confidently take time away knowing your patients are being treated by a familiar face.

We’re searching for a veterinarian who is confidently experienced in surgery and anesthesia. Aside from supporting your professional growth and providing opportunities to collaborate with Dr. Shaw, we also encourage lifelong learning through:
$2,500 annual CE allowance (with paid days to attend)
Guidance from a talented Medical Advisory Board
Structured mentorship program (for early career doctors or those interested in serving as a mentor)

Treat yourself to an easier way of life and make a city full of sunshine and outdoor recreation your new home:
Dip a paddle into the crystal-clear waters of the Deschutes River. Lace up your snowshoes and plunge into the frosty unknown. Spoil yourself at an award-winning restaurant or local spa. Trek along the legendary Bend Ale Trail (the largest beer trail in the West). Tour the caves in Bend’s ancient lava tubes. When you’re here, you’ll quickly discover why Bend is world-famous for its outdoor lifestyle and pristine beauty. With great weather and vast year-round opportunities at your fingertips, in Bend, it’s easy to find a new adventure.
