VCA Animal Hospitals Urgent Care Veterinarian - Keizer, OR in Keizer, Oregon

VCA River Road Animal Hospital is seeking an Urgent Care Veterinarian to complement our talented team in Keizer, Oregon.

Do you have at least two years of practice experience and are looking for a change in your daily routine? A more diverse caseload? An opportunity to provide great care without the challenges of ongoing case management? We may be looking just for you!

VCA River Road Animal Hospital is an Urgent Care facility and serves the greater central Willamette Valley. Our location features an incredibly charming lobby, four exam rooms, an expansive treatment area with two wet tables, in-house lab, and additional exam table space, as well as several workstations. Other amenities include a surgery suite, dentistry suite, digital imaging, ultrasound, surgical laser, therapeutic laser, and everything else you’ll need to provide the highest level of patient care.

Flexible scheduling, work-life balance, and mentorship set us apart from other opportunities and we’re looking for a veterinarian who values those as well. We offer relocation allowance, and a competitive salary. This position would be scheduled for M-Tu-W 8a-6p, but could also be looked at for a 4-day position and applicable salary if desired. Urgent Care is a growing need and this facility provides an opportunity for patients to receive care when their regular veterinarian is unable to do so. With a target of M-F operations, other veterinarians are also part of this team and the stable support staff, including one CVT, help provide a family feeling of service.

Keizer is located next to Salem, Oregon’s State Capital; in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Enjoy the close proximity to the rugged Pacific Coastline, the Cascade Mountain Range, and a desert ecosystem for all of your outdoor adventures. Keizer and Salem are surrounded by charming small towns with rich agricultural history and just an hour south of the big city attraction of Portland.
