Associate Veterinarian

South Shore Veterinary Hospital

Wileville, Nova Scotia

South Shore Veterinary Hospital is a mixed practice located in the beautiful community of Bridgewater, in a very picturesque area of Nova Scotia that is not far from lovely beaches and small cottage communities, but also only 1 hour outside of Halifax.

South Shore is a busy practice with a well trained and engaged support staff team committed to educating our clients on how to keep their pets healthy year round. South Shore Veterinary Hospital stays on top of the latest advances in veterinary technology and above all, remembers that all animals and pets need to be treated with loving care. The facility is community focused on helping rescues, and fully equipped with ultrasound, endoscope, mobile X-ray and Digital dental X-ray. We also offer chiropractic care and acupuncture.

Our team of experienced veterinarians, along with our excellent support staff, care for guinea pigs to iguanas, horses to llamas, cats to dogs, rabbits and everything in between!

We are currently looking for a small animal Associate Veterinarian to join our growing team. Even though we are a mixed practice, this role will not be focusing on large animals. However, an interest in mixed practice would be a bonus. Newly graduates are welcome to apply, as they will benefit from great resources for mentorship.

Since we are blessed with a large team, our ideal candidate should be flexible with scheduling.
