Family owned. Forward thinking. Fur loving. Life changing.
For 50 years, Lashley Animal Hospital has served the animals of the St. Louis Metropolitan Area through compassionate acute and preventative care of companion animals. Our three doctor team – lead by founder Dr. David Lashley – seeks a full-time veterinarian who is passionate about promoting the health and welfare of dogs and cats and will provide compassionate, loving care to our patients. A veterinarian who believes in client education and community involvement with a desire to both lead and learn is ideal. Annually recognized by the community as the best veterinary practice in the area, our staff is known for providing quality care and building long-lasting client relationships.
Our practice focuses on preventative care through annual examinations and vaccinations, treatment of acute injuries and illness, long-term care plans for chronic injuries and illness, the reduction of pet overpopulation through spay and neuter surgeries, nutrition education, dental care, and much more. Our facility includes in-house digital Radiography, blood/fecal/urine laboratories, cold laser, surgical facilities, and an on-site pharmacy. Specialized services such as ultrasound, oncology, glaucoma treatment, etc. as well as after-hours emergencies are referred to nearby veterinary specialists and emergency care facilities.
Based in the continually growing metro east community of Swansea, we are just a 20 minute commute by car from downtown St. Louis and surrounded by the communities of Alton, Belleville, Collinsville, Fairview Heights, Lebanon, Maryville, Mascoutah, O’Fallon, Scott Air Force Base, and Shiloh to name just a few.
We are eager to continue to grow our staff and offer a competitive base salary, 401K, paid time off, medical benefits, ISVMA and AVMA membership, and paid Illinois and Federal Licensing Fees. More importantly, our existing client base and referral network provide an interesting caseload of dedicated, long-term clientele. While we would prefer someone with one-to-three years of experience, we are open to hiring a recent graduate with a passion for high-quality medical care, long-term client relationships, and a desire to learn and grow long-term with the practice.
Other requirements include:
DVM or pending licensure.
Proven diagnostic skills with the ability to assess and successfully treat symptoms.
Proven general surgical skills. Advanced or specialized surgical skills are a plus.
Ability to comfortably engage with clientele. Fostering a nurturing and ongoing relationship built on trust and confidence of care is of utmost importance.
Willingness to engage in the local community through events, fundraisers, etc. to nurture established connections and build new relationships.
Ability to motivate team members to reach new levels of accomplishment and professional fulfillment and to be a strong, positive role model for all staff
