Gulf Coast Veterinary Emergency Hospital located in Biloxi, MS
is growing! We currently have an immediate need for experienced full-time, part-time and regular relief veterinarians to join our progressive hospital team! The hospital is currently owned and operated by Drs. Jeff and Jennifer Sutton. Jeff is a 1999 graduate of Ross University who spent his clinical year at LSU SVM. Jennifer is a member of the LSU SVM Class of 1998.
While experience in critical and emergency case management is helpful; confidence and experience in a progressive small animal practice will be equally considered. Many of the cases seen at GCVEH are similar to presenting “urgent care” cases in general practice. Critical care case management can be mentored, there is opportunity to consult with radiologists, cardiologists and other specialists regarding specific cases, and on-call support by experienced clinicians is available.
