Sylva Animal Hospital, a small animal hospital located in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, is looking for a dynamic full or part time veterinarian. Responsibilities would include medical and surgical duties routinely seen in a general practice. There are no emergency or after hours calls but scheduling would include a rotating Saturday schedule. The benefits we offer are contributions to a Simple IRA and paid dues for NCVMB, NC privilege license, AVMA, PLIT, and DEA. We provide a continuing education allowance, paid vacation and sick leave. There is the potential for a buy in at some point in the future.
Sylva Animal Hospital is an independently owned, multi doctor hospital that places emphasis on quality patient care at an affordable price. Because of that, we have a large and loyal client base. The practice was established in 1989 and moved into a newly constructed building in 2015. We have digital radiology, Idexx laboratory, and Avimark practice software. We also have the support of several emergency and specialty hospitals in the area.

There is white water rafting, kayaking, canoeing and boating on several nearby lakes and rivers. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is close by and there is plenty to do in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville, TN. Asheville offers the Biltmore Estate, microbreweries, shopping and entertainment. WCU is in neighboring Cullowhee and offers a multitude of educational opportunities and cultural events.
