About Adamson Veterinary Services and the Urgent and Emergency Care Center
We are a progressive, growing, multi-doctor practice that believes in using education, skills, and modern technology to provide quality medicine for our patients while tailoring it to the client's needs and income. As a busy practice (day-practice and after hour urgent and emergency care practice) we provide medical care that combines general practice, urgent and emergency care. We don’t just provide routine care, but more advance care as well. We are a new type of hybrid practice that provide routine services and sick/urgent care services that fall between a general practice and a specialty practice. In our hospital there are two different practices. There is the day time General Practice that is open 7 days a week that opens at 7:30 am and closes at 5pm weekdays and opens at 8:00 am and closed at 4pm on weekends. Then there is the an after hour Urgent and Emergeny Care service, with emphasis on Urgent, that opens when the General Practice closes and is open only 5 days a week (Friday - Tuesday) until midnight. Work schedules are as flexible as possible to cover both shifts and avoid burn out. Family time is encouraged and vacations are manditory. Salaries are based on shif...t hired for (day shift or night shift) and whether you want full time or part time. We try to be fair when it comes to the salaries and are willing to negotiate. The hospital is a large modern and fully equipped 9,000 sq ft medical facility that was designed to create a calm and fear free environment (a virtual tour is available on our website AdamsonVeterinaryServices.com). We are AAHA certified and have a full in-house lab, ultrasound, dental machines, digital x-ray machine electro-cautery unit, 2 large surgery suites, multiple full parameter monitors and anesthesia machines, isolation room, portable oxygen cage, Snyder ICU machine, 2 ICU isolettes, with facility to house up to 34 patients. We have a large waiting room split into two sections to divide dogs and cats. The day general practice is open 7 days a week and the urgent care is open 5 days a week with the plan on eventually being open 7 days a week if we are able to hire the doctors and staff to support it. We do not have boarding facilities, the owner does not believe in housing sick or surgery patients and well patients together.
