Veterinary Careers in Mount Airy, NC

About the Area

Outdoor activities abound as we are located near the New River, Blue Ridge Parkway, and several NC state parks. Our Galax office is at the start of the 57-mile new river trail! Schools and art galleries, museums, theaters, and other cultural opportunities are excellent. Mount Airy is also the basis for “Mayberry” in the Andy Griffith show. You can still get a haircut at Floyd’s barbershop or ride in the replica of Andy’s squad car!

Associate Veterinarian

At Animal Medical Services, we seek someone who is eager to create the perfect associate veterinarian position. We are a mixed animal practice located in Mount Airy, North Carolina, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Since opening in 1966, we have built ourselves upon the philosophies of family and community focus and the desire to be seen as part of a patient’s family rather than an extension of the internet or big-name corporations. We have a second location precisely 30 miles away in Galax, Virginia, both renovated within the last 15 years. The areas we practice in offer compassionate and diverse patients and clientele, some offering “tips” consisting of farm-fresh eggs or veggies that ensure no two days are the same.

A tremendous 22-member support staff supports our five doctors. Of these are two licensed veterinary technicians well-versed in surgical induction/monitoring, IV and urinary catheterization, wound care, and more. Our assistants are great with restraint and assisting in client education in exam rooms or on farm calls. Together, we offer cutting-edge medicine and medical/surgical services for:

  • Small Animals
    • Onsite Idexx lab
    • Ultrasound
    • Digital radiography
    • Tonometry
    • Advanced Surgical Capability (Orthopedics, cruciate repair, etc.)
    • Electrocautery
    • Cold Laser Therapy
  • Equine
    • Portable radiography and ultrasound
    • Power equine dentistry
  • Food Animal services and Basic Exotic Care / Wildlife Rehabilitation

Ideally, we are looking for a mixed animal practitioner, but our workload would allow for specialization. Due to our large animal caseload, we do offer emergency services. However, we are willing to negotiate on emergency calls as we utilize ER clinics within driving distance. We also have a specialty clinic and the VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine within reasonable driving distance for case referrals.

  • Generous compensation package
  • Flexible schedules
  • Career path opportunities
  • Customized mentorship program
  • Generous paid time off
  • Medical, dental, vision, life, short-term, and long-term disability insurance
