Due to the nature of the cases we see we have developed a tight knit and highly efficient team led by five doctors. Most cases are managed in-house but we also refer cases to tertiary care facilities.
We have a full in-house IDEXX suite of lab equipment surgical ventilator cautery video endoscopy digital radiography referral quality ultrasound and in-house blood bank. There is ready access to an ultrasound/echocardiography specialist and we have an ophthalmologist that visits twice monthly.

As a trusted member of our community we support many local rescue groups including Watauga County Humane Society.
With both leadership and mentorship opportunities this position is a great fit for both an experienced vet or a new grad.

I would highly recommend anyone to work for a Vetcor clinic because of all the available resources they offer to their employees! These resources vary from continuing education to the importance of mental health and not burning out. Stonebridge has been one of the best places I have worked and has done nothing but help me pursue my goal of becoming an LVT.
There are programs including VetLife Days and Lend-a-Hand that allow you to spend time at other clinics. I have met some wonderful colleagues this way and have also been able to expand my leadership skills within Vetcor. I actually learned that I love teaching and supporting other veterinarians, especially new graduates. I love soft tissue surgery, so to be able to pass on that knowledge and skill set to new grads, giving them the confidence and skills they need to excel, has been very rewarding. It has been an amazing journey with Vetcor so far and I am excited to continue to be part of this amazing group.
The mentorship and advice from the Vetcor Chief of Staff Advisors have helped me become a better veterinarian and surgeon. They have filled me with confidence in order to become a better leader. Vetcor has been a great corporation to work for.
There is a career path for everybody and not a one size fits all approach.
Join a group of motivated veterinary professionals while taking advantage of employee programs, resources, and fantastic benefits. Join one of our many collaboration groups for Hospital Managers, Techs, and Vets! Plus, we love supporting growth in your teams' desired career paths.
