Milwood Animal Clinic in Portage, MI is looking for an associate veterinarian to join our tight knit group. Our three doctor team treats dogs, cats and exotics. There is a 5:1 staff to doctor ratio, and we have 4 LVTs. This is a great opportunity for a new grad looking to gain mentorship and experience in small animal medicine, or a more experienced doctor who has an interest in surgery. Our tenured doctors are happy to mentor and train a new or recent graduate. We are proud of our reputation in the community for providing compassionate care to our patients, and our ability to foster a supportive environment for our employees.
Our surgical schedule also offers the opportunity for a doctor who loves surgery to create a schedule that is exclusive to surgical procedures, or to handle a heavy surgical caseload mixed with appointments. We are happy to accommodate flexible scheduling for our doctors based on their interests.
If you are interested in working with exotics, we would be happy to support your interests and mentor you within exotics as well, as our whole team is well trained on exotic pet handling and nursing care. If your interests lie exclusively in treating dogs and cats, we are happy to bring you aboard our team too!
Full time DVM schedules consist of rotating 4 and 4.5 day workweeks with no weekend or on-call hours. A local ER covers evening and weekend emergencies, so we are proud of our outstanding work/life balance.
Our updated facility offers:
digital radiography (including dental)
2 IM3 high speed dental units
in-house blood chemistry machine
incubators for exotic patients
multiple patient warming units
IV fluid pumps

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. Gain access to mentorship at all levels, continuing education, wellness resources, and more!
