Employment at Roxbury Animal Clinic

Position: Full-Time Mixed Animal Veterinarian

Roxbury Animal Clinic is a mixed animal veterinary practice situated in the beautiful Litchfield County, where traditional farming culture meets modern lifestyles and high-quality veterinary medicine is practiced on all species, with a common sense, hometown approach. This is the modern-day, Connecticut-style version of All Creatures Great & Small.

Our caseload is approximately 60% small animal, 20% equine, and 20% farm animal, although this can vary seasonally. We currently have 4 full-time veterinary and a fully staffed team of credentialed veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, front desk staff, a full-time inventory manager, and a full-time practice manager. Each veterinary works in the clinic completing surgeries, well-patient exams, and sick patient exams, and each veterinary spends at least one full day per week on farm and house calls, traveling up to a 23-mile radius from the clinic. A work vehicle with a vet box unit is provided. We manage our own on-call service and are lucky to have multiple small animal and equine specialty hospitals nearby with specialists available for assistance with case management. Updated equipment in the clinic includes in-house IDEXX catalyst, ProCite and sedative machines, a full suite of DR digital radiology equipment (small animal, dental, and mobile equine), small animal dental unit, laser therapy, GE LogiqE ultrasound machine, doppler blood pressure, and more.

Roxbury Animal Clinic is rapidly expanding with an ever-increasing volume of new clients, patients, and demand for veterinary care in the area. Construction will be starting imminently on a brand new 5,000 sq-foot small animal hospital and a 1,800 sq-foot large animal barn. This new facility will be built on property adjacent to our current clinic and will be completed by 2025. This project will allow us to continue working in our current clinic as is, until the new hospital is completed.

We welcome applicants of any background, whether you are an experienced mixed animal veterinarian, a veterinarian considering expanding from one species to many, or you have just graduated from veterinary school. It’s an exciting time to work at Roxbury Animal Clinic and we look forward to adding another veterinary to the team!

We pride ourselves in caring for each and every patient as if they were our own pets and are notorious for getting down on the floor with our patients to cuddle and love on them!
