Join us in Almost Heaven as an essential part of a rural community where people still wave as you pass them on the road, share produce from their gardens, eggs from their chickens and say please and thank you often. Where enjoying a campfire with friends is a normal evening and weekend entertainment includes kayaking, hiking the national forest or hitting the ski slopes. Where farm to table is not trendy, but a way of life and where micro distillers were producing liquor way before it was cool. And, where occasionally, you can completely unplug because there are spots with no cell service! Yet, in a few hours you can be back in the city for a weekend away.
All of this, while practicing the medicine that you have dreamed about and all the diagnostics, staff and mentorship to do it! We don’t see appointments on the weekends because we are too busy enjoying the outdoors around us and we close early on Friday just to get a jump start on the weekend! Enjoy all the standard benefits plus opportunity for production bonuses. Invest in this community and it will invest in you. Guaranteed raise every year for the first five years after you settle in and the opportunity to buy a piece of this paradise if you stay.
Intrepid veterinarians searching for James Herriott meets modern medicine won’t want to miss this opportunity!

About Allegheny Equine / Allegheny Veterinary Services
The practice started in 2005 as an ambulatory only service and in 2015 opened a 5000 square foot hospital complete with recovery stall, stocks, ICU stalls, heated treatment area and paddocks. An additional barn under is construction. We are very vested in the community and active with local horse associations and 4-H. The practice sees primarily pleasure and trail horses with some western performance, endurance, and small breeding operations. Large animal patient load is primarily equine with occasional beef cattle and small ruminants. Practice is equipped with digital x-ray, digital ultrasound, 3 m videoendoscope, electronic medical records, Abaxis lab, tonometry, and advanced dentistry equipment. The practice is located just off of a new interstate with easy access for trailers.
We pride ourselves on combining high quality medicine with concierge level service. Annual exams are a standard and help us build long lasting relationships with our clients. The practice currently draws from a two-hour radius and the nearest referral center is four hours. Since expanding with a new location, the practice has also developed a busy small animal practice that includes servic...es from preventative care and elective surgery to orthopedic surgery. Appointments for both the large and small animal patients are Monday – Friday.
Support staff includes, a large animal coordinator and practice manager (with the practice 11 years), two receptionists, and a large animal technician. Small animal technicians are available to assist with in-clinic cases. Large animal technician will be provided during orientation period and as needed depending on case load. We are a growing practice and have established excellent training programs and hospital protocols for both the large animal and small animal staff. All staff members have required continuing education.
