Relief Veterinarian
Relief vet and surgical services I recently sold my small animal veterinary practice and am looking for relief work or to offer my surgical skills for your small animal practice. Surgical skills include soft tissue surgery, tumor removals, cystotomies, pyometria sx, spleenectomies, cherry eye sx, fracture repair, patella surgery, extra-capsular repair for torn ACL, TPLO sx, FHO’s and much more. I have been preforming these surgeries for over 30 years and am a perfectionist when it comes to the outcome of the surgery. I have great communication skills with both the client and staff members. I believe diagnostic work-ups are an important part of getting a correct diagnosis for a sick patient and if necessary I can preform an ultrasound. I am confident in doing dentals, extractions and digital dental x-rays. Looking for relief in the Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, Greeley Lafayette areas.

Looking for some time off? I graduated from KSU-CVM in 2000. I have been doing small animal medicine relief work combined with full-time work since 2004. My focus has mostly been in emergency medicine, but I also do relief work in day practices. I practice quality medicine and firmly believe every patient and client deserves to have the best care offered to them, whether the client pushed the pet to the clinic in a grocery cart or pulled up in the front seat of a Mercedes. I am used to working with clients with budgets so even if they can’t afford the “Gold standard”, I will provide the best the clinic can with what the client has. I like diagnostics. I believe any little bit of information I can get for an owner and pet to help with their treatments and treatment decisions is important. I am available for day shifts, seven days a week, and I prefer Saturday and Sunday shifts. I also can travel throughout the state. Please contact me if you have any questions. If you have not heard from me within 24 hours, please attempt again. I live and travel throughout the mountains, and at times, cell service is poor at best or just not working for hours at a time! 970-470-2346 (“relief work” in subject line so I know you’re not spam.)
