Associate Emergency Veterinarian

In person

Vet Med is tough. The big city grind can be overwhelming. Come to Bend, Oregon and relax. Join us at Bend Animal Emergency and Specialty Center as an emergency veterinarian and discover that ER vet life outside of the big city. At the foot of the Cascade Mountain Range, numerous opportunities for recreation abound. Alpine lakes and forests of pine, hiking and biking, snow capped mountains and ski resorts, rock climbing and off-roading. If being outside helps calm your brain, this is the place to be.

Bend Animal Emergency and Specialty Center has been a long-standing ECC and specialty hospital in Central Oregon. We are committed to providing the highest standard of patient care from a wide range of specialty services including 24-hour emergency and critical care, surgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology, and cardiology. We are continually seeking to unite highly skilled professionals in the veterinary field. Our goal is to provide a collaborative environment that strives to provide excellent medical care from the moment of arrival to the moment of discharge and beyond, leading to lasting relationships and trust within the community, our clients, and our employees.

Bend Animal Emergency (BAE) and Specialty Center is owned and operated by two local Bend emergency veterinarians. BAE strives to be a community where diversity and inclusion are a priority. We are BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ allies.

Our main goal is to put the experience of our employees at the forefront of how we operate. Of course we want to practice high-quality medicine and provide first-class care to our clients (we expect that you do too), but running a business with a sense of moral obligation towards our staff comes first. The same empathy given to our clients needs to be given to our employees, and we are excited to move forward with our dream.

We are passionate about providing assistance to nonprofits in our community. If you find an organization you want to help, we will provide support for your endeavors.
