Do you love to travel and see new things? Do you crave a healthy work-life balance? At Southway Animal Hospital, you will have enough flexibility and income to pursue a lifestyle that satisfies your passions. Located in Grant County, Indiana, our practice may be surrounded by cornfields, but the cost-of-living is one of the lowest in the country. You’ll experience a friendly, small town atmosphere with all the modern veterinary toys you would expect of any big-city practice, all in a four-day workweek (did someone say three-day weekends?!). Not to mention, you’ll be within an hour and a half of two international airports, with the local airport only two cornfields (less than a mile) away!
Meet your new boss, the owner of the practice, Dr. Beth Davis. With over 34 years of experience in small animal practice, including 29 years at Southway, she’s a highly respected member of the community with a cheerful demeanor and a passion for cutting-edge therapies. If there’s a specialized area of medicine that you would like to pursue (e.g. chiropractic, orthopedic surgery, etc.), she wants to encourage you toward that by paying for your CE. Dr. Davis is committed to excellence in veterinary medicine, and she wants your voice and your input to be heard and put into practice. There’s even the opportunity for ownership down the road, if that’s something that interests you.
One of the best things about Southway Animal Hospital is the people who work there; some are very long-term (longer than Dr. Davis!), with both well-trained technicians and experienced front desk staff. They are loyal to the practice and fantastic with clients, almost as well-loved as the doctors themselves. The presence and impact of the clinic in the community is multi-generational, with children of long-term clients now returning as adults with pets of their own. For flexibility, stability, opportunity, balance, and overall satisfaction, you won’t find a better practice to work for than Southway Animal Hospital!
