FixaPet is in search of a full-time or part-time Veterinarian to join our team.

FixaPet is a successful low-cost, spay/neuter program for the public’s animals, where almost 20,000 surgeries have been performed. Sponsored by Clark County Humane Society, a new 12,000 square foot addition to the Shelter houses the clinic. Plans are to increase the size and scope of the FixaPet program as the demand for these services has been overwhelming and shows no signs of slowing. Future plans are already in place to expand the facility, and this new position will be an integral part of adding to the capabilities.
Responsibilities include ensuring safe, effective and efficient medical processes while providing direction to medical support staff. This position will be the lead vet for the FixaPet and Shelter Medicine programs. As such, performing high-volume, high-quality spay/neuter surgeries for Shelter and public animals is required. Oversite of our Shelter medicine program will include wellness exams, vaccinations, diagnosis and treatment of illness, developing and implementing treatment plans as needed for Shelter animals, dental cleanings and extractions, soft tissue surgeries, and performing other surgeries as needed for Shelter animals. In-house lab diagnostic capabilities are available.
