Associate Veterinarian wanted for the St. Augustine Animal Clinic, a privately owned small animal exclusive practice in beautiful St. Augustine, Florida. Family atmosphere with work/life balance and an opportunity to have fun and really know your clients and patients. No after-hours emergency duty: emergency clinics and specialty practices near by for referral when needed. The Clinic is open Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm and Saturdays from 8 am until noon.
We have in house Diagnostic equipment, Digital Radiography, Laser Therapy, General Surgery and Dentistry instruments. St. Johns county has great schools, beaches, golf courses and a life style that can't be matched. Full or Part time Veterinary Hours, pay, benefits and buy in potential can all be discussed. I love my patients, staff, clients and practice and I want you to love them too.
Those relationships are why we became veterinarians. Contact me on my cell phone at 904-806-0718.

We now have enough staffing to resume weekend boarding!

Also, Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings we have many openings for routine baths.

Dr. Jack's best fur friend "Buddy" is so loved that he wears his heart on his head for all to see.


So, Petey is healing well and has a new home with one of our technicians.
"I want to extend our gratitude to our clients for their patience, understanding, and support during this difficult time. We are doing everything possible to communicate and provide the best patient care. We treat your pet like our own and understand the importance of the bond and love our pets give to us. We know it’s especially important during these difficult and stressful times. We are going to continue our curbside Vet Valet service into September. We will continue to evaluate the situation with Coronavirus to ensure the safety of you and our health care team. Please remember our staff is exposing themselves to a large number of people and this impacts all of us and our families. Thank you again for your support, understanding, and trust during the pandemic. You have been there for us and we will do everything in our power to be there for you!"

    Dr. Jack has been our vet since he started his practice here. The staff has always been professional yet kind and compassionate. Today when I called, I was told that Jack had a family commitment and was leaving the office "shortly". I explained that our dog, Rajah, seemed to be in a life threatening crisis, and I was told to bring her right in. Jack waited for me to get there, examined Rajah and we discussed the options. He never gave any indication that he had somewhere else to be. Jack and the staff never tried to rush me into making a decision and when it was made they were all very supportive. Not sure if I'll get another pet, but if I do Dr. Jack is the only vet for me.

    Really love this animal clinic! The staff and vets are very knowledgeable, friendly, and compassionate. All personnel are really interested in the welfare of each animal that comes through their doors. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes past my scheduled appointment and the "meet and greet" cat in the waiting room is hysterical!
