Associate Veterinarian

Are you an experienced veterinarian looking for a highly collaborative team?  Is having time for family and friends outside of work a luxury you thought you could never have? Do you have a genuine desire to work up medicine cases with cutting edge technology and expand your surgical skills with a seasoned mentor?  Is seeing exotics and birds on your wish list?  Does living in a community where your cost of living is low and number of friends is high appeal to you? Would you like to experience firsthand how a full suite of rehabilitation equipment can improve patient outcomes?  These are a just a few of the things you will enjoy at Pekin Veterinary Clinic in Pekin, IL, just outside of Peoria.

 

Our facility is beautifully remodeled and features updated equipment including GE Logiq e Vet ultrasound with doppler, laser and radio wave surgery, Med Rx unit, digital radiology, video endoscopy, full in-house lab, orthopedic capability, digital dental radiography, therapeutic laser and a complete certified physical rehabilitation center. 

 

Pekin is a hub for outdoor action. We have over 2,500 acres of park space including ice skating, trails, canoeing, horseback riding, golf, skateboarding, boating and more. Pekin is only 2 ½ hours from both Chicago and St. Louis if you seek more big city action.  Yes, we are in the middle, so we have both Cubs and Cardinal fans on our team; the bantering back and forth is great fun.  

 

At Pekin, we take the health and well-being of our employees seriously, offering flexible working conditions and encouraging a well-rounded work/life balance. We offer a great compensation package, including a competitive salary, high signing bonus, full sponsorship for rehabilitation certification, additional surgical continuing education reimbursement, health insurance, 401K, PTO, generous CE allowance, additional PTO for CE, and reimbursement for membership and license fees.

Voluntary Self-Identification


For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in PetVet Care Centers’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.

How do you know if you have a disability?
