Associate DVM


  1. We’ve got all the benefits you would expect for an Associate DVM: excellent salary, paid time off and holidays, paid health, vision, dental, and liability insurance, etc. But we’re also offering a sign-on bonus, no on-call, and a flexible schedule. We will develop a schedule and compensation package that fits your needs.
  2. We’re not just blowing smoke when we say we take having a great hospital culture seriously. We’re committed to making this the best place any of our team members have EVER worked. We accomplish this in many ways, but our strong “no drama” policy weeds out the toxic and entitled employees, while good employees are promoted and rewarded.
  3. Our team is diverse, dedicated, progressive, and slightly off-kilter. We like it that way.
  4. Rexford is a cool place to live. Located on the Mohawk River and backed up to the beautiful Adirondack Mountains, we’ve got every kind of outdoor recreation you could want. We offer the benefits of small-town, no-commute life just minutes from city culture and fun in Albany and Saratoga Springs.
  5. If you’ve got kids, the schools are terrific and there’s also tons of stellar wineries and breweries all around us. (IYKYK, right?) We also have Saratoga Downs, plenty of art museums, live Broadway shows, music festivals, and state parks.
  6. We’re welcoming, respectful, knowledgeable, honest, and committed to the safety of our staff. We’re looking for an experienced DVM or recent grad who shares those values and is also currently or eligible to be licensed in the state of New York. We are willing to mentor a new or recent grad, empowering you for your future.
  7. New York City is an easy, inexpensive 3-hour bus or train ride away for the weekend. If NYC isn’t your thing, we are also 3 hours from Boston, Montreal, and the ocean.
  8. As an independent, privately-owned practice, we don’t have any corporate overlords, so we have the time and motivation to invest in you and help you achieve your goals and develop a specialty if that’s your desire.
  9. As far as we’re concerned, our hospital only sells one product: the bond between a healthy, happy pet and their family. 
  10. We make it easy to apply: Email your current resume and a cover letter telling us why you think you’d be good fit to Dr. Matthew Pike at
