Russell and District Veterinary Clinic Seeking A Veterinarian

Mixed 2 person practise on the Manitoba – Saskatchewan border looking for a third veterinarian.  The emphasis on family and rural living.  Experienced (old) veterinarian willing to mentor with the idea of phasing out of practise.  The business is truly mixed with dogs, cows, cats and horses being majority of income.  We are still growing, in many areas, and are in the process of building new facilities.  We are hoping to develop a new large animal facility this summer, with remodelling of the old building to accommodate the larger small animal practise later in the year.

The area is very busy economically.  There are 3 Potash mines, a canola crush plant and a flax crush plant that employ a lot of people. We also have the Assessippi Ski and Winter park and the Riding Mountain National Park that brings in tourist from all over. Both parks create multiple opportunities for outdoor activities.  There are several golf courses close and many areas where seasonal cabins and all-weather cabins have developed.

The town of Russell has a population of about 1800 persons and is very progressive.  There is a K to 12 school in town. The daycare is now expanding to accommodate more children and the library has upgraded recently. The towns Multiplex has a gym and walking track plus the customary rink that was rebuilt about 6 years ago.

There are many churches in town as well.  We also have a grocery store, a Bargain shop, convenience store, three craft stores and two coffee shops. One having an actual barrista.
We are located on # 16 highway halfway between Winnipeg and Saskatoon. The closest large shopping centre is 1 hour to Yorkton. We are 2 hours from Brandon, 3 hours from Regina, and 4.5 hours from Winnipeg. We have had very few cases of Covid 19.

If you are interested in this job contact Dr. Cathy Clemence at the Russell and District Veterinary Clinic or 1-204-773-3777. Come join us for a day to see the practise and area. Graduate or student or semi-retired veterinarians are all welcome to apply.
