Job Description


VCA Lakeside Animal Hospital  in Reno, Nevada is seeking a highly experienced Veterinarian to lead our multi-doctor practice as Medical Director

Signing/Relocation Bonus offered!

This is an outstanding opportunity to continue practicing medicine while establishing the direction and medical quality of the hospital like an owner would, but without the risks of ownership. Plus, you'll have the solid backing of experts in Operations, Marketing, Human Resources, Payroll, and more, to help you succeed. 

We place a strong emphasis on holistic and alternative therapies and welcome experienced veterinarians from all backgrounds.  Our practice is located in Northwest Reno amid quiet neighborhoods and master planned communities. The building, that is our professional home, is well known to the communities we serve. Our services include comprehensive preventative wellness care including early disease detection, vaccines and parasite control. In addition to our preventative services, we offer in-house lab testing, digital radiology, ultrasound, internal medicine, hospitalization and intensive care, surgery, urgent care, advanced dentistry, laser therapy, and other client resources.


The Medical Director—under the guidance of the Regional Medical Director and field management team—ensures on a day-to-day basis that the hospital team carries out VCA’s promise to our clients: making their pet’s health our top priority and excellent service our goal. The Medical Director mentors the veterinary and technical staff and oversees the medical standards and profitable operations of the practice, in addition to educating clients on and striving to deliver the highest quality medical, surgical, dental and nutritional diagnostics, treatment, and preventative care to companion animals.
