Urgent Care Veterinarian

Are you an emergency veterinarian looking to practice urgent care while maintaining a quality-of-life balance? Are you a general practitioner that's thinking about making a change? If so, we want to talk to you!

About CVETS

CVETS, Columbia Veterinary Emergency, Trauma, and Specialty, is a rapidly expanding specialty/ER hospital in Columbia, SC that is opening a new urgent care clinic in West Columbia, SC (approximately 20 minutes away). Our goal in opening this new clinic is to help with the growing demand for urgent care treatment of mild cases in the area. Emergency departments are continuing to struggle with critical case volume and our patients experience extremely long wait times when our Critical Care Department is busy. We want to provide our patients with the ability to be seen and treated in a timely fashion.

CVETS opened in May of 2018 and our caseload is growing rapidly. The facility includes a dedicated ICU, multiple operating rooms, a radiology suite, dedicated facilities for endoscopy, chemotherapy administration and special procedures, ultrasound, a 16 slice CT scanner, on-site MRI, and multiple specialty services (24-hour emergency care, surgery, anesthesiology, internal medicine, oncology, neurology, radiology, cardiology, dermatology, ophthalmology, and dentistry).

Balanced Schedules

Hours of operation will not include full overnight care at our Urgent Care clinic. Our doctors will have a set schedule, allowing for work/life balance. Cases that require critical care and overnight hospitalization will be triaged to our specialty hospital in Columbia. Our urgent care facility will be privately-owned, just as our specialty hospital is. Our team will be instrumental in the ongoing development of the location, and we are excited to embark on this new venture for CVETS!
