Are you a residency trained or boarded internist (small animal) that is tired of corporate medicine oversight and hospital owners that don’t care, not having the freedom to run your service how you see fit, having inappropriate cases pawned off on you, not having the equipment you need, not getting paid what you deserve, or lack of work-life balance?  Red River Animal Emergency Hospital & Referral Center wants to invite YOU to come and visit Fargo, ND so we can show you everything our hospital and city has to offer!

Who we are:

Red River Animal Emergency Hospital is independently owned and has been serving North Dakota, Minnesota, and South Dakota communities for the past 16 years. We are a VECCS level 2 center and North Dakota’s only 24/7 emergency hospital, who is currently expanding to provide our specialists with their dream space to practice. We currently have two boarded criticalists who provide hemodialysis, plasmapheresis, and mechanical ventilator therapies. Along with our criticalists, we have 11 experienced emergency veterinarians backed by a great support staff and management team. By having owners who work in our hospital, It gives our leadership team a great perspective on how to support our staff and to make sure a good work life balance is provided. Our hospital owners and leadership team want our doctors to practice how they want and make sure you have any and all the support, equipment, and staff you need to run your department. With our new two-story hospital addition, we are actively hiring for surgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology, and oncology specialists to better serve our community.

Our facility currently has all the bells and whistles including a large ICU, 2 surgery suites, extensive in-house lab, bedside oxygen, Snyder O2 units, 16 slice helical CT, advanced ultrasound and echo services, GI endoscope, and our own blood bank. The two-story specialty center will have two more surgery suites, 8 additional exam rooms, rooms for endoscopy/rhinoscopy,  fluoro capabilities, new hemodialysis suite, and our digital x-ray system will include wireless DR plates for mobile/intraop use. Anything else our specialists require or need for their department we will provide!
