Associate Veterinarian Position


Rogersville Animal Hospital is a privately owned small animal veterinary hospital in beautiful upper East Tennessee. Rogersville is a small, rural community and we also serve a large radius of the surrounding areas. The atmosphere and clientele here are very laid back and down-to-earth. We are a low-cost, high-volume veterinary hospital and we take a limited number of walk-ins. Although we are a busy practice, our hours are 8:30a.m. to 4:00p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and we close at noon on Wednesdays, so our full-time veterinarians typically work 32 to 35 hours a week, which is very nice! We use Avimark and paperless patient records. In-house diagnostic capabilities include digital radiology and Abaxis blood chemistry (including cortisol testing) and CBC machines. We have a fully equipped surgical suite with pulse-oximeter and esophageal stethoscope for monitoring patients. We see many interesting medical and surgical cases here and we also have limited orthopedic surgery capabilities. We maintain good relationships with nearby veterinary clinics and hospitals and have several great options for referral when needed.

Outdoor Adventures: If you are someone who loves to be outside, you will love the numerous lakes, forests, and mountains that provide you with endless opportunities for hiking, fishing, and whatever else your heart desires.

History: Rogersville was settled by the grandparents of Davy Crockett in 1775. It is named for its founder Joseph Rogers. Rogersville holds Tennessee’s second oldest courthouse, first newspaper and first post office, all located in the historic downtown. The entire downtown area and most of the adjacent neighborhoods are on the National Register of Historic Places.

While Rogersville is a smaller town, it is an easy drive to several larger cities, so your adventures are limitless!
