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 18 years. We are North Dakota’s only 24/7 emergency hospital, who has expanded to provide our specialists with their dream space to practice. We currently have two boarded criticalists who provide hemodialysis, plasmapheresis, and mechanical ventilator therapies, a part-time boarded surgeon, and a boarded oncologist. 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 they have any and all the support, equipment, and staff they need to run their department. 

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. Our two-story specialty and referral center offers two more surgery suites, 8 additional exam rooms, rooms for endoscopy/rhinoscopy, fluoro capabilities, new hemodialysis suite, and our digital x-ray system includes wireless DR plates for mobile/intraop use. Anything else our specialists require or need for their department, we will provide!

Work-life balance is important, so on-call would not be required (no after hours or weekends).
