Associate Veterinarian

Now Hiring: Associate Veterinarian; w/ Sign $20k on Bonus!

 ‘Associate’ means a co-worker, partner, ally, and that is exactly what we are looking for! Bay Country Veterinary Hospital is a five-doctor, AAHA-accredited small animal hospital with locations in Annapolis and Crownsville, centrally located within 30 minutes of both Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC. We are looking to add a part- or full-time Associate Veterinarian who is interested in joining our team-oriented atmosphere. If you have a warm and welcoming personality, solid communication skills and a compassionate approach, this is the clinic for you.

About the Area:

Established in Maryland in 1911, the historic town of Crownsville is centrally and conveniently located to Baltimore, Washington D.C., and Maryland’s Capital, Annapolis, which is also home to our sister location! And if cities aren’t your thing, The beach is only 30 minutes away! Whether you enjoy city life, or life at the beach, rest assured that you will not be disappointed by Maryland’s world-famous crabcakes or its abundance of football games!


  • We pride ourselves on our connection with patients and the community. We deliver top-notch medicine with a level of service that’s beyond compare, all in a modern hospital setting.
  • Our clinic staff has a strong culture of mentorship and teamwork. We welcome those who want to engage in both learning and teaching to strengthen themselves and their colleagues.
  • Our staff operates more like a family. Over the years we have been fortunate to assemble the most amazing group of generous, kind and dedicated humans and we’d love to welcome another like-minded person into the fold. This is the kind of place that you’ll want to work for a very long time (as most of us have realized). The only arguments you’ll have with your coworkers will revolve around what to order for lunch.
  • We encourage and support you in finding your niche – our doctors have special interests in internal medicine, dentistry, surgery, acupuncture and exotics. A surgery day is available and encouraged to those interested.
  • We are serious about training and education. We adhere to AAHA standards and we’re proud to be a Cat Friendly practice. We are also fully equipped with digital radiology (including dental), laser therapy, in-house laboratory equipment (Idexx) and ultrasound capability.
  • As serious as we are about creating a family-like atmosphere, caring for our patients, training, and continuing education, we also prioritize a FUN working environment that everyone can enjoy and feel comfortable in! We love to enjoy doing what we love! We all work hard to provide great care to our patients and serve our very loyal clientele, but it’s imperative that we enjoy ourselves while doing so. (Also- We MAY have an opening for you in Annapolis, Maryland if you’re interested. But only if you’re open to rocking out to your favorite 80’s tunes in the treatment area (you can change the station if you ask nicely) and singing along, as long as you don’t judge our terrible pitch!)
