Type of Practice- Mixed (50% Dog and Cat, 20% Equine , 20% Bovine/Caprine/Ovine, and 10% Exotics) -Our hospital works closely with several rescue organizations and our local zoo while maintaining a large clientele as we work a large ER base for the community and surrounding area. We have over 60 years of combined experience and are familiar with the mentorship it takes to train new graduates.
Angelina Animal Hospital was founded in 1957 and has continued to be a large part of the community with many loyal clients. We have 5 exam rooms and 2 surgery suites and a consultation room (that can be used as an additional exam room when needed). The surgery rooms are utilized for about 15+ surgeries daily due to our contract with the City of Lufkin Animal Shelter (Kurth Memorial), as well as other low cost programs. We also provide digital radiography, ultrasound, Idexx LaserCyte, Catalyst, CoagDX, and SediVue, covered barn equipped with stocks and a hydraulic chute for large animals, SurgiVet multiparameter moniter, cryosurgical unit, VetDop (Doppler blood pressure), TonoVet and a Snyder intensive care oxygen unit, and a brand new video endoscope used for biopsies, foreign body retrievals, and diagnostics. Our new facility is state of the art and opened in November 2016. It features a 8600sq ft small animal facility with kennels and outside dog runs and a 8900sq foot barn/large animal facility with full working pens and we sit on a 9 acre section of property that is capable of expansion. Our 15+ technicians are well trained and most are CVA 1 or higher certified (>4:1 Doctor to tech ratio).
Lufkin is a small peaceful community located in the Pineywoods of East Texas. Nearby entertainment includes Stephen F. Austin State University, Lake Sam Rayburn and Ellen Trout Zoo. It is located about 2.5 hours from College Station and is in reasonable proximity to major cities such as Houston, Dallas, and Austin.
We are interested in hiring a 5th full time associate or an overnight ER veterinarian willing to work 5 nights a week to aid in our large growing facility.
