The Nave Veterinary Group Difference

The Nave Veterinary Group is always looking for professionals who wish to work in a collaborative environment where excellence in veterinary medicine and superior customer service go hand in hand.

Our staff includes over 160 veterinarian professionals and we continue to grow throughout Southern Nevada. Our group includes a specialty center, two emergency centers, and a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week critical care hospital.

We proudly have specialists in orthopedic surgery, soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, dentistry, dermatology, ophthalmology, oncology, critical care, anesthesiology, neurology, and cardiology. We believe this adds tremendously to our mission of providing high-quality medicine and surgery to our clients, as well as support to our veterinarians.

The Experience.

Our goal remains the same as the day our first hospital opened its doors back in 1974.

“Providing young veterinary professionals the opportunity to grow through hands-on training, peer to peer mentorship, state of the art technology, continuing education, and having the necessary downtime to recharge and enjoy quality time at home”.

While in Las Vegas, you will have the unique opportunity to spend time at each of our general practices as well as our specialty center.
As an extern, we will provide you with hous- ing, a weekly stipend, transportation to our Hospitals, but most importantly, a mentorship from one of our reputable Doctors during all assessments and medical procedures. The Nave Veterinary Group welcomes anyone who is committed to practicing the best that veterinary medicine has to offer.

Our organization focuses to achieve excellence in veterinary medicine through compassionate one-on-one peer mentoring and care. We hold ourselves to the highest of medical standards and are accountable for ensuring clients and their pets receive optimal care.

Our diverse group respects each other’s needs and educational outlook. We are an evolving organization providing externs an opportunity to work with multiple practices, thus allowing them different viewpoints. Not only are we creating a foundation for future veterinarians, but we are developing future entrepreneurs.
