Company Profile: Associated Veterinary Services (AVS) was started in 1981 with the mission to provide the Baton Rouge community with high quality veterinary medicine for everyone. Forty years later we are the largest small animal practice in the Baton Rouge area and we still aim to provide affordable top-notch medical care for animals, as well as exceptional customer service and education for pet owners.

We also value diversity, inclusion, collaboration, and community. Our team is like family. Despite being a busy small animal practice with a large staff, we watch out for each other (by checking in when each other needs support or is sick), celebrate one another (when we have life events or throw holiday parties), volunteer together (for causes we all love), and support each other’s personal and professional growth.

If you are a veterinarian with a hunger for growth, a passion for veterinary medicine, and a commitment to community, this might be the place for you. Apply today!
