Job Description: Guffey Veterinary Clinic Looking for a forever owner

The Guffey Veterinary Clinic and Healing Arts Center is looking for a forever owner to fill the large shoes vacated by retiring veterinarian Amy Mason, DVM, or Doc Amy as she is known.

The dream of a lifetime was shattered in an instant in a car collision in June 2016. Though not her fault, the car accident left Mason with a Traumatic Brain Injury, forcing her early retirement and changing her life forever. "It was truly heartbreaking for me to accept that I could no longer continue with the clinic I love so much," said Mason in a Christmas letter to her clients. "I will be forever grateful for the precious time and memories I have with you and your animals, my beloved patients. I miss you all so! My heart aches!"

Mason and a friend are putting together a memory album. If you have any stories, letters, and pictures to share, please send to Guffey Veterinary Clinic, 84 Main St., Guffey, CO 80829, Attention Memory Album.

Mason is seeking an energetic veterinarian, perhaps just out of school or one more seasoned, but who would like to relocate to the rural Guffey mountain area. When the clinic is sold, Mason would like to have her retirement party and introduce her new replacement, she said.

Mason has owned and operated the GVC for ten years and has built up a clientele over those years; her client database, covering a 60-mile radius, comes with the sale. The clinic, housed in a charming, historic, Guffey-style building at 84 Main Street, includes an exam room and laboratory; office and reception areas; surgery and dentistry room with all equipment. There are fenced areas outside, a kennel, and many storage outbuildings on the property. There is also space for a doggie salon inside. A full service veterinary truck fully stocked with equipment for house calls comes with the clinic.

The practice consists of 90% small animals and 10% large animals including dogs, cats, horses, cows, llamas, alpacas, and goats and has been a boon to the Guffey area. This practice is already set up, ready to go, successful and has a clientele who are dedicated to their animals. There is only one multi-county, large animal veterinarian in the area. The next closest veterinarians are 35 plus miles away.

As an incentive for veterinarians to locate and practice in a rural community, the Veterinary Education Loan Repayment Program signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper in June 2017, will pay up to $70,000 for loan repayment to accepted veterinarians. 

This is a great chance for an energetic veterinarian to move right in and start practicing. Is this your opportunity; do you know someone who would be interested; or do you just want to tell the GVC brokers what a special place Guffey is and what you would like in a replacement veterinarian?
