Fort Scott Veterinary Center (FSVC) is a mixed animal practice serving Fort Scott, KS, and the surrounding areas. Our clinic was established to bring the latest in veterinary advancements and outstanding customer service to rural southeastern Kansas. Fort Scott Veterinary Center is teamed up with ReproLogixTM, a rapidly growing bovine, equine and small ruminant reproduction company dedicated to proliferating elite animal genetics through advanced reproductive technologies. The working relationship between FSVC and ReproLogixTM was born from a need to offer progressive techniques and services across both the veterinary and advanced reproduction industries.
To accomplish this, FSVC and ReproLogixTM have invested heavily in state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. The ReproLogixTM clinic features a custom designed cattle handling facility, a newly constructed embryo laboratory and an in-house IVF lab. Siting on 3,000-acres, this facility allows us to house client cattle for in-clinic work while offering recipient options and a weaned calf program. A fully equipped mobile laboratory enables us to bring our advanced technologies directly to our customers.
The adjoining FSVC clinic features small animal exam rooms, a surgical suite and an in-house laboratory for quick, on-site sample analysis. Digital x-ray provides instantaneous images so our veterinarians can make timely treatment decisions. A tilting, hydraulic Silencer chute and specially designed handling facilities allow our vets to safely and efficiently work on our large animal patients.
While our leading reproductive market currently lies within the cattle industry, we are actively cultivating our presence in the goat, sheep, deer and horse markets. We certainly welcome applications from veterinarians with an interest in any or all of these species. While some experience is ideal, we are happy to provide advanced training so that our veterinarians can become proficient in the veterinary and embryology services we offer. The successful applicant must work well with our close-knit team of young professionals as we believe idea sharing and open mentoring amongst team members encourages continual comradery and professional development.
