Rates are negotiable and will be discussed in more detail before work is arranged.
I don’t have a maximum number of hours per day that I’m willing to work. I am available on weekends. I am available for emergency clinics and holidays. Accommodation and travel expenses will be covered by you.
Please note that as an independent contractor, I pay my own share of medicare and social security tax (commonly known as the self-employment tax). I also cover the cost of my own workers’ compensation, malpractice, general liability, and health insurance. I am also responsible for my own continuing education, office supplies, and travel/accommodation expenses. My rates take these expenditures into account as well as my overall experience in veterinary medicine.
My current minimum booking is 8 hours. However, this can also be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
I understand that sometimes circumstances denote that scheduled work needs to be cancelled. Any cancellations made outside of 30 days prior to the booked date will not incur a fee. However, any cancellations made within 30 days of the agreed upon schedule will levy a 8-hour minimum charge per day unless that date is rebooked. A good faith effort will be made on my own part to rebook any cancelled dates. However, it can be difficult to book specific dates on short (less than 30 day) notice. This policy is discretionary and will be applied on a case-by-case basis.
