Young Veterinary Clinic is a privately owned mixed animal practice which opened in 1995. We do approximately 75% small animal and 25% large animal. We currently have two full-time veterinarians and are seeking to hire two more full time veterinarians to our growing practice. In 2021 we completed a 4000 sq. foot addition of an incredible new hospital onto our existing clinic. We are equipped with all the equipment and space to practice high quality veterinary medicine in a great little northwest Missouri town. We are located an hour and a half away from downtown Kansas City. The community is a safe and relaxing town to live and work in. Chillicothe, Missouri offers lots of excellent outdoor events and activities for your off time, great public and private schools for raising children. Excellent hunting and fishing and hiking in nearby state parks and game lands nearby. 

We value our relationship with our clients and pride ourselves on being able to provide the most advanced veterinary services to our community and surrounding counties. We are a cohesive group and work together as a team but most importantly we all love what we do and care about our fellow co-workers. We all get along and treat each other with respect and listen and learn from what each individual on staff has to offer.
