Employment Opportunities

We are always glad to accept resumes from enthusiastic, hard working, dependable, team oriented people who wish to join our team of veterinary health care professionals.

Please email completed applications and resumes to [email protected]

Positions for which we may have openings include:

 RECEPTIONISTS

Receptionists (who are also called customer service representatives or client-relations specialists) are the customer-relations experts in a veterinary practice. They are the clients’ first impression of the practice, on the phone or in person. Receptionists must possess strong organizational skills, excellent telephone and in-person communication skills, and the ability to remain calm under pressure. Receptionists must have compassion for animals and their owners and understand the stress that patients and clients endure.

Receptionists are responsible for greeting clients; differentiating routine cases from emergency cases; scheduling appointments; entering client, patient, and financial data into the computer; generating invoices and explaining them to clients; processing payments; and managing the retrieval and storage of medical records.

Receptionists should expect to spend nearly all of their workdays at the front desk. The position requires the completion of a high-school degree or further education, competence in the English language, patience, and a pleasant manner. Ideally, newly hired receptionists will possess computer skills and have had cashier and related front-office work experience. Must be able to work some weekends and holidays.

NO RECEPTIONIST POSITIONS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

VETERINARY TECHNICIANS

Veterinary technicians may also be identified as registered veterinary technicians, certified veterinary technicians, animal-health technicians, or veterinary nurses. In many states, veterinary technicians are required to have completed an AVMA-accredited veterinary-technician program prior to passing the state’s requirements for certification or registration.

Veterinary technicians must have a broad knowledge of animal science, medicine, and husbandry, including a basic knowledge of pharmacology and sufficient mathematical skills to ensure the administration of accurate drug and fluid doses. They must be able to successfully restrain animals, complete clinical laboratory tests, use multiple radiology techniques, administer and monitor animals under anesthesia, assist in surgery, and perform dental procedures. Technicians must also deliver compassionate nursing care. Must be able to work some weekends and holidays.

NO TECHNICIAN POSITIONS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME

VETERINARIAN ASSISTANT

The responsibilities of veterinary assistants vary considerably from one practice to another. In some situations, they may be assigned to assist only in the exam room or to assist only the veterinary technicians. More typically, though, they will divide their time between assisting the receptionists, helping doctors with physical examinations, dispensing medications, and helping veterinary technicians position patients for and process radiographs, prepare patients for surgery, provide nursing and comfort care, and perform treatments or basic laboratory diagnostic tests.

Veterinary assistants must build positive, professional relationships with clients and staff members. Assistants should have completed or be in the process of completing their high school diplomas and must pursue significant on-the-job training. Must be able to work some weekends and holidays.

NO VETERINARY ASSISTANT POSITIONS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME

KENNEL ASSISTANT

Veterinary kennel assistants (also called animal caretakers) are responsible for the day-to-day care of patients and boarders. This includes feeding, watering, cleaning, walking, bathing, and monitoring the well being of dogs, cats and, occasionally, other companion animals. Kennel assistants must have sufficient physical strength, mobility, and stamina to lift and/or move heavy pets and objects, the dexterity and confidence to administer medications, and the ability to monitor pets for signs of distress or disease. It is essential that they have the ability and willingness to learn and the desire to provide gentle, compassionate care for boarded and hospitalized pets. Kennel experience is not always a prerequisite for this position. Must be able to work some weekends and holidays.
