43rd Avenue Animal Hospital
Location: Glendale, Arizona
Type: Full Time
Salary is a combination of base pay plus commission.
DVM or equivalent
Here at 43rd, we need another vet. We need fresh meat; We’ll take a new grad or someone who has raced around the track a few times… just so long as you like us and we like you.
The Important Details
Need some flexibility in your work week schedule? We’ll tak ya’ full OR part time. We see the small furry things that like to meow and bark. No strange birds or mousey things. Rabbits…No. Does surgery give you anxiety? Then you don’t have to do it. Love emergencies? Good for you! We don’t like those very much and like an appointment based schedule much more. Do you like being supported with a high staff ratio so all you do are doctor things? That is great, because that is what we like too. If you like aggressive clients, with sketchy critters that are not compliant, well, then we are not the clinic for you. Trazodone and Gabapentin for everyone!
We love our clients and our patients and we want to do what is the best for each one that walks into our clinic. We have lots of toys: Ultrasound machine, dental radiograph unit, surgery suite, 2 laser machines and all the fun IDEXX lab machines that do all the cool blood and urine things.
Our doctors currently offer specialized services like echocardiograms, ultrasounds, orthopedic surgery and acupuncture. If you wanted to learn these things, jump on board and we will teach you.
What we want is a veterinarian who has a sunny disposition, and their cup is almost always full. Someone who can communicate well with clients and team members.
