We aim to deliver the highest quality veterinary care in our county and we currently have a 4.9 Google rating and one of the best reputations for a multi doctor animal hospital. Our facility was recently renovated using AAHA standards to ensure best state of the art practice in our area. We do not offer boarding or grooming so that we can concentrate on giving the best veterinary care and preventative programs to ensure that our patients have a long & healthy life.
As a privately owned business in operation for over 30 years, we are seeking a compassionate, team-player who can uphold a great reputation with clients. You will be responsible for managing cases while being mentored by experienced peers, and will require the ability to productively make decisions as well as clearly & effectively communicate with fellow team members. We have a reputation for excellence in work-life balance, mentorship, maintaining a positive environment and willingness to bond with team members, clients & patients. We do not answer to shareholders (as corporations do) and every veterinarian is treated with the utmost respect. Each doctor is also staffed with a team of at least 1 technician & 1 assistant for every shift.
