If this describes you, then we want you on our team!

Why We Need You

We recognize that our clients have many choices in veterinary care, including the choice to skip it altogether. Your mission will be to win the confidence of every pet parent—by delivering an outstanding client experience—so they will partner with us for the lifelong care of their companion animals. And to never take their patronage for granted.

You’ve worked hard for your credentialing and we want you to use the knowledge that you’ve invested your time and talent in. The skills that you will be utilizing include, but are not limited to: venipuncture, catheter placement, radiology, anesthesia monitoring, physical examinations and patient assessment, surgical preparation and assisting, dentistry, laboratory work, pharmacy, patient recovery, and compassionate care for our hospitalized patients.

Your teaching and marketing skills will also come into play, as you educate clients on the value of advanced veterinary care. You will be in a unique position to coach them on keeping their pets healthy, as well as validating any concerns they may have in collaborating with the doctor. Making a positive impact on both the patient’s life and the client’s is a privilege that you will share in.

Perhaps the greatest asset you will bring is your emotional intelligence. As you know, the hospitalization of a beloved pet can be a stressful situation for everyone involved. At times, your ability to maintain a cool head and treat clients according to the Golden Rule will be tested. But we have faith in your professionalism and know that you won’t let us, your patients—or yourself—down!

Why You Should Consider Us

As a member of the VCA family, your passion for medicine and compassion for pets and people is matched with a commitment to your professional growth. You will enjoy exposure to a diverse and stimulating caseload, employ the most advanced imaging and monitoring tools, and tap into the expertise of more than 3,000 doctors, including 360+ boarded specialists. You will sharpen your skills—and even learn some new techniques—and explore career options that only VCA can offer, such as continuing education, transfer, specialization, and leadership opportunities.

We offer competitive compensation along with a comprehensive benefits package, including: medical/dental/vision and paid vacation (for F/T employees only), 401(k), generous personal pet care discounts and more!

Please note that this position requires a flexible schedule and the ability to work evenings, weekends, and some holidays.
