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.  We are only interested in individuals with a cheerful personality who are eager to serve our clients and their pets.  All employees must be prepared to dress professionally, and treat one another, the doctors, our clients, and their pets with compassion and respect.  Although experience is helpful, personality and trainability is most important.  All employees are expected to assist in cleaning and maintaining the building - we do not have a separate cleaning staff.  All employees must be fit and able to do physical work.  All employees are expected to jump in and help one another wherever necessary or possible, and all employees should be "self starters," seeking ways to improve the hospital during our rare "slow" times.  All applicants should be computer literate.

 

Unfortunately, we do not hire current clients.  We apologize for this inconvenience.
