We celebrate best practices and are not shy to try new things, most recently introducing stem cell therapy and digital thermal imaging to our roster. Along with theriogenology, rehabilitation and chiropractic services in-house, our Western medicine is complimented by Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture for the times when clients wish to pursue these methodologies. Being an AAHA-accredited practice means we are constantly striving to be better, with clear protocols and progressive culture. With a fear-free mindset and emphasis on client relationships, we are lucky to have a compliant client base that benefits from our extensive scope of services.
Our ideal candidate takes pride in their compassionate client communication skills, and understands the importance of preventative medicine and client education. This role will focus primarily on anesthesia, lab work, surgery, nursing, and general patient care.

Participation in the on call/weekend/evening rotation is required.
