WORK & PLAY IN THE HEART OF THE KOOTENAYS!
Are you a Registered Veterinary Technologist looking for a change of pace? Perhaps you’ve envisioned yourself living the quintessential Kootenay lifestyle, but you’ve yet to locate the perfect community.
We are a Mixed Animal practice that has been serving Creston and the surrounding rural communities for nearly 50 years. Established in 1973 by local legend, the late Dr. David Perrin, author of the “Don’t Turn Your Back in the Barn: Adventures of a Country Vet” book series, we are proud to have carried on Dr. Perrin’s legacy by committing to a high standard in ethical and compassionate medicine. Our facility is fully equipped with an in-house laboratory and pharmacy, digital radiology (including a dental and portable unit), medical-grade laser, ultrasound (in-house and portable) as well as a full array of large and small animal surgical equipment.
We challenge you to practice your interpersonal, technical, and surgical skills; be prepared to immediately impact the health and well-being of the local animals and our community. We serve six major dairies in the Creston Valley for routine herd health, as well as equine and hobby farms, and a large variety of small animal species. Additionally, we are nestled between the steep scarps of the Selkirk and Purcell mountains and are anchored to the southern arm of Kootenay Lake by the Frog Bear Conservation Area. The proximity to this corridor makes for exceptional wildlife viewing and a diverse caseload. Enjoy everything the Kootenays offers; thriving arts, culture, and outdoor adventure experiences, knowing that team members' workload is shared evenly by maintaining a rotating schedule. Our team is committed to a positive environment with a strong focus on learning and professional growth. We offer exceptional mentorship and a generous CE allowance; thus, we encourage new graduates to apply!
