Gentle Vet Animal Hospital

Do you have a Certified Veterinary Technician's License? (Yep you MUST have that.) Do you like being trusted? Would you like a boss that lets you do all the things techs/nurses should do? Do you like exotics and wildlife? Do you want to work with someone who thinks veterinary staff members are underpaid and is working to fix that? Do you like autonomy? Do you want a work environment where we are joking one minute then serious and focused the next? Well you should check us out. Are you looking for the perfect job? We aren't perfect so keep looking but if you answered yes to the rest of the questions keep reading!

As a brand new practice owner, I am trying to foster the following culture: If I take good care of you, you'll take good care of my clients/patients. Does that sound good? Well, read on, please.

I'm searching for full-time technicians to come to help us out. Many clinics pay lip service to let technicians "use their skills." I take that literally! We pride ourselves in allowing nurses/techs to be... well nurses/techs. I'm far too lazy to do your work so if you like anesthetizing, ultrasounding, performing 75% of a dental procedure, educating clients and taking care of patients to the best of your ability. Give us a try. We also service a local zoo and sanctuary. Exotic skills are not required but you will be required to work with them and learn. We are placing technicians first in preparation for a new doctor. If all goes well we'll be building a new hospital soon so there is plenty of opportunity for growth.  

Responsibilities

You'll be asked to do many many things but here are the big ones:

  • Taking histories and preparing clients for exam room engagement, then restraining and invoicing.
  • Taking care of anesthesia start to finish from the first blood draw to the last minute of recovery.
  • Caring for exotic pets including venipuncture, restraint educating and anesthetizing.
  • If you have interest in other aspects of running a hospital we would love the help (one tech handles training, one handles social media, another handles food inventory, etc.)
  • We work hard to make sure you get to use the skills you went to school for and we expect everyone to treat each other as a valued professional team member, with friendly banter and fun mixed in.
  • You have to be willing to be cross-trained and willing to become a part of the culture.

Qualifications

  • You must have a certification as a technician or nurse. We'll consider non-credentialed assistants but certified individuals will get preference.
  • This field works with animals and you should love them and want to work with them, but also we serve people and each other. If you are only in it for the animals and not your clients and co-workers, you won't fit in.
  • You must be able to understand that we try to stick to a schedule but unexpected longer days are just a part of the job.
  • You have to be flexible and understanding of the failings and mistakes of a new practice owner.

Compensation
$14 - $19 hourly
