Job Description

We are looking for an intelligent and friendly people-person to shine as a veterinary assistant at La Jolla Veterinary Hospital!

This position requires the ability to learn quickly and retain an abundance of information while working in a fast paced environment. We are a "paperless" practice so computer skills are required and you must be extremely detail oriented. Your ability to "wow" clients will be the key to your success. This person MUST be enthusiastic and MUST be a superstar. If you are anything less than an incredibly cheerful person, you need not apply. This is a full-time position that requires an individual to work four ten hour shifts and you must have a flexible schedule. Experience is beneficial but not required. Avimark software experience is very beneficial.

As a veterinary assistant, you will be expected to:

  • Provide assistance to our Veterinary Technicians and Veterinarians
  • Greet patients and their owners as they arrive and show them to an examining room
  • Take pets’ weight and other vital signs upon arrival
  • Provide patient restraint during procedures and examinations
  • Feed, bathe and care for patients who stay in our facility
  • Provide assistance during radiology procedures
  • Clean and maintain the exam and treatment rooms
  • Prepare instruments and medications as directed by veterinary personnel
  • Calm and soothe anxious patients
  • Adhere to hospital’s safety and wellness regulations

We provide opportunities for growth, competitive wages within our industry, benefits such as superior healthcare options and retirement plans.

Compensation based on experience.
