Our work atmosphere is generally calm and relaxed and we all get along great and love joking around and having fun while at work.

We are open 8am-6pm Monday-Friday and 8am-4pm on Saturday. We do not over book our doctors so when your shift is over, you are out the door! We do not offer grooming or boarding, so any pets that are in the practice are hospitalized (think rarely barking dogs all day!). In a given day, a technician at MVP will go in with appointments to get a history and TPR for the doctor and then perform any blood draws, treatments or diagnostics needed. The technicians also start the medical record notes. The technicians assist the doctors with cytologies, in-house diagnostics, bloodwork interpretation and follow-ups as delegated.

Dispenses and administer medications, vaccines, serums and treatments as prescribed by veterinarians. Places IV catheters.

We offer great benefits (100% health, 100% dental, 401k, great PTO, bonuses) and have a great work-life balance (we close at 6pm during the week!). The job will likely include working on average two Saturdays a month. We all rotate Saturday shifts. Must have at least 4 years of experience in small animal medicine.
