Job Description
We are one of the few family owned and operated practices left and bought our hospital wanting to try something different and do the medicine we wanted to do as a team and family. Towards that vision we are fortunate that our clients seek us out for medicine, surgery, diagnostics, dentals (not just vaccines and routine exams) and because of that our licensed technicians get to flex their training muscles daily.--Quite often we hear from other LVTs who feel over-worked (their doctors are seeing 20-22 pets per doctor per day--We see 8-10...) and under-valued never able to employ their skills and training (our LVTs literally pilot the hospital and medical operations working hand-in-hand with the doctors for what's up-coming). We are also a teaching hospital having cultivated multiple recent LVT students who started our hospital with zero experience in the field. Being a mentor and helping maintain the team dynamic is essential so you will help teach and train (when you are ready of course) but it also means you have an entire group of people who have your back including us, the doctor team (of DVMs and a Ph.D.). Our practice is working towards Fear-free and Cat-Friendly certifications so you will be welcome to help us implement these policies that will affect all of our patients and team while also adding to your repertoire in the process. We also highly value education and will seek every possible opportunity to get you continuing education you can use daily and that will help add to what we offer as a hospital. Having said all that, we are hiring a Licensed or in-school Veterinary Technician to do what a licensed veterinary technician should do. Provide surgical and medical support when needed helping to care for cat's (and only cats) and clients that are in need.--The rest you know, surgical and dental prep, drawing and helping draw lab samples, manager pre-medications and injectibles, place IVs, prep and anesthetize for surgery, help manage medical care, perform diagnostics with update ultrasound and digital radiographs (dental and whole body), etc. We offer competitive pay, full benefits (healthcare, continuing education, 401k, exceptional pet care benefits, vacation, holiday pay, etc. And as your skills and training grow we continue to re-evaluate and increase your earnings as appropriate. The bottom line is we want you to do everything a technician should and can do and feel appreciated both financially and emotionally. The really neat thing, if you're experienced or brand-new as a technician or even a technician-student, we have a home for you and will train you where needed. Having said all that (yet again), all you need to succeed in our hospital is a passion for veterinary medicine, an LVT (or soon-to-be) and first and most importantly a passion for cats. Employment Type: Full Time Salary: $24 - $30 Hourly Bonus/Commission: No
