Northern Door Pet Clinic is looking for a certified veterinary technician or veterinary assistant. For the assistant position we would prefer someone with animal handling experience.
We are a small team of 3 to 4 people depending on the season. Team consists of our veterinarian, receptionist, and 1 to 2 techs/assistants.
Duties would include surgical set up, surgical monitoring, surgical pack prep, animal restraint during exams, drawing up vaccines and medications, and filling prescriptions. General cleaning duties are also required. A certified technician would of course have more responsibility than an assistant.
We tend to be a quiet team. Everyone's duties are a little different so all employees need to be able to work independently. Being able to learn by reading written protocols is a plus.
Our clinic focuses on cats more than dogs at this time so applicant must like and understand cats. A quiet, calm, professional demeanor is a must. We practice low stress handling for both dogs and cats.
We offer paid vacation, discounts on pet care, and help with health insurance premiums after 6 months of employment. After a year we offer retirement benefits as well.
Salary will be dependent on experience, skills and licensing.
