ER Veterinarian Needed

PETS Hospital was founded by two vet school classmates with the primary mission of delivering an exceptional customer experience. They were frustrated with emergency and specialty hospitals that don't take care of their customers and rDVMS, so they decided to do things differently. Our goal was to create a “warm and fuzzy” ER that doesn't feel like a typical emergency room.   The experience starts with freshly baked cookies and coffee in the lobby, TV's with Netflix in every room, a cool and calm color scheme, and a staff that was hired based on personality and the love for the job.

We have created a culture where our core values are always first priority: We are Respectful, we offer Exceptional Customer Experience, we Raise the Bar, we have Integrity, and we Don’t Panic!

We have just built a NEW facility adjacent to our ER suite, that is designed to be custom outfitted for specialty services.  We are looking to add an Emergency/Urgent Care Veterinarian

This is a wonderful opportunity to:

  • Work with a highly skilled staff that is compassionate, motivated and collaborative

  • Competitive Salary with production and a full benefits package

  • Opportunity to work with an awesome bunch of rDVMS

  • Work with an excellent and growing specialty team that includes a cardiologist and surgeon.

  • Work/Life balance matter to you? It does to us!

  • Great benefits including 401k, health insurance, CE stipend, and PTO 

  • We care about your mental and physical health so we now offer a Wellness Plan stipend that can be used for athletic gear, workout equipment, gym membership and more!

  • Always local and independent, NOT CORPORATE!

We need someone who is energetic, excited and wants to be part of an amazing team!

Interested individuals please send your cover letter & resume to OM@petsurgentcare.com
