Exotic Animal Veterinary Center just keeps growing! We have 3 full time and 2 part-time vets, and we are still booked solid. We have just celebrated 7 months in our huge, brand new, state of the art hospital. Now that we have the space, we can hire another associate. Exotic Animal Veterinary Center is the only 100% avian and exotic animal hospital in Pasadena, CA, and one of only a few in the state. Seeing avian and exotic pets exclusively allows us to concentrate on the highest level of veterinary care possible. Our clientele is devoted and caring, and interested in thorough diagnostic work ups, proper treatments, and advanced procedures. It is extremely satisfying to work at a hospital where we are able to treat these special species the way they deserve to be treated and form a gratifying bond with these amazing clients that come from miles away just to see us. Another perk at our hospital is working with our terrific and highly trained staff. Our technicians are very skilled and are comfortable handling, restraining, intubating, performing venipuncture on, caring for and administering treatments to all species. In addition, the technicians are responsible for comprehensive husbandry education and detailed demonstrations for the clients. This frees up the doctors to concentrate on diagnostics and managing cases. We have a fun work environment, and encourage a positive, drama-free, team approach. Exotic Animal Care Center has all the toys: digital radiology, ultrasound, rigid endoscopy, in house laboratory, therapy laser, high quality dental machine, incubators, and anesthetic monitors. We utilize a nearby facility for CT scans and radiation, and use a mobile ultrasound specialist as needed. We currently see approximately 40% rabbits, 40% birds, and 20% reptiles and other animals, including ferrets, pet pigs and goats, wildlife, fish and invertebrates. Each doctor has their special interest, from rabbits to reptiles and wildlife, and the practice helps support and promote associate interests. Our hospital is well known for treating malocclusion and jaw abscesses in rabbits and rodents, and we receive frequent referrals from local vets and rescue groups. Pasadena is located in sunny southern California, nestled between Los Angeles, the mountains, ocean and desert. Our location offers numerous cultural amenities and recreational opportunities nearby. Theater, museums, zoos, Hollywood, rock climbing, camping, surfing, wine tasting, the Tournament of Roses Parade and the Rose Bowl – life in southern California offers the best of everything. If you love caring for avian and exotic pets, bonding with their owners, and being able to provide the best medicine available, this is the hospital for you! Willing to mentor new graduate. Internship trained ideal. Generous benefit package offered including health care, 2 weeks paid vacation, 1 week paid sick time, and CE/dues allowance.
Additional Salary Information: Salary is competitive and based on experience.
