We love new grads! Come join one of the most progressive small animal general practices in California and experience amazing mentoring. We focus on teamwork with a positive and encouraging culture. We expect our team to provide hospitality to our clients - not just service. We expect excellence with humility in all you do - from medicine to animal handling and all human interactions. In return you will be treated well and have an amazing support team behind you!
Animal Care Clinic was named one of the top 5 AAHA accredited practices in North America and is Fear Free oriented and Cat Friendly Certified.

We have all the expected bells and whistles - digital radiography and dental radiography, ultrasound, therapeutic laser, tonopen, in-house Idexx lab.... and we are good at using them! You will be adept with all of them also!
This position will begin with formal mentoring - shadowing our current DVM's in all they do, followed by our current DVM's shadowing you. As we transition you to seeing patients alone, we will always be right there to answer questions and provide support. Once you are up to speed, you can expect to work 4 weekdays and every other Saturday (shorter day). There is no after hours emergency work. You will be expected to participate in all aspects of doctoring: wellness exams, sick and urgent care cases, surgery, dentistry and advanced diagnostics. We also expect our doctors to teach: Animal Care Clinic has an extensive staff training program and our doctors are vital to it. We will mentor you and then you will mentor staff members!
We offer a base salary with a generous production based bonus with $3500/year continuing education, Simple IRA, Health Insurance, all licenses/dues/etc. and paid time off.
