Exciting PT or FT opportunity at Applewood Animal Hospital, a beautiful privately owned small animal hospital in Paradise Valley, AZ, an upscale suburb of Phoenix. Only 3 ½ years old and rapidly growing, we offer all the bells and whistles (digital radiography, digital dental radiography, ultrasound, Class IV cold laser, in-house CBC, chemistry and coag, Impromed paperless software, etc.) but more important we provide you with the best support staff available: enthusiastic, dedicated, mature, kind, fun and above all exceptionally talented. A beautiful boarding and grooming facility share the multi-acre property but the businesses are run as separate entities, allowing us to focus on doing what we are trained to do: provide top-quality medicine in a comfortable, professional and friendly atmosphere. Our clients are committed to pursuing the best treatment for their pets (and are willing to pay for it!) and we are committed to providing it: at Applewood you can practice the type of medicine you’ve dreamed of. In-house support from a board-qualified mobile surgeon who works out of our hospital provides a level of expertise not typically found in a general practice. Candidates with special areas of expertise or interests are particularly encouraged to apply.
No emergency or after-hour calls. Ideally this will be a PT position but can be FT for the right candidate. A minimum of three years experience is preferred, with a commitment to client communication, confidence in working up and diagnosing cases, comfort with standard GP surgery, AAHA-level recordkeeping and a desire to remain current in the field. Applewood Animal Hospital is located in the most affluent and well-educated town in Arizona, and our clientele reflect that demographic.He/she must be able to work independently; we are not currently able to mentor new grads. We will be seeking fear-free certification for the hospital, so enthusiasm for working within those parameters is important.
We recognize the demands of this career and understand that a pleasant and supportive work environment is critical to a a good work-life balance. Accompanying the positive work environment are generous salary and benefits.
