The office is open from 8 AM to 5 PM on weekdays and 8 to 12 PM on Saturdays. We are also covered by two excellent, full-service, 24-7 emergency clinics. Associates work alternating Saturday mornings, but always have a weekday off, so the work week alternates between four and four-and-a-half days.

Our clientele includes many loyal long-term companion animal owners from a suburban setting.
We will provide a competitive salary commensurate with experience, health care enrollment through one of the major local carriers, disability insurance, paid vacation, major holidays and continuing education. All employees get pet care at hospital cost. We also will pay fees for licenses and dues including AVMA PLIT coverage, VIN membership and a uniform allowance.
