We are a locally owned, small animal hospital known in our area for practicing high-end, progressive medicine with a commitment to animal welfare and positive outcomes. As you'd expect from such a hospital, we offer a full diagnostic lab, ultrasound, computerization, digital rads, high end dental, etc. If we don't have something you need to practice your best, we'll gladly advance our services with your interests in mind! What sets us apart is our desire to mentor and grow a long-term career, full benefits, excellent salary, all aimed at allowing reduced stress and ensuring the best work-life balance possible. We understand this year in particular has changed how we as a profession practice, and have a firm belief that our staff wellness is the foundation of a healthy work atmosphere and ultimately benefits our patients as well! We're all a team here and take each staff member's needs into account.
A position at Westside Vet gives amazing flexibility to see a full spectrum of pet wellness exams all the way to urgent and interesting medical cases to the doctor's personal discretion and comfort level, yet has an overnight or emergency referral option nearby for those cases that are beyond the clinician's time, abilities, or medical constraints. We would be ecstatic to take on a doctor with more critical care or other specialty experience to further enhance our offerings and comprehensive patient care! We want someone with comprehensive goals, eager to help pets in a nose-to-tail fashion, and ready to push medicine in a direction focused much more on preventative care, than reactive care without a business model forcing wellness plans or cookie-cutter medicine into your personal ability to practice what you love.
