We are a 100% avian and exotics hospital in Southern California. We have 4 full time and 1 part-time vets, and we are so busy we need to hire another associate. 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. With 4 full time vets we have 2-3 doctors working each shift, which means that there is always another exotics-experienced veterinarian to discuss cases with. Working four 10hr shifts allows enough time off for a personal life. 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 Veterinary 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 and rodents, 40% birds, and 20% reptiles and other animals, including ferrets, pet pigs and goats, wildlife, fish and invertebrates.
Benefits include generous signing bonus, medical and dental insurance, CE/Dues allowance, paid vacation and paid CE days, and discounted pet services. We encourage and support special interests and CE and will cover the costs of ultrasound training, acupuncture certification and specialty board certification.
1 year experience or Internship preferred. New graduates welcome.
