Are you considering your next career move in veterinary medicine? We are looking for a dedicated, passionate and fun-loving veterinarian to join our well-established team and hope that you will connect with us to learn more about us and our professional family.
Our full-service practice is focused on creating a comfortable and calm environment that is stress-free for our animal patients and their human caretakers. We will take both emergency cases (during operating hours) and less urgent cases involving surgical and dental issues. We promote preventative care and overall animal health through client education.
We are looking to invite an additional DVM to our team, ideally someone with strong communication skills and a passion for providing high quality care in a general practice that includes primarily canine and feline patients. Someone who enjoys a fast pace and thrives when multi-tasking will be an excellent fit, whether an established professional or a recent grad; we can accommodate both.
We offer a highly competitive compensation package including extended benefits and a CE allowance. You will find all of the equipment and resources here you’ll need and a dynamic and experienced support staff to assist. This is an environment where individuals can learn and grow and we make every effort to ensure that our team members reach their professional goals and enjoy a work-life balance that allows them take advantage of all that the area offers.
About the Area
LVH is located in Penticton, BC, in the heart of the Okanagan Valley. If you dislike hot, sun-filled summers and mild winters this is not the place for you! A summer (and all-season) destination for decades, Penticton sits between two beach-bordered lakes surrounded by beautiful scenery, ample outdoor activities and hiking/biking trails.

The veterinary profession isn’t like any other—it’s the only field predicated on the love of a patient who can’t tell you what’s hurting and can only look to you for help. It takes a special kind of person to do that job, or the jobs supporting that job. NVA doesn’t create those special people—we find them, cultivate them, and give them resources and opportunities to do what only they can do. Whether treating patients, managing a pet resort, or serving hospitals from NVA’s Support Center, NVA’s animal professionals are caring people, united by a love of animals. NVA is proud to honor that connection and is committed to serving our team members by providing them with the tools, support, and freedom to be the professionals they’ve always wanted to be.
