VCA Health Associates.
VCA Health Associates is seeking to add a new team member to our work-family. We are a fast-paced small animal clinic that primarily sees dogs and cats, but would be open to growing our exotic clientele.
We have an even mix of seasoned staff members, with over half of our staff being with the clinic for more than 10 years, and new hires. We have 2 large referral centers and multiple emergency clinics readily available for our pets with more challenging needs. No emergency duty is required.
In clinic, we have available: digital radiography, full body and dental, ultrasound, Cryopen, Tonopen, in-house chemistries and a strong working relationship with Antech. We also routinely utilize Telemedicine. We have multiple Cardell units which allow us to monitor our anesthetized patients for HR, ETCO2, SPO2, blood pressure and continuous ECG. We utilize warm water circulating blankets and have multiple Baer huggers for temperature regulation. We have multiple IV pumps for hospitalized patients. Our surgery suite is well stocked and capable of expansion for a candidate with strong surgical interests. We also utilize a boarded mobile surgeon when necessary. We are a paper-light clinic that utilizes EMR.
Our services include: preventative health care and education, routine and advanced soft tissue surgeries, internal medicine, radiology- including thoracic and abdominal ultrasound, dentistry, boarding, and grooming. We have a strong working relationship with the local adoption agencies and Humane Society, offering Free First Exams to new adoptees to build both a client base and a strong Human Animal Veterinarian bond.
Our facility includes separate dog and cat waiting areas, 8 exam rooms, a well stocked pharmacy, multiple treatment tables (wet and dry) and a large surgical suite.
We are open 7:30-7 Monday through Thursday, 7:30-5:30 on Friday and 8:30-4:00 on Saturday. We are an even mix of appointments and walk-ins. We perform surgeries Monday through Friday.
Outside of work, you have the amazing city of San Antonio and the surrounding Hill Country to play in. We are also just a few short hours from the coast. There is ALWAYS something to do. But, if you need to head out for the weekend, the airport is international, and just minutes away from the clinic. We are situated in the Northeast quadrant of San Antonio. We are located within the Northeast ISD, which is a high ranking school district in Texas, or just a short drive from smaller communities like Cibolo, Bulverde, and New Braunfels. All of which, are great places to raise a family.
We are open to both new graduates and experienced Veterinarians, but they must be personable, willing to communicate, have a strong work ethic and have a positive attitude. Mentoring is available. Having bilingual capabilities is a plus, but not a requirement.
Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience level. 401K, health benefits, life insurance, Paid Time Off and a reasonable CE allowance available. CE opportunity also includes VCA sponsored CE at no cost to the veterinarian as well as annual CE provided by our local referral centers, also at no cost to the veterinarian. Lab coats are provided.
Please feel free to contact us if you have additional questions or would be interested in coming for a visit.
