Welcome to a different kind of associate veterinarian position, and a different kind of animal hospital. Passionate Paws Animal Hospital is a modern, all digital, privately-held practice that opened in late 2016 to be the first in South Charlotte to provide integrative pet healthcare to deliver the most treatment options for dogs and cats to help them stay in the best of health. In 2019, Passionate Paws Animal Hospital became a Fear Free Certified Practice, 1 out 4 within 100 miles. Through its unique blend of eastern and western medicine, innovative hospital design, exclusive focus on pet parents, expanded pet services such as grooming, community outreach programs, and award winning professionals, the hospital is transforming the pet healthcare industry.
Passionate Paws Animal Hospital has won the 2017 and 2018 Charlotte Media Group’s Best of The Weekly for Best Veterinarian and Best Groomer, the Union County Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Rising Star award, voted Nextdoor Neighborhood Favorite for three years in a row, Dr. Bonilla recently won the Charlotte Media Group’s 2019 Rising Star award, and we have over 100 5-Star Facebook and Google reviews since opening. Passionate Paws Animal Hospital’s success is driven by a commitment to delivering the best healthcare experience for both pets and pet parents.
We are looking for an energetic, engaging, and charismatic veterinarian to expand upon our services, continue to provide the very best in medical care, create long-lasting client relationships, deliver unparalleled client experiences, and strengthen our brand among the communities we serve. In the process, together we will take our hospital to the next level, shake up the industry, and unleash your true potential.
The right candidate must have a strong interest and understanding of integrative medicine and possess, or have a willingness to pursue, at least one of the following certifications — acupuncture, chiropractic, canine rehabilitation, pain management, herbal therapy, or food therapy. While we are looking for a full-time associate, we are willing to consider part-time for the right candidate. We are always eager to provide new lines of services for our clients, so if you have a strong interest or experience in other areas of vet medicine we do not currently offer such as ultrasound or exotics, we would be very open to discuss.
Applicants must send a one to two minute video (along with cover letter, resume, and references) telling us something about yourself that we couldn’t read in a resume and describe why you believe you would be a good fit for our hospital.
Passionate Paws Animal Hospital can be summed up in one word: passion. We are driven by our passion for animals, animal healthcare, pet parents, and one another. Our mission is to focus our passions to provide superior integrative healthcare to the surrounding pet community, deliver outstanding client service, enhance the mutual health benefits of the human-animal bond, and create a supportive culture that continues to grow our passions. We believe that to provide pets with the best healthcare with the most options, we must take an integrative approach using Fear Free methodologies. By combining the best of conventional Western medicine such as highly sophisticated diagnostic tools and advanced dental and surgical care with scientifically proven complementary treatments such as acupuncture, chiropractic, physical therapy, herbal therapy, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), we can design unique pet healthcare plans for our clients. Pets are the subjects of our care but pet parents are whom we serve. We make it our priority to always ensure our pet parents receive outstanding client service at every interaction with us be it over the phone, in person, or online. A happy pet parent... means a healthy pet. The bond between pet and person is unlike any other. It is friendship. It is companionship. It is therapy. It is a co-worker. It is pure. It is joy. It is unconditional love. It means so many things to people. This is a sacred bond that we must respect, foster, and enhance for the benefit of both pet and person. Passionate Paws strives to create a culture of:• Passion – Be passionate in all you do.• Empowerment – Know you can solve the problem at hand.• Learning – Push the boundaries of your knowledge.• Education – Teach others.• Innovation – Do not settle for complacency. • Community – Reach out to those around us.• Respect - Our pets, clients, environment, and one another.• Fun – Remember, this is the greatest job in the world.
