Seeking Small Animal DVM Committed to Exceptional Client Relationships
Desert Tails Animal Clinic
Location: Scottsdale, Arizona
Type: Full Time
Required Education: DVM or equivalent
Internal Number: Desert Tails
A move to Scottsdale promises abundant adventure, from vibrant outdoor activities and sports to a thriving downtown and arts/culture scene. Scottsdale has a reputation as a travel destination, but it’s also a city full of residents who really love their pets. As Scottsdale’s continues to grow (by two feet and four paws at a time), Desert Tails Animal Clinic is looking to grow too!
We are a full-service, companion animal practice seeking an early career veterinarian or experienced DVM who’s ready to help elevate our services.
How you’ll make an impact:
Partner with clients: Aric Remen has built solid relationships with our community and is appreciated for his “country doctor” approach. As our second doctor, you’ll ensure our clients continue to feel heard, understand the why behind procedures, and know their pets are treated like family at our clinic.
Bond with the Desert Tails team: We have a welcoming and inclusive team that genuinely enjoys working together. We’ll do everything in our power to help you feel at home from your very first day.
Practice excellent medicine: Our hospital is a full-service, paper-lite practice equipped with digital radiology, cold laser therapy, endoscope, ultrasound, and more. You’ll utilize our tools to provide excellent services to small animals.
How we’ll support you:
At Desert Tails Animal Clinic, we believe the best way to provide compassionate care, personalized attention, and extraordinary service is by putting relationships—with our clients, patients, team, and community—at the heart of everything we do.
We are a small team of talented veterinary professionals who treat each pet as if they were our own
We have fun while working! You will hear a lot of laughter from our team members throughout the day
We’ll support your career growth and encourage your continued development as a veterinarian
We provide a competitive set of benefits designed with your work/life balance in mind
Our benefits include:
Sign-on and relocation assistance available for eligible candidates
Flexible scheduling and PTO
Medical, dental, and vision for you and your dependents (with HSA option)
Professional development assistance
Structured mentorship program for early career veterinarians
Guidance from a talented DVM Advisory Board
Medical freedom to practice skills you’re proficient in or explore areas you’d like to learn
“Pack Gives Back” charity donation or sponsorship to a cause you care about
When we said Scottsdale residents love their pets, we weren’t joking!
Greater Phoenix often makes “Best of” lists in terms of dog-friendliness and according to Booking.com, Scottsdale is the fifth most dog-friendly city for those traveling with their canine companions! It’s no wonder we’re so fast-paced and in need of another DVM!
Aside from petting all the dogs, in your down time, Scottsdale is full of fun adventures!
We’re swimming with pools: There are 120+ resort pools in the area. A lot of them have day passes for community access too!
The Salt River: a popular destination for paddle boarding and spotting wild horses!
A sizzling restaurant scene: Delicious food, fun cocktails, and abundant happy hours make for fun Friday nights and weekend celebrations
Vivacious nightlife: Are you in the mood for a dive bar, nightclub, live music, wine bar, or beer garden?
Road trip anyone? Some of Arizona’s favorite landmarks are only 2 hours away—like the red rocks of Sedona, the forests of Payson, and the slopes of Flagstaff! Plus, we’re only four hours from the beaches of Rocky Point Mexico and under five hours to San Diego’s Mission Beach!
Family fun: From dive-in movies (like the drive-in, but in a pool!) to concerts in the park and tiki parties, there’s plenty of kid-friendly and adult-only fun in Scottsdale
