Do you want to practice good medicine and be an active part of creating a positive and fun culture? Do you love learning, trying new things, and are not afraid to take a few risks to create something new? Are you interested in hospital ownership someday? Then Colony Veterinary Hospital is the place for you!
Colony Veterinary Hospital in La Jolla CA is looking for an experienced veterinarian to work in our small animal hospital. We have the normal “bells & whistles” as well as cold laser therapy, a urine sediment reader, & EMR with Avimark. We also work with mobile specialists & have excellent referral hospitals within 5-10 minutes of our hospital (so no on-call or after-hours required). We have a “non-corporate” mindset, and we encourage self-care and work-life-balance. Our hospital’s purpose is to help protect the love that pets bring their people each day.
Our competitive benefits package includes:
$100-140k base (range based on skills) plus production (our last associate was tracking
to make over $190k).
Licensing & professional dues
CE budget - this is potentially unlimited.
Generous PTO & paid sick leave.
We are looking for a veterinarian who has a great bedside manner and can provide exceptional medical care. Our ideal candidate will not only share in our values but be willing to help lead others towards our vision as well. Our leadership team helps support our team members with regular meetings and effective communication.
"I would not be where I am without you and the team. It's going to be very difficult to find anywhere with ownership and work culture like Colony, and it truly breaks my heart to have to leave." Dr. Sarina Pacifici (UC Davis 2020)
We would prefer a candidate who has at least 3 years of experience, or is internship trained. We are open to supporting growth if you have an interest in development your skills further. An interest in exotics is a plus as one our locations is well known for this.
A Thousand Ways To Care
We believe in providing gold-standard veterinary care to every dog and cat we see. But more than that, we believe in finding ways to make a difference. This is veterinary care reimagined. Because love deserves no less.
A Thousand Ways To Make A Difference
There is magic in the love shared with a pet. The way they make you feel. The memories you share. The way they look at you like you're their whole world. Pets fill our lives with meaning, protectiveness, and love. We understand what it feels like to have a piece of your heart intertwined with a pet. We care for every dog and cat we see like we would our own. We protect them like we would our own. And because we care so deeply, we believe in making a difference in the lives they share with their families in every way we can. From teaching, to showing kindness, to making sure pets have gold-standard veterinary care at every stage of their life...there are a thousand ways to make a difference. We'll always show at least a few. We are animal lovers to our core. It's who we were as children. It's why we have dedicated our lives to becoming the best clinicians we can be. The love shared with a pet is precio...us. And we've been training our entire lives to protect it.
From Their Eyes
We believe in reimagining the way that pets experience their trip to the vet. We have designed the experience from their eyes. From a treat machine in the lobby, to puppy popsicles, to peanut butter at every turn...we work to create a utopia for dogs and cats. A utopia filled with squeaky toys, laser pointers, and gentleness. Creating this positive, welcoming, joyful environment helps pets live longer, happier lives. Pet parents feel better about taking their pets in, pets feel less stressed during examinations, and we are able to practice even better medicine. Because our clients and patients deserve it.
360 Degrees Of Care
We believe in reimagining what a veterinary practice can be. We take our time to understand the depth and context of the relationship clients share with their pets. We build a 360 degree view of how our patients fit into our clients lives. That way, we can be a central hub to provide them with guidance, resources, and everything else they need to live an even better life with their pets. Every single things we do is about protecting the life that our patients and clients share. We approach medicine in a deeply collaborative way. We find the little ways to make a difference, educate about different ways to help pets live longer, happier, more harmonious lives by their family's side, and no matter what life throws their way, we are always here for them through it all.
A Brighter Tomorrow
We believe in innovation, empathy, and thinking deeply about how to build the future of veterinary medicine. We do it because we believe, so deeply, in helping pets live the longest, happiest life possible. Whether it's rethinking the entire visit, incorporating cutting-edge technology, being at the vanguard of medical knowledge and protocols, or thinking more broadly about the role that we can play in our patients lives...we are always working to grow, broaden, and deepen the impact we make.
Because to us, pets and their parents are family. And in a thousand ways, we will work to protect the love they share.
