Registered Veterinary Technologist
Just holding cats and dogs for exams… NO WAY! Our technicians are encouraged to work to their fullest potential and find their passion! We have 4 flourishing departments for our technicians and endless possibilities to pursue your interests in small animal veterinary care. Our surgery department sees many surgeries including elective, soft tissue, orthopedic, exploratory, emergency and cosmetic. Our dental department boasts a fully equipped dental suite including a brand new digital x-ray machine. Our medical department is a bit of a catch all for sedated procedures, IV fluid therapy, hospitalized patient care, transfusion medicine, bloodwork and other lab work, and so much more. Our newest department is our rehab department. Under the leadership of a certified veterinarian you can help pets feel better with our underwater treadmill, therapeutic lasers, stretching and range of motion exercises.
We believe in positive team work and mentorship here. Whether you are a seasoned tech, fresh out of school, or needing a practicum site, we hope that you will consider us!
Customer Care Specialist
Our customer care specialists are considered to be the front line of our team! They are the face our clients are greeted by and the voice on our phones. They are individuals that are selling clients food, giving treats to our canine patients, and making the hardest days of owning pets as pain-free as possible. They are superheroes, or at least we think so. If customer care and the love of pets interest you, this could be the career for you!
Duties include booking appointments, receiving payments, data entry, account maintenance, customer care, working with our app, and much more!
Veterinary Technologist Assistant
Our veterinary technology assistants are an integral part of our team! In recent years we have found vet tech assistants to be an incredibly valuable addition to our veterinary care team. They assist in every department and work along side our veterinarians, veterinary technologists, and customer care specialists. Just as our vet techs are enabled to do all they can do, so are our vet tech assistants. Some tasks that our vet tech assistants perform are assisting in patient examinations, surgical suite and patient preparation, surgical supply sterilization, hospitalized patient care, rehab patient handling and care, etc. Experience and formal education vary for this position. In Alberta, this position can be filled by someone with no experience or formal education and would allow for on-the-job training. An individual that has pursued formal education in a veterinary assistant, or vet tech assistant program would be a great fit as well!
