Team work is very important to us! Empowering every individual to succeed in their position here is our goal. We strive to do this by providing mentorship and open, effective communication. We are a local award-winning, industry leader and always aim to offer compassionate and comprehensive care to our clients. Through mentorship and support, we encourage you to be the veterinary professional you dream to be!

What Cypress View Veterinary Clinic Can Offer You

We strive to provide an inclusive, understanding, and supportive workplace culture for our staff.

Our general practice is proud to be an award-winning, industry leader with an extensive rehabilitation department that includes therapeutic lasers and an underwater treadmill. Because Medicine Hat doesn’t have a local emergency clinic, we get to manage many interesting cases. Every day is new and exciting. If you are interested in elective surgery, soft tissue surgery, orthopedic surgery, ophthalmic surgery, internal medicine, dental surgery, wellness, and rehabilitation, while in a supportive, fun-loving, team environment, we hope you will consider us.

A typical day for us looks like:

  • 3-8 Elective Surgeries
  • 2 Complete Dental Procedures
  • 3-10 In-Clinic Medical Cases
  • 20-30 Urgent and Non-Urgent Medical Cases
  • 30-50 Vaccination Appointments
  • 6-8 Rehabilitation Appointments
  • 10-30 Patients Requiring Lab Work
  • 1-2 Nutritional Consultations

Weekly, we usually also have an orthopedic and/or exploratory surgery.

We are highly motivated and look forward to mentoring international graduates of veterinary and veterinary technician/technologist programs that have passed their NAVLE or VTNE, respectively. 

We can help accommodate successful candidates with association registration, find accommodations, and help prepare veterinarians for their Clinical Proficiency Examinations. We also offer several employee benefits. 

Medicine Hat is the Sunniest City in Canada!

Medicine Hat is known as the “oasis of the prairies” and is also Canada’s sunniest city. We are probably most well known for our “World’s Largest Teepee” but also the home of many notable people including Terri Clark (country music singer), Gordie Johnson (front man of Big Sugar), MacKenzie Porter (singer and actress), Trevor Linden (former professional hockey player), Sage Watson (Olympic track athlete), and several more. Our city parks and river valley offer endless activities to enjoy. We have the lowest combined tax rate in Canada and the lowest utility costs in Alberta. Medicine Hat is a great place to raise children. Staff members agree that the whole city of Medicine Hat feels like your community, it isn’t limited to just your neighborhood. You can literally drive anywhere in Medicine Hat in 20 minutes. So, short commute times mean more you time!
