WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT THESE JOB ADS?
Are you challenged at work? Stimulated? Growing? Learning? Respected? Acknowledged? Making a difference? If you’re looking for more, then look no further.
Let us tell you why we’re different than the other “clinics”.
We are a hospital. A place where patients come to get well, stay well, live a full life and end life with comfort and dignity. Our growing team of Veterinarians are working continuously on initiatives that enhance the lives of pets so that the people who love them can enjoy a longer life with them. Our 2019 agenda has our Veterinary Team working on palliative programs, Fear Free certification, an “onboarding” program to help train and support the new members of our team, welcoming our 8th DVM to the hospital and the addition of a specialist working out of our practice!

With this comes the need for people. Great people. People who love what they do and love where they do it. This year, as we celebrate our 10th year in practice, we hold the title of NOW Magazine’s Best Animal Hospital in Toronto! One of our practice owners was recently awarded the OVMA Award of Merit for his outstanding contributions to the profession! We have a 4.8 star rating on Google (not 5-star, because none of us are perfect)! We celebrated our greatness this year with awesome parties, trips to haunted hotels and incentive bonuses.

We believe in our team. We demonstrate this by giving them the opportunity to learn and grow. We support them and embrace their ideas to make us work smarter and have more fun while doing it. Our team of 8 veterinary technicians is supported by 18 medical support team members of assistants, patient representatives and client service stars. Our Veterinary Technicians are learning how to perform ultrasound guided cystos, place nasogastric tubes and how to tape in the perfect urinary catheter. On top of a significant continuing education allowance, we also bring C.E. INTO the hospital so that everyone benefits from a lecture! Last year we had an anesthesiologist, internal medicine specialist, oncologist and social worker give us private sessions to better our skills and ourselves.
We are looking for 2 full time Veterinary Technicians to join our expanding medical team. The ideal addition would display exceptional communication ability, share our passion for outstanding customer service and patient care, take pride in their work and have a thirst for knowledge and self-betterment. This position requires an upbeat, caring and organized personality to keep up with the pace of our practice and high standard of care, and most importantly, the art of thinking on your feet! Every position in our practice shares these attributes, which makes practicing team medicine easier and more enjoyable.
The reward: happy pet owners with happy and healthy pets! Growth. Being in a place where you’re supported in your efforts to make a difference. An emotionally-safe place to work. Hands-free X-rays. Above-industry salary with incentive bonuses. Full medical/dental benefits. Morneau-Shepell Benefits. Uniforms. Discounts for your pets and foster-fails. Friends and Family discounts. There’s more but this ad is crazy-long…
