The Clinic offers one experienced Vet Assistant and one Receptionist. Staff needs can be adjusted based on volume.

Must be licensed to practice in illinois, or willing to become licensed in the state.

Salary range is competitive. Milage and hotel negotiable for a full or part-time position.  To apply, please send a letter of interest, resume, salary requirements, and three professional references to Mark Razo , Executive Director. Please, no phone inquiries or walk ins.
