Dream Job Available!
Valparaiso Animal Hospital is searching for new veterinary talent to help care for our wonderful patients! We are a progressive privately-owned small animal hospital where you can use your knowledge and pursue your interests to your heart's content.
A great, highly experienced and dedicated support staff means that you can focus on "doctor only" jobs, and trust that everything else will be taken care of by your awesome co-workers. Our staff to doctor ration is 5-7:1, with approximately 50% of the team having emergency room experience. We have 4 registered technicians on staff, and a tuition reimbursement program in place to ensure that our staff is supported in continuing to grow and learn.
We have recently moved into our new 6500 s.f. hospital. In it, you will find EMR, digital full-body and dental rads, ultrasound, in-house lab, video otoscope, tonopen, electrosurgical unit, therapy laser, retinoscopy, etc. We have an on-site dog trainer, and are expanding our physiotherapy/rehab program. Currently, we do minimal boarding and grooming.
We are fortunate enough to have 3 local emergency facilities. This ensures that our patients are well-cared for while we are able to re-charge our batteries and live a good quality of life. Our hospital is located in a thriving university town, approximately 45 minutes from Chicago and 20 minutes from the beautiful Indiana Dunes State Park (recently voted the USA's 7th best state park). Beautiful sandy beaches and a hopping nightlife are equally available in our area. We have a VERY low cost of living and excellent public schools. Unemployment in our area is very low (job opportunities for your spouse abound here, or the commute into Chicago is facilitated by easy access to public transportation).
We are looking for a kind, enthusiastic, fun-loving associate to round out our team! Full- or part-time position available. Enthusiastic mentoring available. Generous (and flexible) compensation package offered. Need help with moving expenses?--sign on bonus. Family live far away?---extended time off available. Health/Life/Dental/Vision/Disability insurance needed?---we'll get 'er done!
