Our immediate need is for 3rd shift nursing staff.
Veterinary Care and Specialty Group (VCSG) is a family and locally owned emergency and referral hospital located in the St. Elmo area of Chattanooga, TN. We are a full service hospital for small animal emergencies. We see a myriad of cases from simple to complex treatments and surgeries. Our facility has the latest diagnostic equipment including ultrasound, digital x-ray, CT, and state-of-the art lab equipment. We have five full-time ER veterinarians on a rotating schedule and trained staff on hand at all times. During the week, we also have a board certified internal medicine veterinarian seeing cases on a referral basis from local veterinarians. Additionally, we have board certified surgeons attending on a rotating basis for soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries.
We are looking for a technician who is compassionate and attentive to both patients and clients.

This line of work is as much about the animals as it is the clients. You must show compassion and understanding to the clients as most are here under dire circumstances with their pets.
Our business is growing, and we need more technicians! VCSG offers exceptional benefits such as health insurance, personal pet discounts, PTO, and much more after a 90 day employment probationary period.
