Veterinary Assistant to join our AAHA-accredited, multi-doctor practice in Woodbridge Virginia.
We’re looking for an experienced practitioner of high-quality veterinary medicine and patient care; a devoted team player who thrives in a fast paced demanding environment; a compassionate self-motivated multi-tasker who interacts well with clients, doctors and nursing staff; an individual who derives satisfaction from a job well done. If this describes you, then we want you on our team! ICU experience is required. Emergency veterinary experience is a big plus.
In this position, you will be supporting our Doctors and Technician team. Duties will include obtaining a client history, obtaining vital signs, maintaining medical records and assisting in client education; performing laboratory work and diagnostic imaging, and providing compassionate nursing care as well as a "home away from home" for boarded and hospitalized pets. First and second year veterinary technician students, with experience, are invited to apply.
As a member of the VCA family, your passion for medicine and compassion for pets and people is matched with a commitment to your professional growth. You will enjoy exposure to a diverse and stimulating caseload and employ the most advanced imaging and monitoring tools. You will sharpen your skills—and even learn some new techniques—and explore career options that only VCA can offer, such as continuing education, transfer, specialization, and leadership opportunities.
We offer competitive pay along with a great benefits package, including weekend and overnight differential pay, medical/dental/vision and paid vacation (for F/T employees only), 401(k), uniforms, generous personal pet care discounts, and more.
Must have a flexible schedule and be available to work evenings, weekends, and holidays.
