We're seeking a full-time mixed animal technician to join our practice in south central NJ (about 45 minutes east of Philadelphia and 45 minutes west of the shore). There are two office locations- a small animal office in Mount Holly, NJ and a large animal facility a mile up the road in Eastampton, NJ. We see a highly varied multi-species caseload with about 60% small animal and 40% large animal/equine. The vast majority of our large animal caseload is pet/backyard farm livestock vs. production animals. Currently we have four full-time veterinarians- two doctors see primarily small animal cases and two doctors are strictly large animal/equine. One of these veterinarians is a board-certified large animal internal medicine specialist. We have a consulting board-certified small animal surgeon who does primarily orthopedics and a consulting board-certified small animal internal medicine specialist available when needed. There is also have a consulting board-certified animal ophthalmologist who sees regular large animal appointments here. We also see large (and some small) animal cases on a ambulatory/house call basis and have three ambulatory trucks for this. We pride ourselves in practicing up-to-date medicine using the latest in available technology. Our office is is paperless (AVImark), equipped with in-house lab equipment (IDEXX), isoflurane/sevoflurane anesthesia, monitoring equipment (ECG/temp/SpO2/EtCO2/NIBP), Bair Hugger, a CO2 laser, Bovie electrocautery, a vessel sealing device, two digital x-ray systems, two ultrasounds, digital dental x-ray, endoscopy, and more.
The primary responsibility of this position is to serve small animal clients in our Mt. Holly location, but there will be equine/large animal exposure both on farm calls and at our large animal hospital. Additionally, we provide veterinary services for a large county animal shelter and experience and/or interest in shelter medicine/surgery is a plus (but not a requirement).
We offer retirement benefits (IRA), participation in the practice's health insurance plan, and a staff discount.
This position is for a EXPERIENCED veterinary technician. Applicants without the necessary experience will not be reviewed. Please do not apply if you do not meet these requirements.
We will consider both those with on-the-job experience and highly qualified new accredited veterinary technology program graduates. Candidates must be comfortable with all aspects of small animal practice, especially the provision of anesthesia for surgery cases. Equine and large animal experience is a plus but not a must.
