Are you a Veterinary Technician who just "LOVES CATS"? Or do you have extensive experience medically caring for cats that aren't your own? Do you want to learn more about cats? Well then this just may be the career position for you!
Exclusively Cats Veterinary Hospital is a growing"cat-only" practice, set in a peaceful garden setting, located in Medford, NJ. We believe in progressive feline medicine and value customer service. Our clients tend to be top notch and highly devoted to their cats!
We are looking to hire a part to full time technician who is also willing to help with front desk duties on occasion. (We are a small practice so everyone is cross trained to fill multiple positions when needed.) This position also has the potential to include management duties for the right person.
"Cat Parent" education is an extremely important part of what we do. Consequently, the entire staff is trained in basic feline health care and preventative health maintenance measures through daily discussions with our doctor, reading materials provided, and regional continuing education "cat only" opportunities.
Job duties include, but are not limited to, the following: assist in therapeutic and diagnostic procedures, perform blood draws, collect specimens, perform fecal tests, assist with surgery, monitor anesthesia and surgical recovery, perform dental prophylaxis, assist in inventory maintenance, pain management, "fear free" management, prescription preparation, monitor "at-home" patient progress, and advise and educate cat parents.
Shifts may include Monday, Tuesday and Friday day shifts, some Wednesday and Thursday evenings and occasional Saturdays. Weekend tech duty may (on rare occasion) be required on a rotational basis. However, local emergency hospitals handle our "off hour" emergencies and hospitalizations are limited because our patients are cats and they do better at home.
We offer a competitive salary, bonus programs, medical insurance, employer matching retirement plan, and continuing education opportunities.
To be considered you must be self-motivated, independent and have the ability to multi-task. A strong desire to learn about cats and their unique medical and behavioral problems is also a must! The candidate should also have strong customer service experience and enjoy interacting with cat parents and their cats. Experience in a veterinary practice, animal shelter, and/or completion of a vet tech/assistant program is preferred.
Due to the training required this is not a temporary position. Only candidates looking for year-round employment will be considered.
Additional Salary Information: Starting wages are determined by your feline veterinary experience and/or knowledge; however we are more than willing to train any well motivated person and reward as your knowledge and skills grow.
