Happy Paws Veterinary Hospital is a dog and cat practice in beautiful Lafayette, CO. Lafayette is half way between Denver and Boulder. We are patient and quality focused- rather than a volume oriented practice. We take time to educate all new puppy and kitten owners. We practice medicine, surgery, dentistry, and anesthesia "as taught in vet school," never cutting corners. We also support many 501C3 rescue groups because we believe in helping homeless animals.
Happy Paws opened in 2018 after the owner, Dr. JJ Wellman, sold her practice in the south (Pampered Paws Animal Hospital). We are undergoing renovations and will be ready to add a second veterinarian by May 2021.
We are looking for someone who is warm and fuzzy but competent and driven. Dr. Wellman is happy to mentor a new graduate and we are also happy to have an associate with experience.
We have a board certified traveling radiologist for ultrasounds and a board certified surgeon for orthopedic surgeries. Equipment: ETCO2, ECG, PULSE Ox, NIBP, Doppler w amplifier so we hear every beat of patient's heart when anesthetized, Idexx digital xray, Idexx in house blood machines, dental digital xray, tonopen, radiosx, companion laser surgery, heska fluid pumps, fluid warmer, air blanket.
Leadership skills, determination to practice the best medicine, to constantly grow and improve, and an avid love for animals.
Additional Salary Information: We are open to part time or full time. We are wanting to hire someone who plans to stay longterm.
