Established in 1989, Sahuaro Vista Veterinary Clinic is proud to serve the residents of Oro Valley, Arizona. Managing Veterinarian, Dr. Andrew Carlton and Dr. Rachel Tempkin, along with their team of skilled and experienced veterinary technicians and assistants are looking for an additional Associate Veterinarian to join our family and help continue to grow our practice. We are AAHA accredited and work hard to provide our pets with the latest in veterinary medicine and care techniques. We also work closely with local practices when special diagnostic procedures are required. SVVC includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-hospital x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and a separate closely supervised quarantine area for those cases in need. Sahuaro Vista recognizes the need for alternative therapy for our four legged companions and have added K-Laser Class IV therapeutic laser treatments for advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue healing.
