We are a 100% avian and exotics hospital in Southern California. We practice high quality, highly compassionate medicine. Our clientele is devoted and caring, and interested in thorough diagnostic work ups, proper treatments, and advanced procedures. Our technicians are very skilled and are comfortable handling, restraining, intubating, performing venipuncture on, caring for and administering treatments to all species. In addition, the technicians are responsible for comprehensive husbandry education and detailed demonstrations for the clients. This frees up the doctors to concentrate on diagnostics and managing cases.
Exotic Animal Veterinary Center has all the toys: Vimago CT scanner, digital radiology, ultrasound, vessel sealer, rigid endoscopy, in house laboratory, and therapy laser. We utilize a nearby facility for radiation and use a mobile ultrasound specialist as needed. We also have an acupuncturist on staff. We see about 40% rabbits, 20% birds, 20% reptiles, and 20% rodents, ferrets, wildlife, pot belly pigs, hedgehogs, sugar gliders and fish.
Salary is competitive and benefits include generous signing bonus, medical and dental insurance, 401K, CE/Dues allowance, paid vacation and paid CE days, and discounted pet services. We encourage and support special interests and CE and will cover the costs of ultrasound training, acupuncture certification and specialty board certification.
1 year experience or Internship preferred. New graduates welcome.
Exotic Animal Veterinary Center believes in high level and compassionate pet care as well as compassionate staff care. We have cultivated a team-based, positive and supportive environment. We promote personal wellness as well as veterinary growth. We have six full time and 2 part time doctors, and are staffed with 4-5 doctors each day. This means that there is always another exotics-experienced veterinarian to discuss cases with. We work four 10hr shifts, which allows enough time off for a personal life. Another perk at our hospital is working with our terrific and highly trained staff. Each doctor is assigned 1-2 technicians per shift.
We are currently open 8am-8pm Monday - Wednesday, and 8am-6pm Thursday - Saturday. Appointments are 30-60 minutes to allow for extensive patient care.
