(Confident new graduates considered) Hours accommodate a balanced work and home life, working every other Saturday, one day off during the week and no after-hour calls! We do not board or keep animals hospitalized overnight. If a pet needs overnight care or emergency care we have several 24 hour hospitals close to us. You can sleep knowing that you will not come back to a patient left alone in a cage at night. Our 30 minute appointments allow you time to talk to clients and we have one hour set aside for lunch. Most days there are at least two veterinarians on duty so there is someone to bounce ideas around. (The exception is Saturday...but it is only a half day)
