Full-Time Associate Veterinarian

Highlands Pet Hospital is looking for a Full Time Associate Veterinarian to join our team!

YOU: A friendly and outgoing Veterinary Associate who is looking to provide excellent patient care to a well established and growing client base. We are more than happy to invite new, graduating Veterinarians to begin their careers here, ensuring a high level of support, mentorship and ongoing education.  Excellent client communication skills that are practiced with a smile, possessing a willingness to grow, embrace change and technology are all must haves for our ideal candidate. We are looking for someone who is passionate and enthusiastic about veterinary medicine, enjoys collaborating with a team, and  is compassionate and driven to provide high quality care. If you enjoy doing something different every day, having regular challenges and new things to learn, then you are who we are looking for! Our practice is equipped with standard medical equipment (in-house labs, digital radiography, digital dental x-rays, tonometer, multiparameter monitors, and ultrasound.) 

MAJOR JOB SKILLS REQUIRED: Must be a licensed DVM with the ABVMA. You must work well under pressure and have the ability to multitask, work well with other team members and be professional at all times. Strong communication skills delivered in a friendly, compassionate way are a must. You’ll need to embrace technology and enjoy working with computers, have a moderate level of comfort/skill with and be willing to learn about new technology. We need someone enthusiastic and eager to learn!

US: We’re a fun, and energetic team that enjoys laughing together throughout the day, even when things get chaotic or stressful. Our team loves to celebrate each others’ successes, and we support each other through the hard days. We currently have one full time veterinarian and are looking to add a second full time DVM to meet the ever growing needs of our clients and patients. We have a fantastic team of 8 support staff who work hard together to provide care for our feline and canine patients. Highlands Pet Hospital is one of the few locally owned practices left in Lethbridge. We enjoy the benefits of being a close-knit, family feel practice. We treat each other and our clients like family, and treat our patients as if they were our own. We believe in providing high-quality veterinary care for our patients and clients, with an emphasis on preventative medicine and education. There is room to grow within the veterinary field in our hospital and we support team members who have professional goals and aspirations. We value collaboration and new ideas – welcoming new suggestions and encouraging professional and personal growth. Our ideal candidate will have a sense of humor (and enjoy cracking jokes throughout the day), eager to share their passions and excitement with the team, enjoy working with people and their pets, and be excited about actively participating in the learning environment we have created.

THE AREA: We are located in beautiful Lethbridge, Alberta. Although you may have to get used to the wind, you can be sure to enjoy beautiful summers, gorgeous fall weather in the coulees, and warmer winters. Just a short drive to the mountains, Lethbridge makes for an Adventurers’ favorite place to live. You will find an abundance of outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking or paddle boarding in the summer, along with snowboarding and skiing in the winter. Lethbridge is a wonderful place to raise a family with its many great communities, schools and an abundance of extracurricular activities. 

MAJOR JOB BENEFITS:This is a full time position. We are currently open Monday, Wednesday – Friday from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm and Tuesday from 8:00 to 7:30 pm. Tuesday shifts will alternate between early and late clinic. We are closed weekends and holidays. We do not provide after hours emergency services but rather refer to a 24 hour facility here in Lethbridge, therefore no call will be required. Family and a work-life balance are extremely valued here at Highlands Pet Hospital. We offer a competitive salary, CE allowance, association dues, uniform allowance, health benefits and veterinary discounts.

We are a full-service pet hospital and will take both emergency cases (when possible), as well as less urgent medical, surgical, and dental issues. We are seeking a compassionate, enthusiastic Associate DVM to join our team. Our close-knit team offers a friendly and supportive work environment, where our core values enable us to provide our clients and patients with high-quality, trusted, and compassionate care.
