JUL 21, 2021

Are you a new graduate, or an RVT with years of experience looking for change? Has the lack of opportunity for growth and the day-to-day monotony of regular practice got you down? Do you have an interest in exotic and/or emergency medicine, but not sure if you have what it takes? If you said yes to any of the above, then we have an opportunity you will not want to miss out on. Apply now for our new, four week, paid mentorship program. Trainees will be paired with one of our experienced RVTs who will mentor them for the entire duration of their training including but not limited to: triage, emergency medicine, surgery, anesthesia and nursing care. Two positions in this program will be available and one of them could be yours! Trainees will receive $18 an hour (negotiable based on previous experience) for three days a week to begin. An opportunity to advance into a full-time position will be presented on completion of program – wages starting at $18 – $23 but opportunity for further growth as experience is gained. • Only those who have a current RVT status or who qualify to write the VTNE, will be considered for these positions* What can you expect? – First and foremost, you can expect to be greeted by a welcoming team of about 50 co-workers who are eager and excited to integrate you into our team. This large group of hard-working superstars has a close knit feel that you typically only get in smaller “regular practice” atmosphere. – We offer digital dental radiographs, endoscopy, oral scoping for exotic animals, and laparoscopic procedures as well as in house diagnostics. There will be no shortage of practice to grow and maintain your skills. – Busy days! We deal with not only regular day-to-day appointments but also act as a 24-hour emergency hospital to Guelph and its surrounding areas. We treat not only small animal but exotic pets (small mammals, avians, lizards and other). – Weekend and evening shifts will be a requirement. After 6 months of employment, you will be integrated into our overnight emergency RVT rotation as needed. But wait that’s not all we have to offer! Health and dental benefits offered to full-time employees, after their three-month trial; Uniform allowance; Twice weekly online yoga classes; CE allowance; Long term disability; 2 weeks paid vacation (Increased to 3 weeks when you reach 5 years of employment); Generous discounts for services and products; Free exams and annual vaccines for up to 2 pets. They say Registered Veterinary Technicians last an average of only 5 years in a clinic environment. Our goal is to work together in changing that! We have several team members with 10-20 years experience and we want to help get you there as well. Please email .
