Part Time Veterinary Technician

Job posted 10/10/2017

Licensed Veterinary Technician

We are looking for a Licensed Veterinary Technician to join our existing team of 7 Veterinary Technicians and 6 doctors in a busy small animal AAHA accredited hospital.

The ideal candidate would be able to work a flexible schedule, have great communication skills with clients, and the ability to work well with all colleagues. Technicians who show passion and motivation to help animals, their people, and that are willing to grow their skills in this profession will be highly considered. Our Veterinary Technicians assist in multiple procedures providing care for animals including physical examinations, dental procedures, surgeries, immunizations, treatments, and euthanasia as well as client education, marketing and inventory maintenance. This position requires a working knowledge of pharmaceutical drugs, common diseases; their symptoms, means of transmission, treatment and prevention, and other basic preventative health care recommendations. Our technicians must be able to provide top-notch nursing care and be ready at all times to assist doctors, fellow technicians, or the front desk/kennel staff as needed (some cross training required). Interest or experience in providing Fear Free care to patients is required as implementing Fear Free care will be a primary focus for our clinic in 2018.

Our clinic practices high quality medicine and has a good reputation, so we see patient referrals from several other clinics in Lincoln and the surrounding towns. We do a lot of in-house labs with a Vetscan, I-Stat, Reflotron, and our technicians must be highly proficient in CBC's, UA's, cultures, and fecals, in addition to the standard heartworm tests and other snap tests. We use IDEXX Laboratories for our reference lab. We have digital x-ray, digital dental x-ray, a Phillips ultrasound, and brand new dental and surgical laser equipment, incubator, and EKG .

Shifts will vary from 7am-3 pm, 3 pm-11 pm M-F, and Saturdays from 8am-4pm (open 9am-3pm). We perform surgery from 7-3 M-F, plus any emergency surgeries during the evening shift or on weekends. We have our technicians rotate weekend treatment duty (Saturday night, Sunday morning and evening) taking care of our in-hospital patients. We do have a separate kennel staff, but technician assistance is required from time to time. To start, hours would vary from 8-40hrs per week (average 16-24) to fill in when other technicians are off. Monthly meetings are required. As our practice continues to grow and with the addition of new doctors, the possibility for FT employment down the road does exist.

PT employees working less than 30 hours per week are given an annual scrub allowance and offered a generous employee discount after 6 months of employment (including steep discounts from Hills and Idexx and free product from Merial, Bayer, ect...). CE allowance based on hours worked. Profit sharing is currently available after 1 year of satisfactory service. We have a FUN employee picnic in the summer, potluck meals throughout the year, and a fabulous Christmas party!

Being a college town, there are plenty of sporting events and a fun night-life scene downtown. There are a wide variety of grocery stores, theaters, museums, and shopping options around town.
