VCA Animal Hospitals Veterinary Assistant in Elk Grove, California

Welcome to your home away from home! At VCA Elk Grove Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves on having a team that feels like family and an enviroment that is based on support and understanding. We are looking for an veterinary assistant to join our team to help us deliver exceptional patient care and client service.

We are an AAHA accredited and Fear Free certified hospital that has been serving our community for over 50 years. Our patients' health is our top priority and we strive to provide genuine, personal service to our clients. In addition to helping our clients and their pets, we are dedicated to assisting our local Elk Grove Animal Services by sponsoring events, providing medical care to animals in their care, and with our doctors attending vaccine clinics held by the city. We are proud of our community and strongly believe in using our presence to help the city we live in.

While experience is strongly preferred, we work hard to get new staff up to speed quickly and to teach new skills at every opportunity.

As part of VCA, you will gain access to numerous training programs, advanced equipment and access to a large network of doctors, technicians and specialty practice. You will sharpen your skills—and even learn some new techniques—and explore career options that only VCA can offer, such as continuing education, transfer, specialization, and leadership opportunities.

We offer competitive compensation along with a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, dental, vision and paid vacation/sick days, 401(k), generous employee pet discounts and more! This position pays $17.00 - $23.00, dependent on experience.
