A little bit about us:

As one of LA's leading 24-hour specialty animal care centers, here at ASEC we are always looking for the next best addition to our Emergency & Critical Care Team.

  • Our ECC support team include doctors' assistants, technicians’ assistants, veterinary assistants, and RVTs

  • Our leadership team consists of Shift Leads, a Technician Supervisor, and one very hands-on ECC Department Manager

  • This team thrives on collaboration and support from one another...we would be nothing without our specialty departments, and they would be lost without us. We all work very closely together to make literal magic happen.
