Veterinarian:

Leave the city with low income and high cost of living and move to a small town with a higher income, lower stress and low cost of living. I am looking for 2 or more Full-Time or Part-Time veterinarians for both our general practice day shift and our after-hours Urgent and Emergency Care Center. We see only dogs and cats but will see exotics if we feel comfortable with the type of exotic. The general practice on the day shift is open 7 days a week and we see everything from Wellness to Emergencies. The after-hour practice is primarily an Urgent Care practice seeing after hour sick patients. The development of an “urgent care” practice is new to our industry. Just like in human medicine, urgent care is designed to provide medicine to sick animals at a lower cost than emergency rooms. Our goal is to provide excellent medicine for all dogs and cats in our regular day practice and after other veterinary practice.

Day shift schedule is 8 hours a day with a 1-hour lunch from 7:30 am – 4 or 5 pm, schedule is a 3 week rotating shift so no one works more than 5 days in a row. 40 – 45 hours is the normal weekly schedule. We are looking for at least one FT veterinarian for this shift or a PT veterinarian/Relief veterinarian that will pick up shifts from 8am – 5pm Monday through Friday and every third weekend from 8am to 4pm. Schedules are flexible as a 3-week rotation.

The after hour Urgent Care FT veterinarian schedule is an 8-hour shift with lunch when possible. It is from 4pm until midnight Friday through Tuesday (closed Wednesday and Thursday). We would prefer a FT veterinarian for this shift but a PT or Relief veterinarian for 2 or more shifts a week would work. Patients are primarily urgent care patients with a few emergencies. Common conditions seen are skin disease, ear disease, Lyme disease, Parvo infections, endocrine diseases, reproductive problems, blocked cats, heart and lung diseases, cancer patients, vomiting, diarrhea, and other similar sick dogs and cats. Common trauma cases are lacerations, bite wounds, abscesses, warbles, pyometra, and occasional GI foreign bodies. Severe cases are stabilized then shipped to a 24-hour referral center in Akron. Surgeries are performed by attending urgent care veterinarian and sent home towards the end of the night if possible, transferred to a 24-hour service if necessary or kept overnight for recovery with video supervision. Patients are kept overnight only at the discretion of the attending urgent care veterinarian or shipped to a 24 hour facility.
About our facility – we are an established AAHA certified full service veterinary hospital without boarding. This is a newly renovated 8600 sq ft hospital. We have the capability to house 36 sick or recovering patients. We are a high-tech practice with digital radiology, a full lab, ICU units, Oxygen cages, Isolation ward, Ultrasound, 2 surgery suites, Camera system to monitor patients remotely, HEPA human quarantine air handling system and large rooms for social distancing. Our support staff are experienced and licensed or certified. Our veterinarians are experienced and willing to mentor new grads. We are located in a small town in NE Ohio about 90 minutes west of Pittsburgh, 1 hour south from Cleveland, 45 minutes east of Akron and 20 minutes south of Youngstown.

Veterinarians of all experience levels are welcomed. If you are looking for a challenge and a place to use your hard-earned skills, make a decent living wage, great benefits and a healthy work-life balance and place to raise a family, then this is for you. We can compete with the corporations with salaries and benefits. Call for details.

Veterinary Technician

We are a multi-doctor, high tech practice providing services ranging from wellness, sick, urgent and emergency care for dogs and cats. Our first shift is a general practice with 3 doctors and our second shift is a walk in or appointment based urgent care with the ability to do some emergencies as well.

We need RVTs (registered veterinary technicians) and veterinary assistants. With the appearance of COVID-19 we’ve had a surge in new patients as other hospital close. There are two shifts and the individuals we are looking for can work either or both shifts. We need smart and experienced people to work shifts Monday through Friday and some weekends. Individuals can work rotating shifts, night shift one week and day shift next week or only one specific shift. Experienced techs are needed for the second shift or new graduates with excellent skills. New Vet Tech or Vet Assistant program graduates are welcomed. The RVT and vet assistant positions are NOT kennel positions, these are nursing positions and applicants should have a solid foundation in veterinary nursing.
I want people that want to use those skills they learned in school or on the job to provide top notch medicine, not someone to just hold animals and clean kennels.

Specific job requirements listed below. Individuals should have strong teamwork and communication skills; be able to work as a team in busy work environment; can follow written and verbal directions, able to multi-task and use a computer, be able to stand, walk, kneel, stoop, maneuver for long duration of time; and able to lift and carry 50 lbs and perform tasks based on doctor’s notes, fill medications and be able to discuss them with clients. Should have flexibility for schedules and must be able to work any day, as well as some weekends and overtime as needed.

Dr. Brooks believes that the people who work in our profession are hard workers and smart and deserve a fair working wage and good benefits. We need quality people that can insert themselves into our team as if they have always been there, helping the pets, doctors, team members and promoting a teamwork environment. Salary and benefits based on experience and shift worked. Please send resume to Lisa Baker at practicemanager@catapuss-vet.com or fax it to (330) 332-2255.
