VCA Wakefield Animal Hospital is seeking an experienced Exotics Veterinarian, preferably DABVP (Reptile and Amphibian), to join our AAHA-accredited, 9-doctor practice in Wakefield, Massachusetts.
We’re looking for a believer in the possibilities of high-quality veterinary medicine and patient care. A devoted team player who thrives in a collaborative environment, and is invested in their colleagues’ success. Someone who takes enormous pride in their ability to listen and speak to clients like a trusted friend. A service-minded professional who is energized by the gratitude of others and in the satisfaction of a job done right. If this describes you, then we want you on our team!
Our growing practice sees 50% dogs, 35% cats, and 15% exotic species which include: small mammals, reptiles, birds, and fish.
We recognize that our clients have many choices in veterinary care, including the choice to skip it altogether. Your mission will be to win the confidence of every pet parent—by delivering an outstanding client experience—so they will partner with us for the lifelong care of their companion animals. And to never take their patronage for granted.
Your teaching and marketing skills will also come into play, as you educate clients on the value of advanced veterinary care. You will be in a unique position to coach them on keeping their pets healthy, as well as validating any concerns they may have.
Perhaps the greatest asset you will bring is your emotional intelligence. As you know, the hospitalization of a beloved pet can be a stressful situation for everyone involved. At times, your ability to maintain a cool head and treat clients according to the Golden Rule will be tested. But we have faith in your professionalism and know that you won’t let us, your patients—or yourself—down!
