Deerfield Animal Hospital is proud to call San Antonio home. As the seventh-largest city in the US, San Antonio boasts all the amenities of a major metropolis while managing to maintain a strong sense of community and small-town vibe in each neighborhood. There aren’t many places where you can explore historical landmarks, enjoy major zoos and amusement parks, catch an NBA game, and stroll around the world-renowned Riverwalk.
It’s our privilege to both live in San Antonio and work at Deerfield Animal Hospital. We not only practice cutting-edge medicine, but we also practice empathetic, quality care. Our clients are our neighbors, friends, and family—each deserving a consistent, personalized experience. We offer preventative medicine, ultrasound, in-house laboratory, radiology, dentistry, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, boarding, internal medicine, and client education.
At Deerfield Animal Hospital, we believe that to offer the best to our clients we have to offer the best to our teammates. We take pride in creating a fun and dynamic workplace for our team and giving our employees the autonomy to pursue their individual strengths and interests. We also offer a generous compensation/benefits package, so our team knows they are appreciated and supported. Come join us!
