Scottsdale, Arizona - Small Animal Associate DVM **Career Growth**
Desert Tails Animal Clinic
Location: Scottsdale, Arizona
Type: Full Time
DVM or equivalent
Internal Number: Desert Tails
As Scottsdale Arizona continues to grow (by two feet and four paws at a time), Desert Tails Animal Clinic is growing too!
We are excited to welcome an Associate Veterinarian to our team and are searching for a DVM who’s ready to help elevate our services.
Scottsdale has a reputation as a travel destination, but it’s also a city full of people who LOVE sports, outdoor adventure, great food, and (most importantly) their pets. Being one of themost dog-friendly cities in the US, it’s no wonder we’re in need of another DVM!
How you’ll make an impact:
Partner with clients: Dr. Aric Remen has built solid relationships with our community and is appreciated for his high touch approach. As our second doctor, you’ll ensure our clients continue to feel heard, understand the why behind procedures, and know their pets are treated like family at our clinic.
Bond with the Desert Tails team: We have a welcoming and inclusive team that genuinely enjoys working together. We’ll do everything in our power to help you feel at home from your very first day.
Practice excellent medicine: Our hospital is a full-service, paper-lite practice equipped with digital radiology, cold laser therapy, endoscope, ultrasound, and more. You’ll utilize our tools to provide excellent services to small animals.
How we’ll support you:
At Desert Tails Animal Clinic, we believe the best way to provide compassionate care, personalized attention, and extraordinary service is by putting relationships—with our clients, patients, team, and community—at the heart of everything we do.
We are a small team of talented veterinary professionals who treat each pet as if they were our own
We have fun while working! You will hear a lot of laughter from our team members throughout the day
We’ll support your career growth and encourage your continued development as a veterinarian
We provide a competitive set of benefits designed with your work/life balance in mind
Our ideal candidate will have 1-3 years of experience, a positive attitude, great communication skills, and excellent medical and surgical skills. Our focus is on the client experience, ensuring we meet their needs and expectations. Veterinarians who have great bedside manners and will enjoy getting to know our clients on a more personal level would be excellent additions to the team. This is a full-time role with flexible scheduling; however, Wednesday and Saturday (halfday) coverage are a must.
Our benefits package includes:
Generous base salary commensurate with experience
Quarterly production with no negative accrual
120 hours of annual PTO with rollover
Annual CE allowance with paid days to attend
Paid parental leave/bonding time
Flexible FT scheduling with NO on-call or emergency hours

Aside from petting ALL the dogs, Scottsdale is full of fun adventures!
We’re swimming with pools: There are 120+ resort pools in the area. A lot of them have day passes for community access too!
The Salt River: a popular destination for paddle boarding and spotting wild horses!
A sizzling restaurant scene: Delicious food, fun cocktails, and abundant happy hours make for fun Friday nights and weekend celebrations
Vivacious nightlife: Are you in the mood for a dive bar, nightclub, live music, wine bar, or beer garden?
Road trip anyone? Some of Arizona’s favorite landmarks are only 2 hours away—like the red rocks of Sedona, the forests of Payson, and the slopes of Flagstaff! Plus, we’re only four hours from the beaches of Rocky Point Mexico and under five hours to San Diego’s Mission Beach!
Family fun: From dive-in movies (like the drive-in, but in a pool!) to concerts in the park and tiki parties, there’s plenty of kid-friendly and adult-only fun in Scottsdale
