Encanto Pet Clinic in Tucson, Arizona is looking for an associate veterinarian to complete our veterinary team!
At Encanto, we are a hard-working, fun-loving family, who strives to give our pet parents and their furry family members the best care possible. We believe the best way to provide compassionate, quality care to pets is by putting relationships - with clients, patients, Team members and community- at the heart of everything we do.
The way we approach our work matters. Our core values- do the right thing, fun, wow service, respect, and learning- guide everything we do at Encanto Pet Clinic. Our medical director, Dr. Michael Lent, is a Purdue graduate with 32 years of experience, including mentoring younger veterinarians and being very involved in organized veterinary medicine. He has served as president of both the Southern AZ Veterinary Medical Association, the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association, and as a board member on the Arizona State Veterinary Medical Examining Board. He has been involved with the Animal Cruelty Task Force of southern AZ (www.act-az.org), assisting law enforcement in investigations and educating the public about the link between animal abuse and human violence, especially domestic violence and child abuse. He currently serves as one of two Arizona delegates to the American Veterinary Medical Association. Working with Dr. Lent is a unique opportunity to not only be mentored in veterinary practice, but veterinary leadership.
Our commitment to pets extends beyond our clinic walls. We work closely with Cody’s Friends, a local charity that donates food and other goods, as well as helps with veterinary care, to pets and families in need.
Our Team Members have the opportunity to give back to communities around the globe through our partnership with World Vets. Each year, we send a group of doctors and support staff abroad to help pets in need and support programs that nurture healthy relationships between people and animals
