Button Veterinary Hospital is a privately owned, well-established (founded in 1920) full-service small animal hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical, and dental care.
We recently moved to a larger facility in South Tacoma with the room to expand our services and have added new equipment as well. Because of our longevity, we have treated pets for 4 and 5 generations of families in the South Puget Sound.
We consider our patients part of our family and approach veterinary care as such. Our goal is to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and full-service veterinary health care. We provide care for dogs, cats, rabbits, and pocket pets.
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY:
We are currently looking to add a full-time or part-time associate to our 3-doctor practice. Our full-time veterinarians work 4 days per week for 32-38 hours with 1 ½ hour lunches scheduled for each shift. Additionally, our 30-minute appointment length offers you adequate time for each client and patient.
Our hours are 8am – 6pm Mon – Fri and we are currently closed on weekends but will adapt our schedule to client needs as they present themselves in the future.
We have recently added an urgent care veterinarian on Mondays and have discussed adding additional urgent care days for interested candidates.
We pay based on production with a guaranteed base salary. Benefits include subsidized medical, dental and vision coverage, paid time off, state and DEA licenses, AVMA and WSVMA membership, VIN membership, PLIT coverage as well as a CE allowance with paid time off to attend and 401(k) to follow. For the right candidate, we are open to providing relocation support.
At Button Veterinary Hospital we consider our clients and their pets as family.
We are a fun-loving group of compassionate and hard-working staff and are in search of the right veterinarian to join our team.
We need our next veterinarian to first and foremost care about our patients and clients as well as endeavor to provide high quality medicine, create lasting relationships with our clients and be willing to share their knowledge with both our veterinarians and our support staff.
We are open to both part-time and full-time associates. Everyone says it, but we value a work/life balance for all our staff, and we think we do a good job!
ABOUT THE TEAM:
We have a low turnover rate, and pride ourselves on taking care of our staff.
Our team is well trained with diverse backgrounds in various areas of veterinary medicine. Our team is caring and compassionate, which of course, is key to high quality patient care.
We seek new avenues of patient care, always striving to improve the medicine we provide.
Our senses of humor are important to us, we like to have fun and appreciate being able to be silly.
ABOUT THE PRACTICE:
We have recently relocated to a newly renovated building in South Tacoma. We have almost twice as much space in our new location as well as triple the amount of client parking.
In our new location we have 2 surgical suites, a dental suite with a 2-patient capacity, a dedicated surgical prep area, as well as a new Class IV laser, an ultrasound, digital radiology and digital dental radiology.
We are open to expanding our services to include a candidate’s specials interests such as more in-depth ultrasound, expanding the use of our class IV therapeutic laser therapy, surgical, holistic care, behavioral, etc.
We feel we have an exceptionally designed hospital (all courtesy of our owner, Dr. Danielle Jensen) and would love to give you a tour if you are curious about our facility.
If we sound like we might be a good fit for you, please forward your resume and professional references to our practice manager, Debby Phillips, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
