VCA Orange County Veterinary Specialists is seeking an Emergency Veterinarian to join our highly respected, 24-hour emergency and specialty practice in Tustin, California.
We have been serving the Orange County community for more than 10 years! We are primarily a critical care and internal medicine-focused practice, located in a collaborative campus of other specialties, including but not limited to: oncology, neurology, radiation oncology, dermatology, dentistry and ophthalmology.
Our two-story, 7,500-sq.ft. facility was recently remodeled and features all the imaginable bells and whistles. Amenities include six exam rooms, two surgical suites and a large treatment room. Available equipment includes anesthetic and mechanical ventilators, diagnostic and portable ultrasounds, oxygen cages and endoscopy towers (flexible and rigid video scopes as well as laparoscopy and arthroscopy). In addition, the practice uses both digital radiograph and has a fluoroscopy (portable C-arm).
Laboratory equipment includes in-house CBC, in-house chemistry, Nova (electrolytes and blood gas) and colloid osmometer. Intensive care monitoring capabilities include recently upgraded pulse oximetry with, Capnography (EMMA portable capnographs and stand alone capnography), direct and indirect blood pressure monitoring, CVP monitoring, intra-abdominal pressure monitoring and wireless continuous telemetry. Advanced imaging (CT, MRI and scintigraphy) is also available next door.
The hospital fosters a relaxed and collegial atmosphere with a large support staff of 50 employees. Of 22 highly skilled veterinary technicians, 13 are registered veterinary technicians and 3 are boarded in emergency and critical care.
The primary qualification in any applicant is an all-encompassing desire to provide exceptional patient care. However, it is equally important that any applicant be energetic, a fun person to be around and someone who will gel with the positive vibe of the facility.
Since this is already a very busy hospital with a heavy caseload and a strong referral base, this position offers the opportunity to a variety of interesting cases and also to work collaboratively with all the specialty departments.
In addition to the opportunity to work in a busy, established multi-specialty practice, the position at VCA OCVS offers the opportunity to live in one of the loveliest regions in the country. The beach is a short drive to the west while the mountains, skiing and the desert are short drives to the east. VCA OCVS is situated between Los Angeles and San Diego with numerous activities and areas to explore. Get in the car and soon enough you’ll be in LA with its big city culture or avoid the car altogether and enjoy the open space and outdoor activities that the OC has to offer.
Compensation is negotiable based on education, experience, and other relevant credentials. The annual salary range for this position is $64,000 to $240,000. This position may also be eligible for other variable pay programs.
