Animal Urgent Care is a small animal, AAHA certified ER hospital in our 14th year. Our success thus far is due, in large part, to our focus on long-term staff retention. We are open 24/7 and settled into a new building with the latest equipment in 2018.
If you have a great sense of humor, practice high quality medicine and surgery, are compassionate and skilled communicator, respect and appreciate an extremely committed and competent staff, and love the thrill of ER you will fit right in.
We are interested in speaking with experienced ER DVMs, internship trained DVMs, and new grads or GP DVMs who have an interest in emergency medicine. ER Mentorship is available!
We use EzyVet and Smartflow software, and have a focus on paperlite, environmentally friendly practices. We have a boarded radiologist available daytime radiology reviews and for ultrasounds on weekday afternoons. IDEXX is available for radiology reviews overnight.
Our goal is to practice high quality medicine in a comfortable environment that puts our clients and patients at ease. Since the inception of AUC, we have maintained our core value of affordable emergency care for our surrounding community. The closest specialty facility is approximately ten minutes away, in the event a pet needs a service we cannot provide.
Benefits include health insurance, 401K retirement plan with partial match, biannual scrubs, CE allowance, dues and license allowance, VECCS, AVMA PLIT, VIN, Vet Girl, generous employee pet discounts, paid time off, and competitive salary that is not dependent upon commission. You are paid for every hour you work, including records.
For the right person, we are happy to discuss sign-on bonus, relocation assistance, and potential buy-in opportunities in the future. We are scheduled to open a second hospital in Spring 2022. Come join our team in sunny Colorado! We are located conveniently between Boulder and Denver, and about 1.5 hours from skiing.
