Veterinary Technician

Tally Oaks Veterinary Service

This is a Contract position in Purcellville, VA posted March 26, 2020.

Position Overview

Do you aspire to work in a veterinary practice that places emphasis on the quality of animal care and not the quantity? Are you someone who believes that a more holistic approach to veterinary medicine can benefit our small animal companions?  Are you interested in fear-free and stress-free approaches to small animal veterinary visits? Are you ready to be treated with the respect you deserve after working to become a licensed veterinary technician? If you answered “YES” to all of these questions, we would love to talk to you about joining our team.  

Location

Our practice is located four miles from the up and coming town of Purcellville, VA. Located in Loudoun County, which is ranked in the top 10 wealthiest counties in the country. We operate five days a week providing care to dogs and cats in northern Virginia. 

Practice Overview

Our clinic is nestled in a rustic country setting which enables our patients to explore the more relaxed sights and smells of country life.   Our office, equally charming, does not have a large waiting room filled with barking dogs or stressed-out cats, since we schedule our appointments with ample time assuring minimal to no overlap. We diffuse stress-reducing blends of essential oils and play soothing music to make our office more like a spa than a veterinary office. 

We focus on a more holistic approach to well-being and would rather prevent injuries and disease, than treat. We analyze diet, environment, lifestyle and hereditary factors in order to come up with a customized preventative health care plan for my patients. When it is necessary to treat illnesses and injuries; we use a combination of traditional western medicine coupled with complimentary therapies such as laser, acupuncture, massage and essential oils. Are you up for working in a unique practice?
