No emergencies, no critical cases. Essentials PetCare offers a new model of care devoted to providing high-quality preventative and minor illness care to underserved pet owners. Our goal is to expand veterinary services to the estimated 30-50% of U.S. pets who are not able to visit traditional full-service hospitals due to affordability or accessibility.

Our day-to-day care is different

Since we specialize in routine, preventative care, you’ll work in a less-stressful environment with a dependable schedule. A typical day in our walk-in clinics would include:

  • Examining patients on a walk-in basis, utilizing established protocols based on the latest AAHA recommendations
  • Educating clients about their pet’s needs and zoonotic diseases
  • Generating portable prescriptions for patients
  • Entering complete medical records into online practice management software
  • Discussing lab results with clients
  • Providing guidance and oversight to support staff as it relates to patient care and case management
  • Referring clients to local full-service hospitals for complex issues, procedures, dentals, and surgery

Aside from patient care, management opportunities may also be available, based on experience.

Required for position

  • DVM or equivalent degree and active state license
  • Capability of working in a fast-paced practice
  • High level of comfort with computers and digital medical records
  • Passion for client education

What type of personality will work best for this position? 

Friendly, honest, confident and direct. A positive attitude and friendly demeanor are very important for both teamwork and for creating a positive experience for our clients. Being confident and direct with clients and staff is necessary for efficient patient visits.

What is it like to work at Essentials PetCare? What is the culture?

By offering only preventative and minor illness care, we naturally have a positive atmosphere. We also take great care to find very friendly, hard-working and trustworthy staff members who operate proficiently as a team. You’ll be assisted by support staff, including a care coordinator/receptionist, a veterinary assistant, and a veterinary technician. They will report to a direct manager but fall under the overall responsibility of the veterinarian on duty.
