Work on the Sunnier Side of Veterinary Medicine

No emergencies. No critical cases. A modern, fast-paced, paperless practice with a mission to help underserved pet owners give their companion animals the basic care they need.

Oh, and did we mention there’s gorgeous, Gulf Coast beaches and fun, culturally vibrant cities just a short drive away?

Essentials PetCare has an opening for a part-time Associate Veterinarian to work alongside our super-friendly staff in providing basic, high-quality, preventative veterinary care to families who otherwise might not be able to afford to care for their pets. You will make regular referrals to local full-service hospitals for complex issues and diagnostics, procedures, dentals, and surgery.

To make ourselves as accessible as possible to pet owners, prices are posted right on our website and we are open seven days a week with no appointments. You’ll work with our very appreciative clients part-time, with the same dependable schedule each week. All doctors earn paid vacation, and we pay for licenses, dues, and PLIT coverage if you’re full-time.

Now about those beaches. You’ll be working in the Tampa Bay area, a hub of sports, culture, and laid-back living perfect for singles and families. Disney World is just 90 minutes away and the region is home to world-class beaches as well as inland rivers swimming with porpoises and manatees. Every water activity you can imagine is available-and with over 230 days of sun per year, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy them.

If you have a passion for client education, helping animals, and a high level of comfort with the computer and digital medical records, we’d love to talk with you about the opportunities we offer to start your career or supplement your income. DVM or equivalent degree and active state license required.
