Work on the sunnier side of veterinary medicine.

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

We strive to provide the ultimate convenience and affordability for pet owners, so our business model is different. We have mastered the core care pets need, focusing on vaccinations, minor illnesses, wellness, and other preventative and diagnostic testing. We make regular referrals to a network of quality full-service hospitals for complex issues, advanced diagnostics, procedures, dentals, and surgery. 

At Essentials PetCare, we have established medical protocols based on the latest guidelines and best practices. We employ modern medicine and high standards to ensure high-quality, efficient visits for our patients. 

To make care as accessible and transparent as possible, our services and prices are posted on our website. Our clinics are conveniently located at the front of Walmart, with a separate exterior entrance. We are open evenings and weekends and offer online bookings to make it easy for pet parents to seek care. 

Are vet school student loans weighing on you, or are you looking for supplemental income? No contracts and no production-based pay – we keep it simple. Beyond offering a competitive and dependable salary, we believe in work-life harmony and understand the importance of a career that allows you to enjoy your life.
