Veterinarian Assistant


At Prestige Animal Hospital, we offer quality medical, surgical, grooming, and dental services for cats and dogs. Our staff is passionate about veterinary medicine and is currently offering a great opportunity for Top Veterinarian Practice Prestige Animal Hospitalthose looking for a long term position with an opportunity to grow as a Veterinary Assistant (VA).

The VA is a connection between the clients, doctors, and reception. She/he supports the veterinarian in ensuring quality care is delivered to all pets, advocates for pets and educates clients on all aspects of their pet’s health as well as making ensuring a safe and effective hospital environment. When in charge of a pet’s case the VA starts by taking patient history and TPR. She/he then enters the information collected into an electronic medical record and communicates it to the doctor. After the doctor puts a treatment plan together, she/he presents this plan to the client in such a way that the client will understand and comply and then communicates and coordinates approved medical treatment with the team. It is also the VA’s duty to make the check-out process with the receptionist as smooth as possible through data entry and communicating specific instructions regarding treatment and medications with the client beforehand. The VA also makes sure that their work areas (treatment, lab, surgery, pharmacy, etc.) are kept clean and stocked at all times. At times, the VA may also assist the receptionist in answering phone calls and making follow up and reminder calls.
