The diagnosis of cancer in a beloved pet can be devastating and scary.

We offer an exceptional level of progressive, sensitive cancer care; our philosophy is that there are always treatment options. We emphasize support, education and the patient's quality of life.

Day to day responsibilities of the Oncology Veterinary Technician include: assisting with appointments and procedures, reviewing patient medical records, obtaining laboratory samples, administering chemotherapy, providing exceptional client communications.

Essential skills of this position include: must be able to lift 45lb and work on feet for several hours at a time; proficiency in venipuncture, IV catheter placement and intubation; induction and monitoring of anesthetic procedures.

Candidates for this position should be enthusiastic about client education and compassionate patient care. Prior experience in an oncology department a plus!
