Job Details

Compassionate Veterinarians needed to make a difference in people’s lives!

Route 66 Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Center is looking for an Internist that can create positive change in people’s lives through compassionate care for their pets. While working as part of our dynamic team you will provide quality veterinary care to our patients.

Who we are:

Our amazing team of caregivers are a positive group of people who create an atmosphere of calm even while dealing with the stress of emergency veterinary medicine. Route 66 Vet was created to provide a different experience for clients and employees alike. We aim to give back to our community by providing people with a caring compassionate atmosphere to bring their pets in a time of need. Our practice is expanding as the city of Albuquerque has embraced our hospital and has chosen it as the place for veterinary emergencies. We are expanding our talented team so we can care for our patients and clients while upholding our high customer service and exceptional medical standards.

Why New Mexico:

The Route 66 Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Center is in the trendy Nob Hill neighborhood close to both the University of New Mexico and Sandia National Laboratory. Albuquerque is a growing city that has an abundance of sunshine. Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains we enjoy all 4 seasons with none of the sticky triple-digit heated summer days. Albuquerque winters are mild yet sometimes we see a little snow. Mountain biking, hiking, and world-class skiing will be in your backyard! Our cost of living can’t be beat! Our housing market allows for very comfortable living on any budget.

New Building:

Our state-of-the-art, AAHA accredited, the facility features digital radiology, endoscopy, advanced patient monitoring, telemetry, ultrasound, ligasure, fully equipped laboratory and entirely electronic medical records. Our new facility completed in November 2021 will allow us to care for more patients while allowing our veterinarians to have the space to comfortably practice.

Awesome Staff:

Our technical staff are composed of mainly registered veterinary technicians and assistants with years of emergency experience. Keeping a staffed hospital where our clients are cared for and our veterinarians are supported is extremely important to us. Our vets enjoy a three tech to one doctor ratio. We have a full-time Veterinary Social Worker on staff to help support our staff emotionally as well as our clients.

Who we want:

We are looking for an enthusiastic, personable specialist! Someone who can handle the medical aspects of the job while delivering compassion and care to our patients and clients. Coaching and educating are important to us as we strive to create a collaborative environment where you can discuss and research cases among your colleagues.

  • Competitive Salary
