Veterinary Assistant/Technician - LakeCross

The employment at LakeCross Veterinary holds high expectations of work ethic and dedication to caring for animals and supporting other staff and veterinarians. We practice modern gold-standard medicine and we expect our job candidates to believe in what we do and offer. We are a small hospital of 3 doctors and around 13 other support staff members between reception and the treatment area. You will be supported by a hospital manager, assistant supervisor and medical director. 


Some of the job expectations/responsibilities are:



*Walking dogs

*Cleaning litter pans/cages


*Drawing blood/placing catheters

*Putting in medical charges into our PMS

*Running lab work

*Collecting urine and fecal samples

*Nail Trims/Anal Gland Expressions

*Occasionally answering phone calls or checking clients in if needed

*Knowing how to differentiate vaccinations and heartworm/flea/tick preventative


*Monitoring or running surgical procedures is a huge plus and will reflect pay greatly*


Daily doctor/support staff assignments will be made by the hospital manager or assistant supervisor, but we try to keep them as consistent as possible, week by week. Your personal schedule will also be pretty consistent, but you must be able to work opening/closing shifts and work some Saturdays (every other or every third). If you joined our hyperthyroid treatment program, you would be required to work 1 Sunday every 4-5 weeks to support the thyroid cats on their extended stays. Management works hard to allow each staff member to have an early day or half day throughout the week, if we are able. 


**Reliable transportation, punctuality, and attendance are a MUST** If accepted for this position, please allow yourself a grace period of time to commute to work - traffic in the area can be very congested. 

Normal Clinic Hours are:


Mon-Friday 7:30am-6:00pm


Saturdays 8:00am-12:00 pm

**Closed all major holidays; New Years Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve(close a few hours early) & Christmas Day**

Here at LakeCross, we offer a wide variety of learning opportunities that other clinics may not be able to offer. In addition to general practice appointments and routine surgery, we offer feline hyperthyroid treatment using I-131 radioactive iodine. We also offer acupuncture and chinese medicine. It is very rewarding to be apart of a clinic that differs from others where you can expand your knowledge in veterinary medicine. We have opportunities to grow in specialty and emergency medicine if you wish, or even administration. We offer a competitive program that helps pay for schooling to become a registered veterinary technician if you desired to do that. Some of the challenges in this position are mental, emotional and physical, but at the end of the day caring for animals and working with a strong group of people is rewarding and a huge part of who we are. We offer a safe and supportive place to work, we just expect hard work and dedication to be given in return. 

Benefits that LakeCross offers:






Life Insurance Policies

Short Term/Long Term Disability Options


LakeCross also offers great employee/pet benefits where you can enjoy up to 50% off of prescription medications, food, and services with free exams and vaccines for up to 2 pets per year! 


Thank you for your interest in our job posting; we look forward to meeting you in hopes to add you to our crew here at LakeCross Veterinary!

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in PetVet Care Centers’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way.
