VCA Cottage Animal Hospital is seeking an experienced Associate Veterinarian to join our AAHA-accredited, 3-doctor practice in Walnut Creek, California as Medical Director.
The successful candidate will be an experienced veterinarian or confident New Grad looking to provide excellent patient care and client service. We offer an extensive mentoring program for those interested. Exotics experience is a plus but not required.
VCA Cottage is a tight-knit, neighborhood practice that provides high quality, compassionate care with excellent customer service. Located close to the senior community of Rossmoor, our clients are committed to providing the very best care for their pets and very dedicated to the practice itself. Wellness and client education are a big part of our practice.
Our recently remodeled facility is warm and welcoming. To provide excellent care we are well-equipped with in-house labs (including chemistries, i-stat, and a variety of SNAP tests), ultrasound, digital radiography, and oxygen cage. Digital dental radiographs are offered for every patient undergoing dental prophylaxis, and VCA’s CareClub provides a cost-effective solution to developing a strong preventative care relationship. Our well-trained and compassionate staff – including three RVTs – and the VCA management team are here to support you in providing the very best options for your clients.
We are located in the delightful city of Walnut Creek, in the shadow of Mount Diablo. There is a lively downtown with many wonderful restaurants and shops; a creek-side park and trail system runs right through the middle of the city. Walnut Creek is less than an hour’s drive to downtown San Francisco or the rugged California coast, and just a few hours from wine country and the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
As a member of the VCA family, your passion for medicine and compassion for pets and people is matched with a commitment to your professional growth. Among the reasons to consider joining VCA are:
Network of 3,800+ doctors, including more than 600 specialists
Largest provider of private practice Internships and residencies in the U.S.
