Job Description

Animal Specialty Center in Yonkers, New York believes in a team-oriented approach to patient care. Our Veterinary Assistants are immersed in a learning environment where they can begin establishing a foundation of skill sets as they move up the technician ladder. Our assistants assume responsibility for all general husbandry and oversee patient care to support our licensed staff. Through training and oversight with our training team, assistants will work through levels of skills sets to be able to perform blood draws and treatments as approved by the team.  Animal Specialty Center is currently undergoing substantial growth and is looking for experienced and highly motivated veterinary assistants to join our fast-paced, 24-hour emergency and intensive care team.  We pride ourselves in an open, welcoming work environment where employees can feel safe to learn from their co-workers and seek guidance from a variety of clinicians and specialists. Leadership strives to maintain close working relationships with all employees to take into consideration their concerns or suggestions for continued innovation and expansion of our services and patient care. Our leadership team's focus is to assist our employees in setting goals and identify internal growth possibilities, reviewed on a quarterly and annual basis. Our veterinary assistants cover multiple shifts in our busy Emergency room and ICU including triage, in-hospital care, out-patient care, and overnight specialty patient care. Our assistants also gain knowledge in a variety of specialty concentrations as we boast a cross training/cross schedule approach. Assistants are not limited to ER and ICU and will also get an opportunity to support in surgery, neurology, internal medicine and oncology. Experience in veterinary medicine is preferred. 

We provide an annual uniform allowance, CE stipend, set paid CE days, state sick leave days, additional paid vacation time off, in-house CE lectures and online learning platforms, competitive healthcare benefits, 401k, pet care discounts and many more benefits. 

Compensation is based on experience.
