Wasatch Exotic Pet Care is the only exotic-exclusive veterinary practice in Utah and the Intermountain Region. We are growing like crazy and in need of 1-2 experienced technicians to work alongside our energetic non-credentialed support staff. We moved into a beautifully remodeled facility 2 ½ years ago with all of the necessary equipment to provide the highest level of care available for our patients: digital radiography, Abaxis in-house hematology/chemistry/clotting profile units, high-end cytologic microscopy, ultrasound, rigid endoscopy, electrocautery, therapeutic laser, multiparameter anesthetic monitor, Vetronics ventilator and capnograph, dental unit with all necessary equipment for rabbit/rodent dentistry, a fully-equipped surgical suite with multiple patient-warming devices, an extensive exotics-based library. We have easy access to CT and radiotherapy and have an excellent relationship with multiple specialists within the community. Our current support staff are very well-trained within their individual capabilities and are eager to learn from more experienced credentialed professionals. We have 2 associate veterinarians in addition to our owner and senior veterinarian and maintain a 1-year veterinary internship.
We see 50% small mammal (half of which are rabbits,) 20% each avian and herps, small hoofstock, aquatics and invertebrates. We are the only wildlife intake/triage facility in the valley. We are well-established in the community and receive all our business from word-of-mouth and professional referrals, with clients traveling from out of state weekly. Our clientele is well-educated regarding what constitutes quality care and expect the highest standard of care available within the exotic veterinary community.
We are centered within the Salt Lake Valley, minutes away from unlimited outdoor activities in our beautiful canyons with world-class skiing, rock-climbing and wildlife viewing and only a few hours’ drive from our 5 National Parks. The quality of life here is fantastic!
We are hiring for both/either part or full-time technicians: requirements include a minimum of an Associates degree in Veterinary Technology, successful passage of the VTNE and at least 2 years’ experience. Experience with exotic species is highly desirable. Licensing is not available within the State of Utah but we will cover the cost of maintaining a license in one other state. Salary is commensurate with experience, with a range of $14-20 per hour; we offer medical/dental insurance, CE, and paid time off. We will cover the full cost of travel for interviewing and assist with moving expenses.
