P/T Veterinarian for Modern, Innovative Clinic in Kelowna, BC

Semi-retired, back to work post-baby or simply looking for a balanced life? We might be a great match.

Pandosy Village Veterinary Hospital is a young, vibrant hospital in the trendy Pandosy Village district of Kelowna. Our well-rated hospital is the official partner of the University of British Columbia (UBC) Okanagan’s BARK Therapy program.

We've added a lot of high quality staff as we've grown, and are now ready for some part-time veterinary help. (If you are looking for full-time work, we are happy to share you with one of our buddy hospitals that is also looking for part-time help.)

CURRENT NEED: We are looking to incorporate a new part-time veterinarian to do see patients one day a week, and potentially do surgery an additional 1-2 mornings a week. We are flexible in how we grow and when those shifts fit into the week, with the goals to expand our hours and give our full time veterinarian more time to concentrate on his acupuncture practice. This position does not necessitate integrative medicine; however, the veterinarian will be supported to learn if interested.

UPCOMING NEED: Depending on the veterinarian’s interests and schedule, we are open to expanding this position so the vet can pursue integrative medicine interests. This growth position would suit a veterinarian interested in integrative medicine.

As an integrated practice, our work is varied and challenging, and we never stop learning. Our amazing base of committed clients really want the best for their pets, and we provide the best medicine we can. As examples, we run pre-anesthetic bloodwork for every dental/surgical patient, we do in-house titre testing for immunity, and we offer multi-modality support for all chronic ailments. Currently our full-time and part-time veterinarians offer our clients both alternative and conventional medicine depending on their interests, and our clinic offers services from dentistry and surgery, to acupuncture, chiropractic care, herbal medicine and nutritional therapy.

Our culture is warm, caring, family- and health-focussed. We have 10 staff members, and we all enjoy walking and biking to work, hiking on the weekends, doing yoga and cooking healthy food. Our clinic has an informal, relaxed atmosphere. We have a flat management structure, with self-managed teams. We offer an alternative transportation allowance, professional development allowance and uniforms for all staff, as well as extended healthcare benefits for our full-time staff’s families. We rarely work any overtime, and we close all long weekends for family time.

Our facilities are bright, with two spacious exam rooms, a daylight surgical suite and brand new lab machines. Our clinic is, and has always been, completely paperless. Within our warm brick and glass facilities we also have a high end pet store, which our staff enjoy as much as our visiting furry clients. You will be working with two veterinarians, one chiropractor and a team of passionate, committed staff.

We value diversity and welcome employees from all different backgrounds. New grads are welcome.
