MIXED ANIMAL RVT WANTED: WORK & PLAY IN THE HEART OF THE KOOTENAYS!

Are you a Veterinary Technologist looking for a change of pace? Perhaps you’ve envisioned yourself living the quintessential Kootenay lifestyle, but you’ve yet to locate the perfect community. Creston Veterinary Hospital is looking for additional RVT’s to join our growing team. We are an Emergency Mixed Animal practice that has been serving Creston and additional surrounding rural communities for 47 years. Our facility is fully equipped with an in-house laboratory and pharmacy, digital radiology (including a dental and portable unit), medical-grade laser, ultrasound (in house and portable) as well as a full array of large and small animal surgical equipment. We acknowledge the value of a work/life balance and ensure that the workload is shared fairly and evenly among team members by maintaining a rotating on-call/emergency schedule. Our team is committed to a positive environment with a strong focus on learning and career growth thus, we offer exceptional mentorship and encourage new grads to apply! Creston Veterinary Hospital was established in 1973 by the late Dr. David Perrin, the author of the “Don’t Turn Your Back in The Barn, Adventures of a Country Vet” book series. In 1996 Dr. Robert McLeod and John Wallis purchased the vet clinic and carried on Dr. Dave Perrin’s legacy by committing to a high standard in ethical and compassionate medicine. We are proud to say some of our employees have been with the clinic since the beginning and that the relationships formed at Creston Veterinary Hospital make our team more like family. By being a team that prioritizes a positive work environment, we are enduring the Covid-19 pandemic, while continually supporting one another to work towards our goals.

We encourage growth and challenge you to practice your tech skills so that you are successful in your career and meet your professional goals through continuing education and mentorship. We are grateful to have a team of employees that strive for a high standard of care, are progressive, and set team and personal goals.

We assure you that you will never be bored!
