Skilled Veterinary Assistants needed for day time and emergency shifts
South Bay Animal Hospital and Pet Resort is a brand new, state-of-the-art veterinary practice and pet resort in the heart of Silicon Valley. We are a very progressive small animal practice, with new, modern equipment including all-digital imaging and records, laser therapy, ultrasound, and CT! We also provide Emergency Services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 
We are seeking candidates for full-time employment for both daytime and emergency / overnight shifts. This position is specifically for candidates who have experience working in a veterinary hospital or are currently enrolled in an AVMA-accredited Veterinary Technology program.

Administer parenteral injections and oral medications
Dental prophylaxis under the supervision of the DVM
