We are a small animal veterinary office in the heart of east TN. Seymour is a small community with beautiful mountain views and just 30 minutes away from knoxville, sevierville, and alcoa TN. Our clinic consists of 1 full time vet/owner and 1 part time veterinarian. We offer a laid back personal atmosphere but focus on a high level of care for our patients. We are flexible in scheduling.
We are a growing clinic and pay an hourly wage to allow for scheduling flexibility and to prevent overworking salaried employees. We do have bonus structures and opportunities (for instance in 2019 every full time staff member went on a 5 day paid vacation to a beach home). We also have an excellent support team and frequently do group activities for team building like play badminton, have painting with a twist nights, and holiday potlucks.
An ideal candidate would be an assistant or tech who excels at client communication (loves to learn about vet medicine and teach others) and fear free handling of patients. We frequently work with a local shelter as well for high volume spay neuter and emergency care. We also handle client emergencies during business hours. Familiarity with PCs is preferred because we have a DR Digital Xray, ultrasound, electronic records (AVIMARK), online pharmacy, and a Rewards APP. Euthanasias are treated with care, compassion and extended time when possible so we prefer staff who are comfortable being with clients during grief. We work with clients of various incomes and create treatment plans that are unique for each patient and owner budget.

During covid our business is CURBSIDE only so clients remain in their vehicles while we care for their pets.
The most frequent compliment we get from our clients is that our doctors take the time to explain things in simple ways and that our staff is very knowledgeable. We believe that the more we teach our clients the better care they will take of the pets. This has become extremely important during covid as most of our communication is now digital or over the phone.
We currently currently only see canine and feline patients
Tattoos and non-natural hair color are accepted as long as the knowledge can back up the appearance :) We are also happy to work with working mom/dad schedules.
Additional Salary Information: Bonus structures are based on the entire clinic, hours worked, and split evenly between doctors, technicians, and staff.
