Specialty Swing Shift Veterinary Technician

Fetch Specialty & Emergency Veterinary Centers is looking for Specialty Swing Shift Veterinary Technician to join our team! Fetch is a privately-owned emergency and specialty veterinary hospital offering advanced and specialized veterinary services to our clients and referring veterinarians. Our mission is to provide high-quality care to pets in need, and we are seeking a compassionate and skilled veterinary technician to help us achieve this goal. In this role, you will be responsible for assisting our veterinarians in providing exceptional care to our patients. The position will take primary responsibility for evening and weekend surgical and specialty procedures. In between procedures, the position will support the ER and ICU services.
