Sugar River Animal Hospital is seeking a veterinary assistant to join our team. No experience is necessary.
What does a veterinary assistant do?
A veterinary assistant helps to support veterinarians while they do appointments. They also help care for hospitalized patients. Once the basic skills of a veterinary assistant are mastered, there are opportunities for developing skills with assisting surgery and dentistry.
