Veterinary Technician Assistant

Veterinary Technician Assistant needed for a full-time position at Colorado Canine Orthopedics. Colorado Canine Orthopedics is a progressive, state-of-the-art, small animal, orthopedic hospital specializing in ACL repair, fractures, joint replacements, arthroscopy, and neurosurgery. Our practice includes 6 orthopedic surgeons, approximately 45 other team members and is the largest orthopedic surgical practice in this region of the country. Our Veterinary Technician Assistants are a vital part of our team; working closely with the technicians and doctors to ensure that each patient receives the highest quality of care.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who is excited about learning new things, is a self-starter, enjoys being busy, and works well with others. Of course, this individual should be a devoted animal lover as well. We are seeking a devoted team player who thrives in a collaborative environment and strives not just for their individual success but for the success of the overall team.

Assistants aid our certified veterinary technicians in obtaining x-rays, placing catheters, running blood work, setting up for surgery, as well as managing equipment before, during and after surgery. The Assistant team is also responsible for surgical equipment care including cleaning and sterilizing. While prior veterinary experience is preferred, “in house training” for the right person is a very realistic option.

All assistants share a variety of shifts including evenings and Saturdays.

Please send your resume and cover letter to be considered for an interview.
