Full Time Veterinary Technician Opening

Boise Cat Clinic is hiring a full time Veterinary Technician for our feline-only hospital. We are looking for someone who is passionate about working with cats and who understands the bond between cats & their human families.

Veterinary Technicians will have the opportunity to apply their professional skills in anesthesia, dentistry, laboratory testing and diagnostics, patient nursing, and client service and education. Additional duties include care and maintenance of hospital equipment, surgical instrument cleaning and care, as well as various cleaning duties. We consider ourselves partners with our clients in their cats’ care and pride ourselves on providing exceptional client service. Excellent communication skills such as reflective listening, empathy, and the ability (both verbally and in writing) to convey information thoroughly and effectively are essential. Good nursing and technical skills (such as medication administration and venipuncture) are important, as many treatments and diagnostics are performed in the exam rooms with the cat owner(s) present.

A major factor in our decision is an applicant with a positive attitude. We are looking for a caring and enthusiastic individual who displays a high level of professionalism and personal accountability. Candidates must enjoy working hard and function well as part of a healthcare team.

Our hospital, opened in 2011, is located in beautiful Boise, Idaho. We are just minutes away from the Boise River, and Boise offers something for everyone—whether you are urban or outdoorsy. Part time benefits include discounts on services and products, and uniform allowance. Salary depends on education and experience. Our hospital has earned the designation of “Cat Friendly Practice” as awarded by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. We utilize digital radiography (general and dental), in house and reference lab. Please go to our website www.boisecatclinic.com to meet our team and take a photo tour.

Prior experience working as a Veterinary Assistant or Technician in a veterinary hospital is required. Candidate should also have a high school degree (or equivalent), competence in the English language, and good phone, math and computer skills.

Your local Cat Friendly Practice

We are excited to announce that we have recently earned the designation of 'Cat Friendly Practice' by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. At Boise Cat Clinic we strive to provide cats and their families with the best care possible, and becoming a Cat Friendly Practice was the perfect opportunity to continue to elevate our standards of care. To earn this designation, we had to demonstrate a higher level of commitment and excellence in feline medicine as well as meet specific criteria to verify that staff members are especially qualified and dedicated to making every visit as pleasant and beneficial as possible for you and your cat.

In a recent study* it was found that many cat owners feel a high amount of anxiety surrounding a visit to the veterinarian, from coaxing an unwilling cat into a carrier to bringing them into an unfamiliar environment. That's where we can help!
