Animal Ark Pet Hospital Inc., Erie PA, is looking for a new member for our outstanding team! Established in 1987, we’ve grown into a 2-hospital, 9-doctor practice, the largest in the tri-state area, and received our AAHA accreditation in 2010. We have digital X-ray, digital dental X-ray, Doppler ultrasound, CO2 surgical laser, extensive in-house lab capability, the works!
Our talented, cohesive support team will work hard to allow you to practice effectively and efficiently with our extensive, knowledgeable, and motivated client base. We have a good mix of skilled, experienced doctors and talented younger ones who work together to practice sound, ethical, up-to-date medicine. We aren’t looking for just anyone; we hope you’ll help us move our established, well-respected practice into the next generation.
Some specifics regarding the job: Small animal exclusive, mostly dogs/cats with a few exotics. We’d love to grow the exotics portion, so interest in that is a plus, but not required. 40-hour weeks, evenings and Saturdays are shared. Local after-hours clinic, so no overnight or weekend call. New or recent grads welcome. Competitive salary and benefits (IRA, CE, vacation, insurance)
Erie is a surprising city. Nestled on the shore of Lake Erie (the greatest of the Great Lakes!), it provides a temperate 4-season climate, an affordable housing market and overall cost of living, and an excellent environment for raising a family.
We have: Local professional sports - OHL junior hockey, AA baseball, G-League basketball, horse and auto racing. Education - 5 colleges, a medical/pharmacy school, and excellent public schools (including 2 local high schools recently ranked in the top 10 in the state). Arts and culture - Symphony orchestra, chamber orchestra, outstanding community playhouse, museums, vibrant local music scene. Family - Beaches, children’s museum, excellent zoo, amusement/water parks. Outdoors - A Great Lake at your doorstep, dozens of golf courses, wildlife, skiing, hunting/fishing/camping. Presque Isle - One of the top environmental/birding/boating/recreational attractions in the country. Best freshwater beaches in America (USA Today). And if that’s not enough to keep you busy in your free time (and our practice provides ample time off), we’re a 90-minute drive to 3 major cities (Cleveland, Buffalo, Pittsburgh) and all of the activities they offer.
Additional Salary Information: Additional benefits include health insurance, CE allowance, PTO and SIMPLE IRA
About Animal Ark Pet Hospital
Animal Ark Pet Hospital was opened by Dr. Gerald Campbell on September 9, 1987. This practice was built to primarily serve Millcreek residents and their pets. On June 1, 1998, because of tremendous growth, a second hospital, Animal Kingdom Pet Hospital was opened on Erie’s east side. Today we have 9 veterinarians and over 35 staff members working between both hospitals. We are the only AAHA accredited practice in Erie County and take pride in maintaining that status. Accreditation by AAHA means that an animal hospital has been evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence. To maintain this accreditation, hospitals undergo a rigorous review by veterinary experts every three years.
