Description: Amazing RVT opportunity! Grey Bruce Pet Hospital, an AAHA-accredited practice in Owen Sound is seeking a full-time, energetic, and enthusiastic RVT to join 6 other awesome RVTs awaiting their next team member. If you’re searching for a welcoming and collaborative environment that will use your RVT skills fully, search no further!

We celebrate best practices and are not shy to try new things, most recently introducing stem cell therapy and digital thermal imaging to our roster. Along with theriogenology, rehabilitation and chiropractic services in-house, our Western medicine is complimented by Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture for the times when clients wish to pursue these methodologies. Being an AAHA-accredited practice means we are constantly striving to be better, with clear protocols and progressive culture. With a fear-free mindset and emphasis on client relationships, we are lucky to have a compliant client base that benefits from our extensive scope of services.

Our ideal candidate takes pride in their compassionate client communication skills, and understands the importance of preventative medicine and client education. This role will focus primarily on anesthesia, lab work, surgery, nursing, and general patient care. However, candidates that possess experience or an interest in rehab exercises, regenerative therapies such as stem cell therapy and PRP therapy, laser therapy, acupuncture, and spinal manipulation therapy will be favored. Participation in the on call/weekend/evening rotation is required.

Owen Sound is a perfect mix of rural and urban. It is only a 2-hour (scenic) drive from the big city of Toronto, and is the largest urban community in its county. Owen Sound’s tagline is literally “Where you want to live!” You only have to visit to understand why. It is a rapidly growing, family-oriented city located in the heart of beautiful Grey County.  This is a community with small town values and big city services!  Boasting a large retail sector, an Ontario Hockey League team, a regional hospital with specialty services, a brand-new YMCA facility, a vibrant arts community and other amenities.  What truly distinguishes Owen Sound is the expansive harbor on the southern shore of Georgian Bay, complete with stunning beaches, shipwreck scuba diving, and numerous waterfalls in the area. Enjoy a day kayaking in the summer, or escape to Blue Mountain for skiing in the winter. It’s all possible in Owen Sound, and the region also boasts incredible value for money with property and housing being readily available and very affordable. It is the type of place that allows you to live on an acreage and still be at work in 10 minutes!
