Registered Veterinary Technician – Work-Life Balance, Generous Compensation

Lock One Animal Hospital

Work-Life Balance, Fun, Fulfillment and Financial Stability

Lock One Animal Hospital has been serving the quiet and beautiful north end of St. Catharines and its furry friends for over 20 years. We are re-opening in June 2021 with new ownership and a new progressive outlook to love our patients and ourselves just a little bit more.

We have a great appreciation for the value of highly skilled Registered Veterinary Technicians and the immense contributions that they make to a veterinary team. We are not only looking for a full-time RVT, but for an applicant that is interested in being a partner and collaborator in our clinic’s new beginning and long-term success. As a clinic, our focus will be on quality of care for our patients and quality of life for our employees.

For our patients that means:

– Individualized medicine
– A focus on animal welfare, no matter financial restrictions.
– Treating pets with the dignity and kindness we would use with our own pets

For our staff that means:

– Above average compensation ($24+/hr. commensurate with experience)
– Generous CE ($750/year)
– Comprehensive health benefits, uniform allowance & pet discounts
– Paid professional licensing and membership dues
– Biannual performance and compensation reviews which mean that you will not go unrewarded as our team and success grow!

We are looking for the right, highly motivated individual with exceptional technical skills (venipuncture, IV catheterization, anesthetic monitoring, radiology, in-patient nursing, excellent client communication), that wants to focus on using those RVT skills, not answering phones and doing laundry (Ok, there will be some laundry). Schedule will be weekdays only, with no weekends, and no on-call.

All applicants must have RVT certification, and have completed an accredited veterinary technology diploma. A sense of humour is also strictly required (only slightly less important than RVT status).

Experience is preferred however enthusiastic and competent new grads are encouraged to apply.

If interested, please forward your resume and cover letter to

Warning: we do not have a social media presence at this time (currently under development), which makes it difficult to find out more about us. So if you have any questions or would like more information, please email us!
