Position Title:  Are you a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) Who Wants To Work Where You’ll Be Respected & Valued??

We asked our Tech Team, ”Why do you like working at VCA Madera Pet Hospital?”

Here are some of the reasons they gave:

  • The people
  • The respect of the DVMs
  • The non-competitive environment
  • The chance to grow
  • The sharing of knowledge – “No one has too much pride to ask a question, even the DVMs”

No wonder many of them have been here for so many years!

Why We Need You

You’ve worked hard for your credentialing and we want you to use the knowledge that you’ve invested your time and talent in. Every place says youll get to use your skills. This is some of what youll do as an RVT at VCA Madera:

  • Anesthetic drug calculation, induction, intubation, maintenance, and recovery

Gualala calls:

Do you dream of living and working on the coast; perhaps having an ocean view from your clinic? Well, here is your chance to make that dream come true: the Gualala Veterinary Clinic is looking for the next generation of veterinarians.
Gualala is situated on the Pacific Coast just north of the junction of Sonoma and Mendocino counties on So. Hwy 1. We serve the communities of Gualala and Sea Ranch as well as many outlying areas up and down the coast. We have a maritime climate with a privileged “banana belt” microclimate. It is a wonderful community in a gentle climate with an affluent base clientele from the area and beyond.
The 3,700 sq ft building was built in 2008 on a 1/2 acre parcel and includes 900 sq ft of separate living quarters. The equipment is up to date and plentiful; we are paperless, using Intravet practice management software; we have digital radiology, incl. dental, a full Idexx lab suite and much more.
We currently operate only 4 days per week–Mon, Tues, Thurs & Fri from 9am to 4pm (doctor leaves at 4pm, office is open until 5pm). As a one doctor practice we produce $700K plus per year. There is untapped potential for 3 more service days and, if desired, after hour or night service. The potential to double the gross is very real.
We are aiming to transition the practice including real estate in the next 1-2 years.

My goal is to find a couple of veterinarians interested in ownership who will increase the service hours to the community. Being able to stay in the apartment within the clinic eliminates the immediate need for housing expenses.
Price is negotiable, based on a professional unbiased evaluation to determine the cost of the real estate and the practice.
I am willing to continue to work after the sale in a reduced capacity or on a relief type basis for a period of time.

If you are interested, please respond to GVC@mcn.org. A site visit can be arranged on weekends.
We look forward to supporting the next generation of veterinarians on the Gualala coast!
