CVT Needed!  

FixaPet is hiring!  We are seeking a full-time Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT) to add to our growing staff and expanding programs!  FixaPet is a HQHVSN program sponsored by the Clark County Humane Society in Neillsville, WI.  Since its inception, FixaPet has performed more than 21,000 spay/neuter surgeries.  And we’re just getting started! 

 

FixaPet is now expanding to add more spay/neuter surgeries each day, provide dental services, increase wellness appointments and vaccinations, and to ensure basic veterinary care.  We are excited about our future, and want you to be a part of it.

 

Our ideal candidate will be a team player with a positive attitude.  Must be currently licensed in the State of Wisconsin.  Previous CVT experience is required, as well as skills handling dogs and cats.  This position will work closely with our veterinarians and other staff.  Excellent oral and written communication skills are required.  We are looking for professional, friendly interactions with clients, with client education always important.  Attention to detail, efficiency, and organizational skills are a plus.  Compassionate care for patients is of the utmost priority.  Assistance with future plans to pursue Fear Free certification for the clinic is desirable. 

 

Basic tasks for this CVT position will include performing lab procedures, surgical prep, assisting with anesthesia, monitoring patients, taking vital signs, administering medications, phlebotomy, record keeping, and other duties as assigned.  Ability to stand, walk, stoop, kneel and crouch is needed, as well as ability to carry up to 50 pounds (heavier lifting will always require assistance from another staff member).  As the FixaPet program also provides the care for shelter animals residing at CCHS, a great opportunity also exists for becoming involved with our Shelter Medicine program.  Other duties may be defined as the FixaPet program expands.  We are looking for that special CVT to grow with us.  Ultimately, we are looking for a self-starter and go-getter willing to also take on responsibility for coordinating the surgical day, supervising appointments, being responsible for ordering supplies, utilizing staff to the best of their talents, and making FixaPet the best place to bring pets for their basic care. Our newest CVT will be a key part of our bright future!

 

At FixaPet we respect a positive work/life balance.  There are no night, weekend, or emergency hours.  Benefits include paid time off, health insurance, continuing education opportunities, professional stipend for license dues and professional memberships, and a beautiful working environment in Central Wisconsin.  While we are searching for a full-time CVT, part-time applicants will also be considered. Beginning pay is $15-20 per hour, depending on experience and efficiency.  We intend to fill this position ASAP.
