  • Full-time

Company Description

The Animal Emergency and Specialty Center of NWA is a well-established and growing emergency and critical care practice.  We are the only after hour facility in the Northwest Arkansas area and have a large pool of supportive referring veterinarians.  Our practice is fully equipped with digital radiography, large touch screen monitors in all client rooms, Ultrasound, Idexx laboratories in house, and a ForceTriad electrosurgical system.   Just as important, we have a friendly, highly skilled, motivated, and fun-loving staff.   As a team member at our practice, you would be working a combination of day, night, weekend, and holiday shifts.  We are very flexible with scheduling and are willing to work around requests, within reason.  Our practice is remarkably busy, so it is important for our staff to be able to handle high-stress situations, multi-task well, and have good communication skills.  Our technicians and assistants are highly utilized at the top of their skillsets and are constantly learning new techniques. We want our staff to be hands on! In July 2022, we will be relocating to a new and larger facility to better accommodate our growing staff and clients.

Northwest Arkansas is home to Crystal Bridges-a world class art museum, the state’s largest live-music amphitheater, and a multitude of distinctive historic downtowns.  It is also the home to four state parks, making it a prime destination for hiking, biking, and anything outdoors.
