Veterinary Nurse (LVT)

Do you want to work with a compassionate, creative group of professionals who are building an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to end of life care for pets and their families?

We are looking for an LVT licensed in VA with a valid drivers license who would be able to provide between 5-15 hrs of care per week, on a flexible schedule. Most of the work is virtual (emails, phone calls, texts), and involves monitoring current hospice patients, but there will be 1-2 appointments per week involving in person visits for bloodwork, nursing care, medication delivery, etc. You must have access to WiFi or internet, a desktop computer or laptop, and an iPhone with a cellular plan, and a vehicle in good working condition.

We believe that compassionate care must start with ourselves, then extend outwards to those closest to us, before we can effectively provide compassionate care to others. We strive to achieve a balance between work, play, and rest. You will be able to create your own schedule and work from home (or the park!) much of the time, so self-direction, time management, and organization are important.

Ideally, we are looking for someone who has at least 2 years of experience in the veterinary field, confidence in their technical skills, and a solid understanding of medicine, but are willing to mentor the right candidate. Fluency with technology such as social media platforms, texting and calling apps, electronic medical records, and google apps (gmail, maps, etc) are a plus but not required.

The right candidate will:

• Have good communication skills—we work closely with our families to make sure everyone understands goals of care and problems are addressed before they become disasters, and we work closely as a team, in constant communication between our doctor, referring vets, and the care coordinator.
• Have flexible thinking—at end of life, our goals can change and our focus of care changes, so we may do things differently than we would in a full service hospital.
• Be nonjudgmental—every family and every pet is different, and the goals of care will be different, the values will be different, and their needs will be different. We meet people where they are and help them to provide the best end of life care possible in any given situation.
• Work independently and have good organizational skills—the freedom of working from home and setting your own schedule comes with responsibility!

You will be supported and encouraged to learn and grow. Hospice and palliative care is a new and growing field and we are a new and growing practice, so opportunities for education and growth are abundant for the right candidate! If all of this sounds exciting, please send a resume to [email protected] or contact us for more information.

Veterinarian (DVM)

Do you want to work with a compassionate, creative group of professionals who are building an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to end of life care for pets and their families?

We are looking for a veterinarian to join our growing end of life care practice. Initially, we need someone who can see between 1 and 4 home euthanasia appointments 1-2 days per week. The days worked and times scheduled can be flexible, and you can adjust your schedule from week to week as needed. As we grow, if you wish to add more appointments or days to your schedule, we believe this will be possible.

Candidates who have acupuncture training or an interest in pain management, hospice, and palliative care will have an opportunity to take on hospice cases and/or assist with management of hospice patients after they are comfortable with out protocols (3-6 months).

You must have a valid drivers license, DEA license, and a Virginia Veterinary license. who would be able to provide between 5-15 hrs of care per week, on a flexible schedule. You must have: access to WiFi or internet; a desktop computer, iPad, or laptop; a smart phone with a cellular plan; and a vehicle in good working condition suitable for transport of deceased pets (ie, hatchback or SUV). You must be able to lift at least 50 lbs.

We believe that compassionate care must start with ourselves, then extend outwards to those closest to us, before we can effectively provide compassionate care to others. We strive to achieve a balance between work, play, and rest. You will be able to create your own schedule, so self-direction, time management, and organization are important. We can help guide you and support you.

We believe that building compassion resilience comes not from avoiding the pain and suffering of others, but from knowing how to help and being empowered to provide relief from pain and suffering when needed.

Ideally, we are looking for someone who has at least 2 years of experience in the veterinary field, confidence in their technical skills, and a solid understanding of medicine, but are willing to mentor the right candidate. Fluency with technology such as social media platforms, texting and calling apps, electronic medical records, and google apps (gmail, maps, etc) are a plus but not required.

The right candidate will:

• Have good communication skills—we work closely with our families to make sure everyone understands goals of care and problems are addressed before they become disasters, and we work closely as a team, in constant communication between our doctor, referring vets, and the care coordinator.
