Pine Animal Hospital is in search of veterinarians eager to join us in our commitment to providing high quality medical and surgical care in a friendly, customer service oriented environment. We are a continually growing practice located in downtown Long Beach, less than a mile from the beach. We are a completely paperless practice with state-of-the-art equipment including in-house lab machines, digital ultrasounds, digital whole-body and dental radiography with AI reporting, ultrasonic dental scaler, video otoscope, digital microscope, multiparameter monitors, electrosurgery machine, and K-Laser cold laser. Furthermore, we have Board Certified Surgeon's and Internal Medicine Doctor's that we collaborate with and come in for advanced cases when we need. They are all great teachers as well, so the learning and advancement of knowledge and skills never stops. All of our records, including images and lab results are kept in the cloud, and our client communications platforms include phone, email and text messaging. Yes that means you don't have to spend hours after appointments sitting in the hospital to finish medical records. Needless to say, we pride ourselves on using technology to create the best possible work-life experience for our whole staff while delivering the best pet care experience possible for our patients and clients.
The ideal candidate is seeking a job where continual and constant development of medical knowledge, surgical skills, growth, teamwork and client education are not just promoted, but completely supported. We are looking for candidates who have a sense of purpose about practicing best-in-class medicine the right way (without any expectations of upselling and quotas). Personality and good communication skills are the traits that we are looking for most. Whether you are looking for full-time or part-time, a general practitioner with a special interest, or specialize in an alternative medicine, we will support your needs to achieve your goals. All levels and new grads are welcome to apply.

How We Are Different
TECHNOLOGY: We leverage the best technology out there to create the most efficient and time-saving process in practicing medicine. We use technology in order to make client communications seamless and efficient.
INTEGRATIVE: We are integrative, so we combine multiple different methodologies to get the best possible outcome for our clients and offer more options to suit a wider population with differing wants and values.
NO PRESSURE: We do not push clients into doing things. Our job is to make recommendations and educate. In our view, the best and only way to practice medicine is to educate clients on how, what, why and when, and allow the client to make the most informed and best decision(s) for themselves.
LIFESTYLE: We are a lifestyle practice. While we have production bonus, we don’t have production quotas. This is not a sales job and you will never be told that you’re not offering or pushing enough services or products. You will rarely if ever work beyond your scheduled shift.
SUPPORT: Every doctor and staff member is fully supported and backed. We expect every doctor and staff member treated with the same utmost dignity and respect. Clients who show a lack of respect for anyone at the hospital are asked not to return.
WORK-LIFE BALANCE: Through creating a close-knit collaborative team culture and utilizing functional technology, our goal is to not only support in theory but to provide the tools for the best work-life balance in the industry.
