Registered Veterinary Technician

Full-Time

Note From Management

Hello! My name is Cesar and I am the practice manager at TLVH! I am a clinical manager, which entails keeping the hospital financially afloat, while jumping in as a veterinary technician whenever necessary.

Job descriptions and applications are extremely redundant in that they all say the same things in the exact same tones. I would like to break through the cold blocks of black and white and tell you, a prospect, that Terra Linda Vet Hospital is a great place to work. I cannot possibly express that with further authenticity.

The values that we stand behind are those of transparency, honesty, ethics, and high standards of care. We lead via intellect, planning, patience, and strategies that arise from the combination of the experience of those who are most seniors regardless of roles. We encourage our team to solidify their skills with education and practice. We provide avenues of growth in all of the ways that we possibly can.

I would like to encourage you to allow us a phone interview to get to know you, your dreams, and the direction in which you are traveling in your life. Perhaps we may be traveling towards the same quality of life.

Thank you again for considering joining us.

Cesar H.
Veterinary Practice Manager
