Wouldn’t you rather be seeing your career path than worrying about your future and being stuck in the same old rut? Did you go to school to spend all your time commuting to and from the city or would you rather apply yourself while helping animals? At VCA South Shore, our highly talented team of veterinary professionals works together to manager a diverse and stimulating case load. Drama queens and slackers don’t last very long here. Nor do people who can’t contribute to the team. When talented people collaborate instead of compete, our patients receive amazing medical care in line with our mission statement: “where pet’s health is our top priority.” If you haven’t had the chance yet, check out the wide range of advanced diagnostics and specialized care we provide on a daily basis. 


VCA South Shore is currently seeking a Central Processing Technician to join our 28-doctor, 24-hour emergency/referral/multi-specialty and general practice in South Weymouth, Massachusetts – located just 20 minutes south of Boston.

We’ll be honest; VCA South Shore isn’t for everybody. If you aren’t interested in providing the gold standard of veterinary care utilizing all members of our team, then we are probably not for you.
