Position Offered | Vet Technician | Boston South | Massachusetts

Wouldn’t you rather be caring for patients and seeing your career path than worrying about your future and being stuck in the same old rut? Did you go to school to be an integral player in a progressive veterinary team or did you do all that studying to give vaccines? Wouldn’t you prefer to be learning new skills every day rather than struggling to find continuing education credits at your own expense?


At VCA South Shore Weymouth, 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.

Our team of highly trained client care representatives and liaisons communicate with our clients 24 hours a day via phone, email and text – even sending pictures of their pets as they recover in our ICU unit.


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. But, if you’ve got compassion and a passion for exceptional veterinary care, then you need to apply now.
