Work-life balance in the veterinary field isn't the stuff of folklore.
Our clinic was founded with the vision of being a place for spectacular people who were on the brink of career burnout from being overworked, overbooked, and undervalued to reconnect with their love of animal care and the people that come along with it, and then give them a healthy place to grow into the professionals they always dreamed of becoming. The management philosophy here at Leo’s Pet Care has an emphasis on self care at its core, and respect for all those on our team in order to foster an environment that allows our staff to be able to fully commit to quality care for every pet that comes through our doors. Think of it like the oxygen mask concept: You must put on your own oxygen mask first before you can be of any help to others.
Why work with us?
Working at Leo’s Pet Care you will hear laughter around every corner and feel a casual energy in the air. We know that there is a time for seriousness, but equally as important is the ability to laugh at challenges that arise in our often difficult line of work. If you wish to grow in your career in small animal primary care, only you can hold yourself back at Leo’s! Our team of doctors, management, technicians and assistants have a wide array of styles and expertise that they will gladly share if you are eager to learn. Lastly, by choosing to work with Leo’s Pet Care you are choosing to become part of our work family. Coming to work each day means that you spend just as much time with your team at work as you do your family at home. We demand respect for one another and compassion at all times. Life is too short to work with people who can't get along despite differences and we encourage open communication. We are constantly evolving and improving ways in which we can thank our team for all of their hard(fun) work. Making sure that you not only have a life at work but also the time and energy to spend at home with family, loved ones and doing the things that make you, you!
