Pros

The best thing is being able to care for animals and to sometimes help find new homes for the ones who do not have a family yet!

Cons

Some hard things are seeing the very sick animals come in and there isn't anything you can do for but send them to dog and cat heaven!

    Pros

    It was 5 minutes from my house

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. Owner/veterinarian was a tyrant. Micro managed everything. Expected to know the job and computer in 6 weeks. Very difficult program. Not so much about the animals but how much money they can make.

    Advice to Management

    In order to have a successful business dont micro manage and expect people to be perfect. Treat people with dignity and respect and you will get the same in return. You have a high rate of turn over because your employees are miserable. Very stressful environment.

    Pros

    The idea behind the wellness plan is great. You get better owner compliance on annual blood work, radiographs and vaccinations than in other general practice. The pay is good especially when you are first out of school when you are first out of school. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    The staff is poorly trained. The goal seems to be to hire people at the lowest cost which means virtually no experience. The hours are ridiculous. I always feel rushed when talking to clients and examining patients. Most doctors I work with are acccustomed to arriving about 830am but not leaving until 930pm with no time for lunch and rare bathroom breaks.
