Together we are empowering a healthy tomorrow...
Work CAN feel like play! Working in the veterinary field can be rewarding- there is nothing like helping someone take better care of their furry family member knowing you made a positive difference in the life of both the owner and the pet, and don't forget the warm fuzzies from puppy or kitten snuggles either! However, anyone in the veterinary field can also attest that this job can be stressful as well. When times are stressful working with coworkers that feel more like family can help bring morale up again. At Country Critters Veterinary Hospital that is exactly what we do!
Our Culture We feel the best way to provide the best care is to have the best staff possible. As a result we can be selective in choosing new members that fit well with the existing crew. Our culture can be summed up as follows:
Family oriented- Our facility is a family run business. This translates into encouraging (and expecting) work/ life balance with our staff. We try hard to work together as a team so no one person carries the entire day's responsibility making the day go faster and smoother. We rely on each other to accomplish tasks and make each day fun. We realize that families require flexibility and try to provide this as needed when scheduling shifts knowing that when helping each other someday our coworkers will be there when we need help as well.
Best foot forward- We strive to do this in every aspect of our job. We try hard to do our best with every interaction whether with clients or coworkers. We encourage education by providing in-house continuing education as well as continuing education opportunities through conferences or certifications. We want to help you expand your knowledge base as best as you can. The doctors always encourage questions from staff curious to learn why we do what we do.
We chose to think the best of each other- It really is a choice. We generate a positive working environment by focusing on the positives that each coworker brings to the day. By doing this, we can be compassionate in what we do and how we interact with each other shifting us into a workplace you want to be at instead of have to be at.
We help any way we can- Our goal as a practice is to help clients by providing the best care we can for their pets. We make a difference by educating clients about pet wellness and comforting them when they are struggling with difficult decisions. We also try to do this in the community at large. You will see staff and their families volunteering their knowledge and time at many events not limited to:
- Community chefs- a fundraiser that raises money to support Anderson School systems among many other charities
- We frequently offer our time and services to participate in local shelter events to help raise funds to provide for local pets in need
- The doctors take time to give talks to the local schools or special clubs about animal safety and health
Grow with us We feel strongly that knowledge is power. We strive to provide avenues for all our staff members to gain more knowledge about our field and develop confidence in their ability. We do this by providing mentorship for all new hires to give them a sounding board to voice any concerns and to provide hands on learning and advice so they may become fully trained and confident employees. We encourage those seeking additional certifications to expand their knowledge. You will often see interns or job shadows working with us as a way to encourage the next generation.
