What you can look forward to as an associate at Caring Hands Animal Hospital:

  • Not working over 40 hours/week. You can expect a 4-day work week with a rotating Saturday shift and no on-call responsibilities. Choose 6, 8, or 11-hour workdays and create the work-life balance you’ve dreamed about. We will work with you to find a schedule that allows you to thrive both inside and outside of work.

  • Designated veterinary scribes. You can focus your time and attention on treating your patients with the aid of your vet assistant. Vet assistants bring clients into exam rooms, collect your patient’s history, help with routine procedures (blood draws, catheter placements, etc.), and scribe for your appointments. The teamwork that we implement in our everyday practice ensures our hospital operates smoothly and efficiently.
  • Established mentorship program. With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Vitulli has created an established mentorship program for new graduates and experienced veterinarians depending on their comfort level. Mentorship is provided by Caring Hands’ multi-doctor team and includes:
    • Dr. Bustamante or Dr. Caprio as your assigned medical mentor
    • 2+ hours dedicated time weekly for case reviews and meetings
    • 6-8 weeks of surgical skills mentorship with Dr. Vitulli for new graduates as needed

    As the founder of Caring Hands Animal Hospital, Dr. Vitulli is committed to your success and professional development and will tailor the mentorship program to your needs

  • Transparency with windows in all rooms! Our practice was built with the clients and patients in mind. We value transparency and fear-free medicine which we demonstrate by:
    • Having windows into all areas of the hospital including the surgery suites for clients to watch if they choose
    • Keeping our patients in the exam rooms with their families to perform routine procedures and treatments to avoid separating them from their loved ones
    • Reserving time for clients to visit their pets in the hospital after surgeries
  • A 5,000+ sq ft. hospital with 8 exam rooms. Our spacious building allows you to practice medicine in a comfortable environment. Our well-equipped hospital gives you the opportunity to practice high-quality medicine that both your clients and patients deserve. Want to see where you’d work?
