About our Clinic: Vida Veterinary Care is a full-service small animal general practice and emergency hospital offering high-quality medicine, surgery, and service to the Denver community.

Our diagnostic equipment includes a comprehensive in-house laboratory, digital radiography, digital dental radiography, ultrasound, and endoscopy.
Several of our veterinarians are trained to use endoscopy and laparoscopic surgery equipment, routinely performing lap spays, gastropexies, and liver biopsies. We would support any candidates interested in becoming proficient with endoscopy or laparoscopy. We are paperless and use Impromed for our electronic medical records.
Our associate, Dr. Rachelson, performs acupuncture and also utilizes our cold laser. Furthermore, we work closely with a board-certified cardiologist and an ultrasonographer to perform echocardiograms and ultrasounds as needed, and a board-certified surgeon comes in multiple times per month to perform orthopedic procedures.
At Vida, our general practice is open Monday through Friday from 7 am to 7 pm, with emergency services offered from 7 pm to 12 am, Saturdays from 7 am to 5 pm, with emergency services offered from 5 pm to 12 am, and only emergency services offered on Sundays from 8 am to 12 am. Ideally, we are looking for someone interested in working 3 ten-hour shifts, 2 pm to 12 am on weekdays and up to 2 weekends per month.
*Our emergency doctors are alone from 7 pm to 12 am seeing emergency cases and managing patients, so we do need someone confident in working alone and comfortable performing emergency surgeries.

We have additional resources for those not comfortable or familiar with exotic medicine. Our overnight technician is well-trained and stays until 7 am monitoring and performing any scheduled treatments on patients. You can learn more about our incredible practice at vidavetcare.com.
