We are currently looking for a Full Time Licensed Veterinary Technician to join our team! The responsibilities of an LVT vary considerably.

Responsibilities in general (and depending on which role they are filling) include knowing the appointment schedule for all doctors, assisting the Assistants with treatments, ensuring that the lab downloads get done (typically performed by reception), ensuring that the work list and follow up calls get done, ensuring that the prescriptions get filled. The lead Tx LVT will have a lot of help with these duties, a lot of it will be delegated, but the lead Tx LVT is responsible to making sure it does not get overlooked. The lead Tx LVT is also responsible for determining, with the help of the on duty doctors, if an emergency can be seen, and assign patients to be admitted. In addition the lead Tx LVT determines the lunch tumble. In general the lead Tx LVT is the “go to” person to find out what is going on and can direct/ answer questions.

LVT’s must build positive, professional relationships with clients and staff members. Must have their State and Federal License maintained. 10 CE credits must be earned each year. Must also receive training for CPR (to be administered from Belltowne Vet) once yearly.
