Are we compatible?
Do we have an uncommon amount in common?
You’ve created a business with your own culture, personality, and style. We’ve done the same. Both have proven to be successful. Both are valid. Neither should cancel out the other. Neither should dominate. Instead, let’s find out if the two can be happily and ever-so-naturally merged! We’ll start by saying that we firmly believe that behaviors are values in action. As our AmeriVet team moves from concept to execution, each of us understands that we are working toward our mission every single hour of every single day.
Okay. That’s the theory. Now let’s talk reality. There are six ‘behaviors’ that are all about practicing what we preach:
Status quo is a status “no.” While effort is appreciated, we reward and celebrate results. We applaud those who set big, bold goals and achieve them
NO JERKS ALLOWED.
NO JERKS ALLOWED
It’s simple. Be the person you would want to work with and respect others. Trust that your teammates are working toward the same goal, even if their approach is different than yours.
PRACTICE BLAMELESS PROBLEM SOLVING
PRACTICE BLAMELESS PROBLEM SOLVING
Find solutions and don’t point fingers. Learn from the past, but don’t dwell on it. Find a path forward and always stay above the line.
TAKE IT PERSONALLY(be accountable)
TAKE IT PERSONALLY
Be accountable for your actions. Put your brainpower to work and look for the “how” instead of the “can’t.” Show initiative and be resourceful.
HAVE HUSTLE(keep moving forward)
Forward motion creates change. Look to the future and know that it’s okay to move quickly. Be willing to do what it takes to get the job done… plus a little bit more
TRUE PARTNERSHIP(think ‘we,’ not ‘them’)
Think “we,” not us and them. When we share the same goals, our partners win and we win – and a shared success feels better.

Where are veterinarians most in demand?
The answer is everywhere! Across the country, there is a deep need for more veterinary staff at all levels.
From receptionists to DVMs, animal clinics and hospitals need more support as the number of companion animals grows. That’s not even mentioning the need for large-animal veterinarians to support farmers and their livestock in rural areas.
If you are interested in working with animals, now is a ripe time to become a veterinarian.
What are the different types of veterinary careers?
Are you interested in working with animals? Wonderful! Many opportunities are waiting for you, from those which require years of school to those that need none. Find out which role might be the right fit for you.
A veterinary assistant helps veterinarian technicians and directors run the day-to-day operations smoothly. Vet assistants clean kennels, prepare operating rooms, sterilize equipment, and care for animals recovering from surgery. Because you do not need a bachelor’s degree to work as a veterinary assistant, it is a great place to start when figuring out if you want to work in the industry.
A veterinary technician is to a licensed veterinarian what a nurse is to a doctor. They perform routine checks on injured or sick animals, collect necessary specimens for laboratory tests, and administer medicine when directed by a veterinarian. As a vet tech, you can specialize in large or small animals and areas like emergency care, dentistry, or anesthesia. Vet technicians typically hold an associate degree in veterinarian technician practices.
An associate veterinarian is responsible for all the same duties as a veterinary practice owner, except, well, they don’t own the practice. This typically means that while they are not paid as much as the owner, they have fewer responsibilities and maintain a healthier work-life balance.
A veterinary medical director is the head veterinarian in a practice. They manage associate veterinarians and consult with them on medical and surgical cases. Veterinary medical directors are constantly thinking about improving patient care and ensuring that all in the practice follow industry regulations and protocols correctly. Some veterinary medical directors also handle finances, hire staff, and manage facility operations.
A veterinary practice manager makes sure that everything runs smoothly in the clinic. They order supplies, handle billing, and manage receptionists. Veterinary practice managers are also responsible for setting practice policies and guidelines and ensuring all follow protocols properly.
What are some of the biggest benefits of being a vet?
Working as a veterinarian is a highly rewarding career. For one, no two days are the same: every hour is filled with different animals, different needs, and different challenges. If you would be bored sitting at a desk every day, working in a vet clinic will provide you with ample variety.
Another excellent benefit of working as a veterinarian is high job security. Not just anyone can do what you do, and you can rest assured that your skill set will be needed well into the future. The veterinarian industry is expected to grow 18% by 2026 and isn’t looking to slow down after that.
It is also deeply meaningful to go to work every day and see real change happening before your eyes. You get to be part of healing animals, comforting and encouraging pet owners, and providing high-quality care at an affordable price.
On top of that, you will get to work alongside other animal lovers, and each day will afford new opportunities to learn and grow. But of course, the most significant benefit is that you get to work with animals. For a lover of furry creatures, nothing can be more rewarding than that.
