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




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.



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.


(be accountable)


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.


(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


(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.

To get into the nitty-gritty of each of these, just click on the icons. Then ask yourself: Are we more alike than different? Only you can answer that question. And we look forward to the possibility of finding out!

If you do, that’s perfect. Because we want our team to be the best veterinary professionals in the industry. And that means a commitment to never stop learning. We make it a point to give our team opportunities to join industry associations, attend continuing education courses and conferences, and keep up-to-date with the latest developments in veterinary medicine.

If you’re a new vet, is DEVELOPMENT on your high-priority list?

What Are the Best Cities for Veterinary Jobs in New Jersey?

For being such a small state, New Jersey packs a punch with all it offers! Whether you are interested in big-city living or small-beach-town cruising, the state has something for you.

Our top choice in New Jersey is Cape May. This is one of the most charming towns, with its historic Victorian homes and gorgeous beaches. Residents are friendly and welcoming, and as it is a small community, all are involved in making the city a wonderful place to live.

If you are looking for a more rural option, Bernardsville is a great one. It has excellent public schools and lots of families.

And, of course, you can’t talk about New Jersey and not mention Jersey City. Just across the river from Manhattan, Jersey City offers big-city living at a more affordable rate. You can take an easy train or bus ride into the city, but Jersey City itself has a thriving food and art scene—and the best views of Manhattan.

Are Vet Jobs in High Demand in New Jersey?

Yes, yes, and yes! The New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association has an ongoing survey that shows just how high the demand for qualified veterinarians is over half of the practices say they need more full-time veterinarians, and a third say they need part-time vets. And almost 60% say they need more veterinarian technicians. A quick search for job openings will confirm it: veterinarians are in high demand in New Jersey.

So, what are you waiting for? The state offers excellent urban living in Newark and Jersey City—not to mention proximity to New York City—as well as wonderful rural settings near the beach and rolling hills. If you are interested in living and working in New Jersey, apply today!
