Join the Woodside Animal Hospital Team

SIGNING BONUS for the right candidate

Woodside Animal Hospital is proud of many of things, one of which is our ability to work with technicians to help them become better than they ever imagined. It is easy to look at our website and see….
We are always accepting cover letters and resumes for qualified and experienced individuals who are passionate about the veterinary industry, and are especially interested in meeting exceptional DVMs and Licensed Veterinary Technicians.

Thank you for your interest!


Woodside Animal Hospital is growing, and we are looking for a team of medical professionals that are excited to join us!  We believe the healing process begins when doctors work with clients to find answers.  Although we are a busy hospital, we believe you should have adequate time with your patients.  That is why we offer half-hour appointments and allot for a two-hour appointment-free period every day to catch up and for lunch.

We are proud to offer a culture of:

  • colleagues that support you and management that values your time
  • medical plans tailored to our patients
  • a great team that is encouraged to thrive in areas that interest them
  • value our staff and offer exceptional medical, dental, and 401k benefits
  • treating our clients like humans, not numbers

What we ask of you:
Our veterinarians set the tone for the hospital.  You are the ideal candidate if you:

  • thrive on staying busy but can remain calm and with a positive attitude.  Healthcare does not always follow a schedule.  We are a relaxed group, but emergencies do happen.
  • like people as much as you like animals.  Communication is critical.  If you like sitting on the floor with your patients while talking to their people, and you communicate well with our staff, you will fit in perfectly with our team!
  • enjoy the exam room as much as the surgery suite.  We would be even more excited if you have an affinity for oral health and dentistry!

Get away from traffic jams and unrealistic living expenses:
Port Orchard, immortalized in Debbie Macomber’s books as Cedar Cove, is a semi-rural seaside town characterized by friendly people and a peaceful pace of living. We are surrounded by idyllic views of the Puget Sound and local snowcapped mountains; the recreational and cultural opportunities are only limited by your imagination. Your off-time could find you exploring symphonies comedy shows, going to sporting events, Home and Garden or Flower show, riding mountain bikes, hiking, boating, seeking antique treasures, and much more. Although Port Orchard offers the escape from crazy city living, the introduction of the fast ferry has made getting to Seattle is easy when you want to see a Seahawks or Sounders game.

If you are a licensed veterinarian, we look forward to meeting you! Please submit a cover letter and resume to be considered for this position in the area below. Although we appreciate all who apply, this position is for licensed veterinarians only. We will not review applicants without licensure.
