These Vetco Clinic roles may be just right for you. 

“Vetco Clinics have created a wonderful avenue for me to keep up with general practice skills while I pursue my advanced laboratory animal medicine residency. I can pick up relief shifts whenever it suits my busy schedule. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the teams, the opportunity to teach veterinary assistants, to provide medical care for my patients, as well as answering client questions. Ultimately, the staff and the rapport I have established with the clients I see continues to draw me back to Vetco.”

Vetco has allowed me the opportunity to train not just my direct report, but my peers as well. I greatly enjoy educating and I have been presented with many opportunities to do so. I have become a member of many pillar groups, including groups focusing on future educational courses for our partners.

Vetco Clinic Operations Leader
Vetco gave me the opportunity to go further with my career than I thought possible. All you need is a good attitude and the desire to grow. There are many leadership positions in Petco and Vetco and one can apply to as many opportunities as they like.
One thing I love about being a Petco Partner is the environment! Everyone strives to help each pet parent find the best solutions for their pet. We work as a team to provide care from all areas whether veterinary care, nutrition, training or grooming.
