End- of- Life Veterinarian - San Francisco Bay Area
Ethos Veterinary Health
Location: San Francisco Bay Area, California
Type: Full Time
DVM or equivalent
Internal Number: 15740
When a beloved family member is at the end of their life, we want them to be comfortable and at home. The End-of-Life Veterinarian at Restful Paws serves our clients who want to be near their pets in their last days and hours.
The End-of-Life Veterinarian provides in-home end of life and euthanasia services to our patients across the Bay Area. Your home base will be one of our SAGE hospitals, but you'll serve patients who are not necessarily patients at SAGE. Doctors in this role will be mostly mobile: delivering in-home euthanasia services and providing Quality of Life consultations. The nature of the work requires doctors to bring a high level of compassion to their work and to be comfortable working independently. Doctors must have exceptional client communication skills and a high level of organization and follow through. If you have 2-5 years of experience in general practice or emergency care and a working knowledge of end-of-life care, we want to meet you!
This role is primarily a mobile practice, with travel throughout the Bay Area to delivery in-home euthanasia services. We are currently seeking veterinarians to serve the East Bay, South Bay and Peninsula.

Some of our values in action:

Innovation: Top technology and top skills - we are about pushing the envelope to serve our community.
Full-time or part time.
