Emergency Veterinarian at Pacific Veterinary Specialists


We are seeking a dedicated, compassionate emergency veterinarian to join our growing team.  We are a busy small animal referral hospital located in sunny Capitola on beautiful Monterey Bay.  Our team includes specialists in Critical Care, Internal Medicine, Surgery, Cardiology, and Radiology.  Our ideal candidate has completed a small animal internship or has equivalent experience.  The schedule will include night and weekend duties.  Excellent communication skills, love of emergency medicine, and ability to multi-task are valued attributes.  


PVSES emphasizes high quality medicine, small town compassion, and a collaborative hospital culture that feels like family.  Ample opportunities for mentoring and continuing education are offered and encouraged.  Our emergency service has a long proven history of excellence with a loyal referral base and dedicated, highly trained support staff.   Our clientele is educated and motivated.  Emergency doctors work closely with the Specialty services and have full access to newly renovated, fully equipped surgical suites including Ligasure and an array of endoscopes for foreign body retrieval.


We actively support a healthy work-life balance.  Flexible scheduling provides the opportunity for extended blocks of personal time and facilitates an active outdoor lifestyle to take advantage of our unique location nestled between the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. 


We offer a generous compensation package that includes health, dental, vision and life insurance, disability insurance, signing bonus, CE allowance, and 401K plan.  Benefits also include morning stops to watch the sea otters, kayaking with the whales, and celebrating the end of a busy ER weekend at one of the many area microbreweries.  For immediate consideration, please apply for this position at or email your CV to Dr Shannon Bass at
