Kopec Veterinary Associates is looking to add another champion to our team. We are a professional 3-4 doctor, 100% equine veterinary practice in Lancaster County, PA.

We value work-life balance, high quality service, kindness, and each other. We are passionate, honorable, flexible, and hard working. Our mission is to preserve the health and wellness of the horse through collaboration and partnership with our beloved clients. We are growing daily, busier than ever, and have a position open for at least one certified veterinary technician or veterinary assistant.
Our ideal candidate would be a certified veterinary technician, but we do not want to exclude a potential gem solely for their lack of certification… THIS MAY BE YOU! Whether you have worked in the industry for years or are just starting out, please inquire.

Ability to work independently
The ability to multi-task
A professional appearance
