Do you love making a difference in the quality of life for pets and their families? Would you enjoy living in a place with a small-town feel while being only 20 miles from downtown Atlanta? Combine the two by becoming our next full or part-time associate at Douglas Oaks Animal Hospital.
At Douglas Oaks Animal Hospital our goal is to provide 5-star care for our patients and clients. Read our reviews to see what our clients have to say about us. We have the best clients in the region who appreciate our efforts. We take the time to communicate with clients, helping them make the best decisions about their pet’s healthcare. We use low-stress methods when working with our patients. Their physical and emotional comfort is a priority for us. We believe in the importance of preventive medicine, using all of our diagnostic tools and training to help our patients be happy, healthy, and pain-free because they are family members too. We work closely with local specialists, referring our patients when that is what is best for them.

We have a place on our team for someone with excellent communication skills, who likes being part of a team, and who shares our dedication to patient well-being. We are big fans of work/life balance!
