Who We Are

Animal Hospital of Cambridge is a small animal hospital with AAHA accreditation located in Cambridge, Ontario. We are part of the VetStrategy network of hospitals that provides routine preventative care as well as daytime emergency & critical care services 7 days a week. We have been providing excellent patient care since 2004, and in 2018 we were able to build a much larger and modern facility to serve our growing client base. We see a wide variety of medical, dental, emergency and surgical cases including orthopedic and soft tissue surgery. We are fortunate to have an in-house Board-Certified Surgeon available to our clients. We believe in empowering our technicians to utilize all of their skills and to never stop learning. Our ideal candidate will enjoy working in a fast-paced environment with a fun, supportive and dedicated team of professionals.   Every day is an opportunity to learn something new!  Experience is an asset, but new grads are welcome as we are able to provide training and mentorship.

We Value Our Technicians

Animal Hospital of Cambridge continues to offer a family-like atmosphere to its staff and clients.   We believe that veterinary clinics are an integral part of the community they serve and as such we put a large focus on community-based activities and initiatives, as well as raising OSCAR funds for our in-hospital pet charity.  Idexx in-house lab-station with SediVue, syringe pumps, IV pumps, dopplers, pulse-ox and other modern pieces of equipment are provided to aid technicians with patient care.   We focus on using fear-free techniques with our patients and sedation + hands-free radiology to reduce exposure to our staff and patients.   Shifts range from 8 - 12 hours, with techs sharing a rotation of weekends.   We do our best to provide monthly schedules with fair shifts amongst the entire team who have the flexibility to trade shifts if needed.
