Associate Veterinarian


Chanticleer Veterinary Hospital is looking for a full-time Associate Veterinarian to add to our 1-DVM team. We are in beautiful Santa Cruz, California – where the fun only begins at the beach! With over 14 state parks, wineries, museums, farmer’s markets, and outdoor activities like hiking, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, canopy tours and mountain biking, there is plenty to choose from. San Francisco is also an hour away with the rest of the Bay Area within proximity.

Our goal at Chanticleer Veterinary Hospital has always been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care.  Our team displays an unrivaled commitment to our clients through continuing education, technological advances in veterinary medicine and service, and most importantly, administering compassionate care to all pets entrusted to us.

To be productive, our well-trained staff is ready to assist our clinicians. We can also offer hands-on mentorship from our experienced Medical Director, so both seasoned practitioners and new(er) graduates are welcome to apply!

We are embarking on a journey to revitalize our clinic this year. By renovating, we are excited to improve the quality of care we can provide to our expanding generation of pet owners!

We look forward to hearing from you!
