Careers with MN Pets

About MN Pets

Founded in 2010 by Dr. Rebecca McComas, MN Pets is a mobile practice providing end-of-life veterinary care for pets. We are a multi-doctor, 7-day per week in-home euthanasia, acupuncture/comfort care practice serving pet owners in Minneapolis/St. Paul and the greater 7-county metro area.

Veterinarian 

We all became veterinarians because we care about animals and their quality of life. Bring that meaning back to your practice of veterinary medicine by joining MN Pets and focus on supporting pet owners through the loss of their pet with gentle in-home euthanasia and quality of life consultations.

Take extra time to care for clients with one appointment every 1 hour 45 minutes and no more than 5 appointments per day. Leave behind the mad rush of a typical general practice.

We share our proven protocols. When you go on the appointment, your clients know exactly what to expect and you’ll be prepared for each type of situation. Our doctors are backed up by our trained support team who handles screening and scheduling. Focus on helping and connecting, instead of finances.

This is a full-time or part-time position for a salaried associate with excellent benefits (medical, 401k, PTO, CE, license and more). You’ll have flexibility in determining your schedule which is good for work-life balance.

Our team of veterinarians is supportive of one another and provides extensive training and support, as well as sharing best practices. As leaders in the growing field of end-of-life care since 2010, advancement opportunities are available.

We look for veterinarians who are compassionate, independent and motivated to make a difference. Recent graduates are encouraged to apply.
