Purpose in Action


Living in New JerseyBecause NorthStar VETS is one of the last privately-held specialty practices in the tri-state area, the culture is different than you'll find at corporate hospitals. The atmosphere is collaborative, meaning that you'd have direct access to many veterinary specialists in over a dozen specialties with whom to consult, and this is encouraged with daily morning cage-side rounds. This team also ranks nationally as one of the best for referring veterinarian satisfaction. You should also know that NorthStar VETS does not offer general medicine and has no residents or interns, which means your immediate colleagues would all be trained veterinary professionals at the top of their game.

Team members at NorthStar VETS enjoy a nice work-life balance, a tuition reimbursement program for veterinarians, money for continuing education, a higher than average support-staff-to-doctor ratio, friendly and helpful coworkers, management who listens, plus great pay and other benefits. If you are hard-working, innovative, compassionate, and want to practice the best medicine for your patients, this may be the right fit for you.



Where You Can Make a Difference, Not Just a Living

We're continually on the lookout for exceptional team members who share our dedication to making a difference, not just a living, and strive to provide outstanding patient care, empathetic communication with pet parents, and work as a true partner with our referring community.
