Here are what some of your peers have to say:

“I love that Harmony is a private practice and not a corporation. Harmony is interested in and recommends what is needed for the patient. We aren’t afraid to try new treatments or treatment modalities, and the practice is not just concerned with what’s best for the bottom line. Harmony is a busy, busy practice…that’s important to me as a RVT because I want to use my education and improve my skills, and not being bored is great, too! I feel I have a voice and can contribute to constantly improving this practice.” -A.L.

“Harmony is a fulfilling place to work in my chosen profession. Not only do we practice great medicine, but it’s also a family work environment.”

“Working at Harmony allows me to use my technical skills on a day-to-day basis.  I enjoy working in a Tech-driven environment where the Doctors trust the Technicians for various responsibilities throughout the day.  Harmony is a fast-paced veterinary hospital that allows you to provide high quality-of-care to pets without losing the attention to detail.  It is an added bonus to work alongside co-workers who obviously care about their jobs as much as you do.  The Harmony family consists of hard working individuals who come together and create a dynamic team to work with.  After working in other clinics I can’t imagine working anywhere else other than Harmony Animal Hospital.”

“We blur the line between professional and family with our clients. Our relationships are warm and real, and that ensures we can treat our patients like our own pets. Harmony represents the essence of teamwork – we help each other throughout the day and at the end of the day. When times get tough, we’re there for each other, and new team members are always welcomed in and made to feel at home. On top of that, we offer unparalleled veterinary services for our clients and patients.”
