Veterinary Technician or Assistant

Seeking technicians with the biggest hearts to work with the smallest patients! The Southern Maine Hospital for Small Mammals ( is Maine’s first hospital exclusively dedicated to the care of exotic companion mammals like rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, hedgehogs and chinchillas. We will be opening in the Shoppers Village plaza in Kennebunk in the Fall of 2023.

We are looking for technicians who possess a minimum of three years of experience working as both a surgical and an appointment/room tech. Licensing is preferred but not required; unlicensed techs must possess significant surgical experience. Experience with exotic companion mammal handling is strongly preferred. Strong client communication skills are a must. Our top priority is to hire friendly, collaborative teammates who value mutual respect, are open to new ideas, and demonstrate appreciation of all species, regardless of size.

Our surgical and treatment areas, patient ward and exam rooms were specifically designed with the needs of exotic patients in mind; the hospital includes a full in-house lab (Catalyst, ProCyte, Sedivue) as well as xray and ultrasound.

Benefits include 100% employer-paid medical, dental, vision, life and disability coverage as well as six weeks off each year (four weeks paid). Other benefits include a uniform allowance and an employer-matched 401K retirement plan.

If you are seeking a new opportunity and would enjoy working in the kind of positive, nurturing environment that puts both clients and patients at ease, we would love to hear from you! Please email your resume to
