Hiring in the Following Service Area Locations: 

  • Service Area: East Bay, San Francisco, and Marin Counties
  • Service Area: South San Francisco, Mountain View, Palo Alto


Who We Are:

PetHospice is a well-established and rapidly growing hospice and end-of-life service started in the Bay Area of California in 2012 by Dr. Shea Cox, one of the country’s most respected leaders in hospice and end-of-life care. We take an interdisciplinary approach to care and our team consists of Veterinarians, RVTs, Care Coordinators, and Pet Loss Specialists providing superior in-home care. We do not take the place of the primary care veterinarian or specialist, but rather work collaboratively with them to provide adjunctive in-home options for palliative care and end-of-life services.

What Makes Us Different?

  • We make sure we take care of each other as well as the families we care for
  • We offer services and support to our clients 7 days a week from 9am-6pm, but each veterinarian chooses when and how much they want to work – it’s totally up to you!
  • Our appointment blocks are 2-3 hours in length, allowing for a relaxed, in-depth appointment – we don’t like stress!
  • Our team is arguably the greatest team on earth – you will be fully supported every single day
  • Because PetHospice is an in-home service, we are not tied to a specific location; we are looking to hire veterinarians in regions that have an established or potential need for our services
  • We are a highly creative and out-of-the-box team that continually pushes the boundaries of how we can do things better for the families we care for, and for each other

Key Responsibilities:

  • Lead with heart, always :)
  • Provide thorough in-home hospice and palliative care, pain management, and euthanasia services (or any combination of these services) to pets in a mutually agreed upon service region
  • Option to provide nationwide Telehealth services focused on Quality of Life
  • Ensure timely communication to the team and clients
  • Ensure thorough and timely completion of medical records – referring vets are our other clients
