Lend a Paw Save a Bra 2015

IMG_1096Our clinic is once again participating in the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk in Albany’s Washington Park on Sunday October 18th.
In anticipation of the event our employees are doing individual fundraising and encouraging our clients to make a donation when they are in the clinics for appointments.
Our clinic team has set a fundraising goal and will be weekly prizes for the employee with the most donations in each week of the campaign and a grand prize to the employee raising the most money to be awarded after the walk.
There are a variety of ways to support our fundraising efforts. We will have items for sale at The Boght Veterinary Clinic’s Fall Festival on Saturday October 17th including craft items, snacks and bake goods, with all the proceeds going to the team and helping us to reach our goal.  You can find us on Facebook and follow the link (no bucket of ice water required!). Or visit the campaign website at http://main.acsevents.org/goto/boghtoakwood to make a team or individual donation.
We are proud to once again support the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” fundraiser  and hope you will consider making a donation to this great cause.

Now Hiring!

Now Hiring!

making stridesThe Boght and Oakwood Veterinary Clinics are hiring! We are looking for highly motivated individuals to join our team!  We have part time positions opening up in the next few weeks and are looking to fill them with people who have a strong work ethic and a love for animals.  We have part time positions opening up for both reception and veterinary assistant!

Receptionists are the face of our clinic and the front line in helping our clients and patients.  Whether it’s answering the phones, scheduling appointments or checking patients in, our receptionists need to be upbeat and professional.  They are responsible for greeting clients in a professional manner and dealing with inquiries on the phone and face to face.  They supply information about the practice to the general public and our new and existing clientsfall festival.  They could be asked to transport a patient to treatment for fluids or suture removal, or they could be filling medications called in to our in-house pharmacy.  With the fast-paced nature of our practice, multitasking is a great skill to have and being calm under pressure is a definite must.

The veterinary assistant is the doctor’s “right hand man”when it comes to appointments and surgery.  Whether it’s holding a patient during an exam, assisting the veterinarian during surgery or providing nursing care to a hospitalized patient, our assistants put the care of the patients first.  They also assist our Licensed Veterinary Technicians with holding for blood draws, clip nails or other tasks that the technicians perform.  Our assistants take medical histories at the beginning of appointments and relay the information to the doctors.  They are an integral part of the care for our patients!

If either of these positions seems like something you would be interested in, stop in to either clinic today to ask for an application!

Now Offering Mobile Veterinary Services

Are you short on time?  Do you think your dog would be more comfortable being treated in his own home?  Does your cat disappear under the bed when you get the carrier out to bring her to the office?  If you answered yes to any of these questions then we have news for you!

The Boght & Oakwood Veterinary Clinics are excited to be offering mobile veterinary services to our clients and their pets. We’re starting out small, but hope to continue to grow this new offering to our list of services.

Dr Nicole Cox will be scheduling house calls for routine exams and vaccinations on Tuesday afternoons and evenings. She is also able to come to your home to preform humane euthanasia.  Since this is such a difficult decision to make, she will do her best to accommodate your schedule for this service.

If you haven’t met Dr Cox, find out more about her on the staff page of our website.
Less stress for you and less stress for you pets is a win for everyone.  Please call our either office if you would like more information about scheduling a house call with Dr Cox.
