Careers

At Kahu Vets we recognize that our pets hold a special place in our lives. We believe

that they deserve both a clinic environment and standard of care reflective of how

much they mean to us. Our mission is to provide accessible, compassionate, individualized veterinary services, guided by a deep respect for the well-being of all creatures. Through our expertise and dedication, we strive to become the trusted guardians of our clients' beloved pets and to work alongside them in supporting their specific needs for health and happiness.

With every patient and client we welcome, we embody the spirit of “kahu”, -- steward and protector. We are honored to be the ones entrusted with their safe keeping.

If these ideas resonate with you, we are looking for all care team positions to join us at our brand new, privately owned practice in Toronto. Our goal is to build a team of people who believe deeply in the vision and space we’re creating together. 

 

Kahu Animal Hospital is the combined vision of two veterinarians who have been in practice in Toronto for the past 20 years. Located in Yorkville, the clinic consists of 4 thoughtfully designed floors and centered around offering clients a truly unique concierge level experience. Throughout the 6000 sq ft of space, we have focused on creating a facility that will provide a warm and welcoming environment, extended hours to be there for our patients, the latest technology - both diagnostically and in service support, such as tablets and dictation software, Casco kennels in all treatment rooms, caters to low stress visits and thoughtful high level client service. Due to the practice owners' reputations and networks built throughout their careers, we have access to a variety of specialists and the ability to bring in these supportive connections to help in elevating our medicine even further. We are excited to create a space together that allows us all to return to what veterinary medicine is supposed to be about - providing care to the pets that need us and to the Kahu’s that love them just as much as we do.
