Temporary Assignments lead to Great Careers! Job searches are humbling, exhausting, and difficult. Most times, you find yourself taking a position with a company that you aren’t feeling the best about. There is another option. More professionals choose staffing as a career step over placement because it is ‘Try it before you Buy it’ in the professional sense. Choose a career in an environment you enjoy.

If you're a veterinarian looking for great pay, outstanding benefits, and world-class customer service, a relief veterinarian job is right for you. There are many reasons why people choose temporary veterinary jobs. These include:

Relief Veterinary Work is Lucrative

Typical travel jobs can pay 15%-20% more on average than permanent positions. Travel jobs may also offer bonuses for completing a 13-week assignment or recruiting friends and colleagues. Vet-1-1 offers both referral bonuses for travel veterinarians, as well as veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants.


A temporary veterinary assignment is an unique opportunity that allows travel vets to work in the location of their choice throughout the front range (or Colorado). Whether you are looking for Durango in the winter or Aspen in autumn, a travel veterinary job will allow you to explore the state while working in top facilities. In addition, Vet-1-1 provides our veterinarians with mileage reimbursement.

If you prefer the freedom of working as contractor but are not looking to travel, your recruiter can work to help you find a local assignment right in your area. This will allow you to enjoy all of the same perks, while remaining close to your home or family and friends.

Work in a Variety of Settings

Working as a relief vet provides you with the opportunity to work at large specialty/emergency hospitals, small privately owned practices, small animal practices, and mixed-practice. You can choose a new setting to work in for each new assignment, or stay at the same facility for multiple assignments. When you work as a relief vet, the choice is up to you.

Build your Resume

Relief jobs provide veterinarians with the opportunity to practice in a variety of settings at leading facilities across Colorado. By working as a relief vet, you can benefit from numerous networking opportunities and establish lasting connections that will help advance your career as a veterinarian. These experiences, along with the variety of responsibilities and tasks you'll assume, make veterinary jobs a great resume builder. In addition, relief jobs allow you to build upon your skill set and advance your veterinary career by learning new practices and gaining valuable experience.

Dr. Jen and Chris

How and Why Vet-1-1 Was Created

Dr. Jen, a fourth generation veterinarian and Colorado native, and her husband Chris met outside of San Antonio, TX. Both had recently moved to the area - Dr. Jen started a position at a veterinary hospital - and Chris was a traveling Physical Therapist (we'll revisit this later). They stayed in the area for 2 years until Dr. Jen's father asked Jen to move to Colorado and work together (he was having health issues and couldn't continue to work a full-time schedule) or he would need to sell the family practice. Obviously, the two moved to Colorado and eventually bought the practice from Jens parents.

Like many of their colleagues, they have been humbled by practice ownership, and a few times unexpected turnover has hit them between the eyes. Along the way, they lost more staff due to being short-handed. That led to staff burn-out, and more turnover. They have made every hiring mistake along the way and were frustrated that there weren't any options similar to Chris' experience as a PT. There are options for temporary staffing in human health care, why not veterinary medicine? Eventually, the two connected the dots and decided to start a company that provides the same service found in human health care, but for veterinary clinics.
