About Us: 

Lombard Veterinary Hospital was established in June 1959 by Dr. Paul and Mary Jo Arndt to provide the animal population of greater DuPage County with a complete health care facility. Some of our clients remember the early days when Dr. Arndt’s family lived in the apartment upstairs. Ownership passed to youngest daughter, Dr. Georgianne Arndt Ludwig, in October 2012. We are a full-service, American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited veterinary hospital, capable of handling most medical and surgical cases. Our experienced staff includes eight full-time veterinarians and a support staff of forty. AAHA accreditation means we hold ourselves to the highest standards of veterinary medical service, which we are extremely proud of.

Job Description: 

A Veterinary Technician directly handles inpatient and outpatient care, working hand-in-hand with veterinarians.

Technicians play a key role in communicating with clients in person and by phone for follow-up care and patient monitoring.
