As an important player in the veterinary world, you have a million things on your plate. If ONLY staffing wasn’t a constant stress.

We know your struggle: Hire a staff member, lose a staff member. Fill a shift, find out four more need to be filled. Lather, rinse, repeat. Every time you make progress, something else happens to the precious schedule you created so carefully.

We’re here to tell you that you’re not alone.

Across the veterinary profession, 66% of full time job posts get 0 responses. That is STAGGERING.

Times are changing.

Many veterinarians don’t want to respond to job posts and sit for traditional interviews.

It’s time for something new and SO much simpler.

Smart practices can easily see that changing times require a different approach.

So what is the new winning formula to hire the veterinarians that your practice needs?

Here is a key secret that many practices don’t know or are simply ignoring:

Many vets are using relief work to secretly look for full time jobs!

Many veterinarians have been burned deeply by previous jobs. No matter how great your job sounds (and is!), they are wary of trusting employers again.

Vets don’t want to sign employment contracts after one interview anymore. They’ve been burned enough times that they want to shop secretly… they want to “test drive” a practice multiple times before considering full time employment.

(This is a great opportunity for your practice to “test drive” potential staff, too. The more both parties click, the more likely you’ll both be happy long term.)

So if you want full time vets, you need relief vets!

Many people within our profession either don’t know this or don’t want to acknowledge it. This is why they have such low success hiring professionals and such high turnover rates.

We want you to stop banging your head against the wall using antiquated staffing techniques that are doomed to failure.


a platform of opportunities trusted by
thousands of VETS and techs across the U.S.


Relief Rover’s employer membership was created for you if:

You’ve been posting on job boards, reaching out on social media sites, offering ridiculous signing bonuses, and STILL going crazy seeing NO results

You want to protect the profit margin of your practice while keeping your staff, your clients, your patients, and yourself sane and well cared for

You think you don’t need relief vets, but you’ll take them if necessary; you do need short term or full time employees

You’re a practice manager, practice owner, talent acquisition specialist, or other staff member in charge of hiring veterinary staff

You’re getting more and more discouraged and confused with staffing in the veterinary industry, which is making your life extremely stressful

You’re open-minded and ready to try new methods of staffing your practice – you can see the old methods aren’t working anymore

“We upgraded to a full enterprise subscription bringing on all of our practices.”

“After working with Relief Rover on a pilot with a portion of our hospitals, we upgraded to a full enterprise subscription bringing on all of our practices. The ROI is definitely there. Renewal was a no-brainer.”

—  Chris Wilkins
Director of Talent Acquisition, NVA Compassion-First

We constantly hear from practice managers, practice owners, and talent acquisition specialists… “Where are all the vets??”

Many practices are spinning their wheels trying to find staff that will actually stick. That’s because some vets and techs are so burned that they’ve completely lost faith. Some of them don’t even believe that happy, healthy practices exist. If they could just experience a positive work environment, they would believe again.

That’s where we come in! We’ve developed our platform while professing our love for our fellow vets and techs. We shower them with free resources, tools, discounts, and more. And that’s why thousands of them flock to Relief Rover for a respite from the current craziness of veterinary medicine.

Our platform is here to help you build relief relationships while proving how amazing your practice is. That way is better for you, too — you will only offer employment to your favorite vets and techs. It’s a recipe that’s more likely to lead to long-term satisfaction for everyone.

Vets trust us because they know we love them.
We have their best interests at heart.


Our highly regarded employer membership includes the two familiar parts of veterinary staffing:

(1) a job board where you can post ads and
(2) a pool of vets and techs (you can search them on our site).

But we’re different because we’ve created a low cost, all-inclusive subscription for you. No wheeling or dealing… No muss, no fuss. Just everything you need in one place, including access to the thousands of members we care for deeply.

We’ve designed a platform that gives you exactly what you want.

Get access to the relief rover platform that hundreds of clinics have used to staff their practices. Use our platform to build lasting relationships with vets and techs. In some cases, these relationships will turn into part time or even full time employees.

Dr. Cindy Trice: founder, CEO, and trusted relief expert

Why are we uniquely trustworthy?

Unlike other platforms, Relief Rover is run by experienced + trusted relief experts

Hey there! I’m Dr. Cindy Trice. I’ve spent the past 15 years as a relief veterinarian. During that time, I recognized “the great divide” between veterinary staff and employers. I’ve spent over 10 years working with industry professionals to understand the problems that cause veterinary practices to scramble for employees.

As our industry grows and shifts, old ways of staffing have become completely unreliable. Many vets and techs are struggling to rediscover the passion they once felt for our profession. That’s why I launched Relief Rover in 2018. Our relief-centered solutions are already helping hundreds of veterinary practices eliminate crushing problems with short term staffing, long term staffing, and overall mental health.

Now, we want to prepare your practice for success in an unprecedented era in our industry. Our team, technology, and vision just get stronger with time. This is the perfect time to join the Relief Rover family!


Don’t sink TONS of money in flawed platforms.

problems with various other platforms:

  • you pay overall sums of thousands or tens of thousands of dollars
  • you’re charged hundreds of dollars per job post
  • you’re slapped with high commission fees for each shift booked
  • you have NO opportunity to select the veterinarian coming to work for you
  • you have NO opportunity to communicate with the veterinarian before and after the shift
  • you’re discouraged from hiring vets as full time employees because there are high “buyout” fees
  • your overall cost is extremely high, cutting deeply into your profit margin

Up to 78% of our vets and techs are open to full or part time jobs.

Treat them right and you could find that there really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Relief Rover is the obvious choice for your staffing needs!

perks of working with Relief Rover:

  • you pay one low subscription fee for each practice location that needs staff
  • you can post an unlimited number of jobs for the practice locations with memberships
  • you’re never charged commission fees
  • you can meet/choose your vets and techs before they come to work for you
  • you can follow up with vets after their shifts if needed
  • you’re encouraged to hire vets as full time employees at the practice locations with memberships; there are never any additional fees
  • your overall cost is ridiculously low, allowing you to maintain a high profit margin


“I am blessed and grateful to Relief Rover for connecting me with an excellent relief veterinarian.”

“The veterinarian has excellent veterinary skills and knowledge managing the cases implementing excellent veterinary medicine.  The veterinarian is personable communicating effectively and professionally with our staff and our clients.  Furthermore, she responds to all communications in a timely manner and willing to assist with last minute requests to accommodate our scheduling needs.  When she is the doctor on duty, I always feel that the patients, clients, and hospital team are in good hands with her at the helm. She is wonderful and we are grateful to have her on our relief team.”

Frequently asked questions

Who is Relief Rover NOT for?

those expecting immediate success

We created our jobs platform to help vets and techs connect with employers like you. Just like a dating app, sometimes matches happen quickly. Other times, building relationships takes time. We can’t guarantee immediate success.

Be sure your job post highlights the special qualities of your practice. After posting, give it some time. We promise to keep expanding our network to increase everyone’s chances of a successful connection.

those only interested in old methods of staffing

We want you to be successful, so our philosophy is based on the new reality. Many vets are no longer interested in the old process of apply > interview > accept full time job. Instead, many vets are using relief work to try different practices before eventually accepting positions.

Here’s how to successfully increase hires and decrease turnover: form relationships with relief vets early and often, treat relief vets as part of your team, and maintain an enthusiastic practice culture. If this doesn’t sound feasible for you, Relief Rover is not for you.

those who want to negotiate our pricing

Our pricing structure is the absolute lowest in the profession. We designed it that way because our overall goal is to increase quality of life, NOT to make boatloads of money. Thank you for understanding that we cannot offer further discounts on our ridiculously low pricing.

Is the price a monthly fee or an annual fee?

We offer both. Our current fee is $50/month per practice location or $500/year per practice location. If you have more than 9 practices, we offer special pricing (email [email protected]).

Can I use one Relief Rover membership to staff multiple practices?

No. Our pricing is just too low for that! If we allowed that, our business would become unsustainable and our platform would cease to exist.

If you need to staff multiple practices, each practice will need its own Relief Rover membership. Each practice location with membership will enjoy unlimited Relief Rover privileges — unlimited job posts, unlimited candidate outreach, unlimited shifts, and unlimited hires. Never any additional fees.

If I pay for this subscription, will you try to upsell me later?

Absolutely not. We always feel gross when others try to upsell us, so we didn’t want to do that to you. The only stipulation is that each practice you manage needs its own separate Relief Rover membership.

Your Relief Rover membership includes absolutely everything you need. You’ll never be charged a dime more than your subscription fee.

To be clear:

  • No fees when you contact one of our members.
  • No fees for job posts.
  • No fees when you book a shift.
  • No buyout fees when you want to hire a member part time or full time.
  • You can go through any of those actions as MANY times as you want and you will NEVER get charged an additional fee.

Can I make posts for full time positions?

SHORT ANSWER: Absolutely!

LONG ANSWER: We recommend posting for relief positions. After you’ve worked with a vet or tech for awhile, you can consider offering a job.

Remember, many vets and techs are traumatized by previous work experiences. They may be using relief work to secretly test drive practices before considering employment. Some relief vets and techs have lost faith that happy, healthy practices are out there at all. They need to experience a positive work environment to believe it.

So build relief relationships while proving how amazing your practice is. That way is better for you, too — you will only offer employment to your favorite vets and techs. It’s a recipe that’s more likely to lead to long-term satisfaction for everyone.

What should I do if I don't find any vets or techs in my area?

Don’t worry! Every month, roughly 100 vets (or more) join Relief Rover. We gain about 20 techs a month.

Also, some vets and techs choose to hide their profiles from time to time. Their schedules may be temporarily full, or they may have decided to keep their relief work private from their current employers. That’s why it’s important to keep using your unlimited job posts so they can find you in job search. (See also the FAQ below: “What does it mean to be visible on your site? Are all your members visible?”)

Imagine you were fishing for potential matches on a dating app. What tactic would be more successful: Giving up after a day or a month? Or patiently continuing to put yourself out there and sort through any promising matches that come your way?

If you don’t find matches right away, be patient. We’re constantly working to expand our network to increase everyone’s chances of success : )

What does it mean to be "visible" on your site? Are all your members visible?

For employers: Once you complete your practice profile, you’ll be visible in our practice directory as long as you’re a member.

To be found in our job search, all you have to do is post a job.

For vets and techs: They can show or hide their profiles at any time. They may hide their profiles if they don’t want to be found by their current employers, or if their current schedules are fully booked. That’s why we recommend posting for relief positions frequently so that vets and techs can find you on our job board.

Do you offer individual job posts or candidate searches separately for a discount?

Not at this time. Most of the time, practices have trouble finding and hiring staff because they are using old methods of staffing like single job posts targeting full time positions and specific dates.

We would be doing you a disservice to sell you job posts and candidate searches a la carte. That’s why we started a ridiculously low priced subscription model that includes unlimited perks. That means unlimited job posts, unlimited candidate searches, unlimited shifts, and unlimited hires.

Do you screen your vet and tech members?

We don’t screen the vets and techs on our site, nor do we screen the employers. It’s an equal opportunity platform.

Instead of “one size fits all”, we operate with a “there is someone for everyone” mindset – both when it comes to vets and techs AND when it comes to veterinary employers.

We’re proud to have veterinarians that practice on every species, from small animal to large animal to exotics and more. We have vets that cover every scope of practice, from general practice to emergency medicine to specialty medicine. Our relief veterinarians have varying levels of experience and skills.

We hope you enjoy finding the vets and techs that “click” with your practice!

What if I struggle with technology?

Our platform is extremely easy to learn. It’s just a few clicks to log in, post a job, or search for vets and techs. If you can send an email, you can learn our platform.

Stop betting on old methods and losing every time. Embrace the new way of hiring!
