We believe this is the key to our success and longevity.”


We were founded with the belief that pet care providers have the noblest hearts yet often struggle with the demands of delivering high quality care to others while maintaining their own personal well-being.  Our entire team is committed to creating a new employee experience, one that allows the dedicated veterinary care provider to do both.

With our extensive veterinary background, we have put a great deal of thought and resources into every aspect of the employee experience: physical space, compensation, benefits, technology, equipment, caseload, and staffing.  We believe the team member experience is an essential part of petcare reimagined.

  • Compensation + benefits – Highly competitive package including an excellent base salary + production, merit, bonuses, profit sharing, short and long-term disability insurance, health benefits, continuing education, and retirement savings.
  • Priority on well-being - Closed to veterinary appointments on Sundays, flexible scheduling, and a caseload that allows our team to spend more time with pets and their parents to offer an elevated experience.
  • Technologically forward – Leading edge technology in our highly interactive client-facing mobile app, information management system, and other technologies that enhance your ability to deliver high-quality medicine and a best-in-class client experience.
  • Leading edge equipment –Digital dental radiography, Doppler, portable ultrasound, and lift tables.
  • Opportunity to lead – Empower you to do what you do best, be a leader where you are and function at the top of your training and expand your capabilities in interest areas that will give our clients more choices.
  • Freedom in a framework –Freedom to individualize how you achieve success.  From developing areas of special interest in general practice to customizing schedules, formulary selections, and choice of referral and emergency service partners, we provide the team the ability to influence these choices for their centers.
