We're putting doctors back in charge. Own your practice — really
It's time to dust off your childhood dream of being your own boss. At PetSmart Veterinary Services, we're making it easier than ever.
You’ve got this and we’ve got your back.
PetSmart Veterinary Services works on a true independent ownership model that’s unlike anything else. It’s a simple but powerful solution that gives veterinarians control of their practice in a reduced time-frame for reduced startup costs than what would normally be required. Additionally, PetSmart Veterinary Services helps with certain back-office support allowing veterinarians to focus more time on care, and less time on the day-to-day business operations.
Once we hand you the key, you are the owner of your practice!
If you’re looking for a catch, buy your dog a frisbee.
You’re probably wondering what’s in it for us? The answer is simple: we know the freedom of independence and rewards of ownership help motivate veterinarians to do great work. Great work inspires happy customers. And happy customers bring return business — to you and to the PetSmart store that hosts your practice. It’s a win-win.
