Veterinary Independence


PetSmart Veterinary Services works on an ownership model that’s unlike anything else.

It’s a simple but powerful solution that gives veterinarians control of their practice for reduced startup costs than what would normally be required. Additionally, PetSmart Veterinary Services offers back-office support so veterinarians can spend less time on the mechanics of running a business and more time on care.
