We care for our clients
Our clients count on us to veterinary care for their beloved family members. We take that trust they place in our hands extremely seriously. We understand a client’s visit to our hospital is stressful, and we always seek to do our best to put our clients at ease and provide the care their pets need.
We care for our team
Our employees form the heart of VetCare. We offer all employees competitive wages and benefits, room for professional and personal growth, and a positive team environment. Our people are our priority—we focus on taking care of our employees, so they can focus on taking care of your pets.
VetCare’s story began when our founder, Andrew Black, tried every cure under the sun to provide relief for skin issues that Buddy, the family dog, was struggling with. This was Andrew’s AHA! moment as he realized that these days pets aren’t animals as much as family. This led him to explore the clinical aspect of taking care of these much-loved patients.
VetCare was officially founded in 2015 upon acquiring two veterinary practices, where we worked side-by-side with teams to understand every aspect of the industry. Along the way, we realized the importance and value beyond a practice’s operational requirements, which is why we work hand-in-hand with owners throughout the whole transition process.
Today, VetCare is a proudly independent, Vancouver-based company focused exclusively on acquiring and operating veterinary practices, while keeping each practice’s heart intact.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Running a successful veterinary practice needs so much more than just a good operating model. It needs heart, in-depth knowledge of patients and the community, and a dedicated team. This is why it’s often so hard for veterinarians to step away—who will care as much as you do?
Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive transition package beyond a financial agreement. Because you shouldn’t have to just walk away. We strive to make your transition goals come to life by customizing your sales arrangement to achieve your unique objectives. And we also provide the emotional support you need to plan your future.
Our purpose is to help grow your practice to the heights you’ve always dreamed of, protect your legacy, and guide you through the transition to your next chapter.
Let’s do it together.
I founded VetCare on the idea of delivering excellent patient care by combining professional management with a talented medical team. I am so excited to have you, and your practice join us on our journey to become veterinary leaders in Canada!
