About the Job
PetSmart Veterinary Services works on a true ownership model that’s unlike anything else. Are you a Veterinarian looking for the independence and freedom to own your own practice? Are you a Veterinarian who is looking for a career path towards leadership and professional growth? Do you enjoy mentoring less experienced DVMs and creating hospital protocols that improve processes and decrease stress? Are you a big picture thinker who cares about every individual on your team? If so, we would love to work with you.
We are looking to fill positions in: Greater Atlanta / Greater Philadelphia / Greater Raleigh / Eastern Coastal Florida / Greater Chicago / Ohio / Kentucky / Illinois / Texas / Tennessee / Mississippi / Missouri + more
Experience the independence you have been looking for. We offer a simple but powerful turnkey solution that gives veterinarians full control of their practice for significantly lower startup costs than what would normally be required. Additionally, PetSmart Veterinary Services offers professional back-office support so veterinarians can spend less time on the mechanics of running a business and focus on care.
As an experienced veterinarian, you bring the knowledge, drive, and skill required to run a successful practice. PetSmart Veterinary Services will provide the location, facilities, and support infrastructure to help you succeed, including:
- Recently remodeled, state-of-the-art 600-1,200 sq. foot in-store hospital equipped with Idexx blood and urine analyzers, new cloud-based PMS, automated inventory control solutions, and top of the line pharmaceuticals at discounted prices
- Brand recognition and built-in customer base from PetSmart shoppers
- Assistance with pricing, marketing, recruiting, consulting, reporting, and more
- Tech support
- Vendor negotiations
- Routine cleaning and maintenance
Own your own practice. Realize your vision of building your own business. With ownership, you get to build your dream team, drive company culture, and keep the equity you earn. Plus, you’re free to focus on what you love most — caring for pets and serving their parents — while PetSmart supports your back office.
Or join as an employee. Bring your talent to a dedicated team. Work under an owner-doctor and receive the potential to earn a higher productivity percentage compared to working for a hospital conglomerate. Looking for mentorship in a supportive, caring environment? Look no further. Best practices, business strategy, and financial advice will be shared. If you’re curious about ownership but not ready for it today, this is the best way to keep the door open for the future.
Access to the best talent. Attracting and retaining the best talent is critical to a successful practice. There are great incentives when working for an independent owner-doctor that can't be offered through other means.
Accelerated expansion. Thanks to the geographic reach of PetSmart Veterinary Services, you'll have the opportunity to grow across the country without having to orchestrate every move, potentially opening many locations simultaneously.
Mutually beneficial relationship. We’ll support you where we can and stay out of your way everywhere else. We know independence motivates veterinarians to do great work. This inspires happy customers and generates return business — to you and to the PetSmart store that hosts your practice. It’s a win-win.
Build long-term wealth. Ownership isn’t just about what’s best for you today — it’s about realizing a brighter future. You can build equity, control how profit is distributed to your team, and plan for succession and retirement. When you sell a successful business, you can pocket 100% of your profit.
Pick your dream team. The veterinary community is a small group of wonderful people. Unfortunately, in many group practices, you cannot work with family or friends. As an owner-doctor, you will be able to hand select talent and work alongside loved ones.
Benefits of a big company. Independence doesn’t mean being alone. You might be a small operation, but as a part of PetSmart Veterinary Services, you gain access to the shared knowledge of a large peer group, with plenty of people to turn to for help. Plus, you have significantly increased buying power.
If you’re looking for a catch, buy your dog a frisbee. We know the freedom of independence and rewards of ownership help motivate veterinarians to do great work. Great work inspires happy customers. Happy customers bring return business to you and to your PetSmart store host.
We can’t wait to help you realize your dream of ownership or working for an experienced mentor, growing your knowledgebase of medicine and business development. We would love to hear from you.
