"It is important for us that Petvacx be a place where it is abundantly clear how much we love and value our patients, but also our pet parents and our employees. There is a huge movement towards corporate large-scale veterinary medicine, which in its very nature prioritizes profit and impacts medical decision making. We bought Petvacx to make sure that we would be able to practice independent, patient-centered, evidence-based medicine where we could educate our clients and they could be the primary decision makers. It is NEVER profit first. The other founding principle of Petvacx is that we want to create an employee-centered culture and that our staff will always be paid a living wage and have access to medical care, paid education, and advancement opportunities. Our hiring practices reflect our personal commitment to diversity and the advancement of minorities and women in medical, scientific, and management positions."
