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 turnkey solution that lets veterinarians establish their own practice in minimal time for a fraction of the usual cost.

You have the expertise, drive, and skill; we have the location, facilities, and support. Once we hand you the key, the business is yours.

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.

You deserve a treat!

We believe that when you do the work, you should get the reward.
The benefits of ownership with PetSmart Veterinary Services are clear.

Experience true independence

Owning your practice is just the beginning. Build a unique culture, serve your clients your way, and grow equity that will open the door to succession and retirement planning.

Grow without the pain

Thanks to PetSmart’s geographic reach, built-in customer base, and daily foot traffic, you can attract customers more easily or even open a new office with reduced friction. Plus, PetSmart Veterinary Services provides back-office support so you can focus on care.

Care your way

When it comes to providing care, we believe veterinarians know best. As an owner-doctor, you direct and manage care based on your expertise rather than corporate processes and mandates.

Do more for your clients

Your clients will benefit from your personal attention and honest recommendations. You’ll have the opportunity to build genuine, lasting relationships that turn drop-ins into lifelong customers.

Two ways to turn your love of pets into your dream career


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.

Join as an employee

Bring your talent to a dedicated team. Work under an owner-doctor and get the potential to earn a higher productivity percentage compared to working for a hospital conglomerate. 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.
