Our Story

Veterinary Innovative Partners was started by four veterinarians who love veterinary medicine but didn’t love where the industry was heading. Corporate takeovers. Inflexible, standardized care. Overscheduled, understaffed clinics. Non-competes that keep vets locked into soul-sucking work environments. And a lack of compassion and respect for veterinarians and their teams. They saw too many veterinarians suffer from burnout and lose their passion — and they saw too many practice owners watch their life’s work become unrecognizable in the hands of profit-hungry vet consolidators and corporations. They believed they could do it better, so they did. A revolution in veterinary medicine began.

Veterinary Innovative Partners (VIP) champions a network of more than 40 esteemed veterinary clinics and hospitals across 9 states. We provide the highest standard of care to the pets we treat and the amazing people who choose to work with us. Our approach is simple: Treat every team member like the VIP they are and always do the right thing.
