“As an Area Medical Director, I’m visiting hospitals and I’m there for my teams, but also working from home. My schedule affords me flexibility in my other role as a new mom. I feel empowered by my leadership team to adjust my schedule as needed, and it’s honestly such a sense of freedom to balance work and life in a way that works best for me.” 
Dr. Elyse Pendergast
Area Medical Director, Vetco Total Care
"Education is the plan at Vetco Total Care! I come from a military background — developing and uplifting your peers was engrained in me. Educating all peers, no matter their role, brings value and ownership to the impact we have as veterinary professionals. We’re making sure LVTs, VAs and Concierges have the knowledge they need to be the best for our clients and themselves! You can grow your heart and mind at VTC! "
Nic Millan Hospital Office Manager, ​​​​​​​Vetco Total Care
“Petco has had such a positive impact on quality of life since day one. I am home for dinner with my kids every night…I am able to support my partner…my schedule has enabled us to have more quality time together and strengthen our bond as a family.”
Dr. Nicci Fisher
DVM, Vetco Total Care
"Practicing autonomous medicine allows me to utilize the most up-to-date treatment options from continuing education courses. We are free to use our expert judgement and experience to practice medicine our way. It provides us with ownership of our medical practice and enables each of us to use the full scope of our expertise, knowledge and skills with the support of field medical leadership." 
Dr. Michael Ogden-Schuette
DVM, Vetco Total Care
“Practicing autonomous medicine is important to me. It allows me to provide the best care possible for my patients. For example, I prefer to carry Purevax for cats. Vetco has been supportive of this from the beginning, as well as carrying alfaxolone which allows me to really tailor my anesthetic plan to each individual patient.”
Dr. Zaya McSky
Hospital Medical Leader, 
Vetco Total Care
We take the stress out of selling your practice, for you and your staff.
Imagine selling your practice while still maintaining autonomy and continuing to practice high-quality medicine with your trusted team. Or knowing your staff will be in excellent hands after you retire, with comprehensive health and financial benefits. Whatever your reason, we're open to practices of all kinds.
