People

At Mars Veterinary Health, we provide care unlike any other, not only for pets but for people too. From our valued veterinary teams that come to work every day to the pet owners who place their trust in us, people are at the heart of all that we do.

Mars Veterinary Health Sustainable Culture of Wellbeing

We're all about the
bigger picture

The connection between pets and humans is undeniable. Supporting, strengthening and maintaining these amazing relationships through quality care is why we get up in the morning. To ensure our veterinary teams can continue to provide unrivaled care and thrive in a fulfilling work environment, we must provide unrivaled care and support for them in return.

We especially understand the personal toll and stressors that a career in the veterinary profession can bring. That is why we are committed to creating a sustainable culture of wellbeing where the needs of every Associate are prioritized right alongside the needs of every pet owner and pet.

By 2022 we aim to ensure that mental health education and support is accessible by 100% of Mars Veterinary Health veterinary professionals. And through our dedicated resources like ASK (Ask, Support, Know), a program designed specifically for veterinary professionals to recognize and address emotional distress in themselves and others, and MVH4you, our dedicated wellbeing portal, we are helping to combat these issues head-on.

Giving back is in our nature

We are committed to giving back to our Associates and the communities we serve. From our BETTER TOGETHER FUND that provides financial assistance to veterinary professionals in times of crisis to our charitable arms that provide assistance to pets and people in need, giving back is in our nature.

In 2020, in support of A BETTER WORLD FOR PETS and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mars Veterinary Health businesses – AniCura, Antech, Banfield Pet Hospital, BluePearl, Linnaeus and VCA Animal Hospitals – and affiliated public charities – Banfield Foundation, Frankie’s Friends and VCA Charities – helped enable access to veterinary care for more than 525,000 pets in 11 countries.

We are also committed to providing financial support and discounts to hundreds of shelters, animal welfare groups and other nonprofit partners, helping to make critical care more accessible to pet owners and to help sustain shelter-driven community programs.

Our commitment
to pet owners

It’s a very special honor when a pet owner puts their trust in us and one we never take for granted. Whether it is through preventive medicine and routine care or emergency situations and more complex conditions, we aim to provide pet owners with peace of mind, comfort and positive experiences throughout a pet’s lifetime – personalizing the care at every point.

We’re also investing in new technologies that bring pet owners and veterinarians closer together. Our telehealth platform, for example, provides pet owners with “digital first” care that allows them to access professional advice from veterinary teams without leaving home.
