What a treat.

What a treat.

We're on a mission to give your best friend a better veterinary care experience.

A fresh perspective.

A fresh perspective.

They're always there.

Head on your lap while you sit at the dinner table with friends. Cozied in the crook of your arm while you relax with a book. Pawing at the door, so they can be in the same room. Snoring by your feet at the end of the bed. Anywhere you go, your little friend follows. There's no place they'd rather be than by your side—except when they realize they're going to the vet.

For many dogs, they'll jump right in the car blissfully unaware...until you turn the last corner.

Pants, whimpers, and anxiety ensue. As soon as the carrier comes out for cats, they're suddenly in the most unreachable nook under your bed. Pretty soon, you begin to dread the vet too. As a place made to ensure your pets' happy, healthy life, there sure is a lot of fear when it comes to a vet visit.
