Success Stories

Hear from our partner veterinarians and how being a part of PPV has had a positive impact on their practice.

  • Dr. Jennifer Koenig
    Snohomish, WA
    I have been a part of People, Pets & Vets, and Snohomish Station Animal Hospital for 4 years. As a part of PPV I have the ability to focus on veterinary medicine and customer service while relying on the service center to care for all the business-related functions. The entire service center team is always responsive and helpful when my team has needs. I am part of a greater team with PPV and always feel welcome to bring new ideas and concepts to the organization; everyone is always open and willing to help problem solve and find resolution to problems on every level. PPV is a "comfortable" organization to work with, with no rigid standards or expectations to restrain you. I have the freedom to operate my team and develop my employee and client culture based upon my individual clinic's needs. Having worked in both private and corporate practices in the past, I can say without a doubt that working with PPV has been an amazing experience and the best career move I have ever made! I intend to be a part of PPV for as long as possible as I cannot imagine a more supportive, empowering organization to work with. I absolutely trust in the honesty and integrity of the PPV leadership team, knowing they have everyone's best interest in mind.
  • Dr. Thomas Mackowiak
    Portland, OR
    I was at the point in my career that I was ready to sell my practice. There were a few companies I was considering, but People, Pets & Vets stood out because of their quick and personalized response. My inquiry was not answered with a form to click and submit, but rather a personal conversation and quickly thereafter an in-person meeting. The personal approach was unexpected and gave me peace of mind. PPV was genuinely interested in my feedback and concerns about maintaining my hospital culture and avoiding abrupt changes for my current team. The entire selling process and transition has been smooth. Now I can focus on my patients and staff, while they help my business grow and handle everything else behind the scenes.
  • Dr. Michelle Shoemaker
    Olympia, WA
    I am so happy that our clinic joined People, Pets & Vets. We have been thrilled with the additional support gained in IT, marketing, human resources, financial management, and overall operations. I can now focus on the things that I love doing and put quality time into my wonderful patients and clients on a day to day basis. I still have the opportunity to manage the clinic, making critical day to day decisions. Even with advancements in support, our clinic culture has remained untouched. Our transition to PPV was seamless with no changes seen by our clients. Our staff is seeing improvements in their overall benefits packages and our supply costs are improving as PPV continues to grow. PPV is a unique group that is passionate about doing what is right, serving others, and helping each clinic reach its highest potential. It is comforting to have a large network of veterinarians within our group that I can consult with on cases and refer cases to. I am excited about the future of PPV and what we can do together as a team!
