Partnerships. Teamwork. Collaboration. Back in 1955, a veterinarian by the name of Warren J. Wegert had a vision to make human-quality medicine available to pet owners living in Portland, Oregon. Since that time, Banfield Pet Hospital has lived that promise and promoted the philosophy that the best relationships are formed when people work together.
Today, we're more than 800 hospitals strong.
Our commitment to partnerships led PetSmart, the nation's largest retailer of pet-related products and services for pets and their families, to ask Banfield to help bring high-quality veterinary care to their customers by opening pet hospitals in their stores. Early on, Mars Incorporated, a family-owned business, realized Banfield’s potential and made a commitment to support our vision of providing collaborative care and support to our patients and clients.
In 2007, Banfield joined the Mars family of businesses, and together we work to ensure pets receive the highest level of care so they can live longer, healthier lives. Today, Banfield is more than 800 hospitals strong, with the common goal of providing high-quality medicine for each pet we treat and working alongside our clients to ensure they have the resources they need to care for their pets at home.
At Banfield, we celebrate and enrich the family-pet relationship through our knowledge, expertise and products to make a better world for pets and people. We are the leader in innovations like Optimum Wellness Plans, now in place for two decades with more than 1 million pets enrolled, and the first and most extensive quality-assurance program in the industry. And, our hospitals provide the finest, most convenient human-quality medical services available, as well as industry-leading anesthesia protocols and equipment. We understand the special bond between pets and people. The caring and compassionate veterinary teams at Banfield will help ensure your pet stays with your family longer.
