Pet Partners is more than proud of the Medical Advisory Board that was formalized this January 1, 2013. Dr. Tom Butera, assisted by Dr. Brian Bretz, has developed a strong group with medical visions and goals that are to the benefit of every person working in the Pet Partners community. The standards of care that every practice has developed must have the consensus of doctors from throughout the demographic variances of our practices. The doctors listed below have been thoughtfully selected. This group will rotate individuals in and out over time so there are new ideas and new energy as time goes on. We are all proud of the quality of not just these doctors but the entire doctor teams throughout our organization.
The pet owner’s ideas of how to address their pet’s problems are changing every day. These problems they face are not all medical but in most cases have ramifications for which we are all well trained. We as a collective family must become more aligned and more cohesive in our approach and in our service to our clients. Our medicine must be well-thought and delivered with passion and quality communications. We must Wow! our clients at every turn. The products we use should be those sold only by veterinarians. We cannot continue to support suppliers with products and drugs sold at Costco, Target and other retail big box stores. This infringement on what we know and how we protect our client’s pets is also an infringement on our business and your income. This advisory team can keep us alerted to those issues and to the changes that are occurring in our profession every day.
If you get a chance, take a moment and send a note or call anyone of the doctors listed below and thank them for their service to our collective needs and goals. As an employee of Pet Partners, you can be proud of the energy and dedication that drives the medicine in your hospital. The pets under the care of the doctors associated with Pet Partners are in better hands than the pet owners can appreciate. That is a good thing!!
