PetWell Partners is Joining the NVA Family!

We are excited to announce that PetWell Partners has signed an agreement to join National Veterinary Associates (NVA). This is an opportunity for our community to gain immediate access to resources, support, and expertise that would have taken us years to build on our own, and which will bolster our mission to deliver the highest-quality care and service to pets and their families.

Founded eight years ago, PetWell has created a veterinary community of locally managed and branded animal hospitals united in the belief that placing pets and families first is key to delivering the best care. Today, we are incredibly proud to have established a PetWell community of 47 animal hospitals, predominantly AAHA accredited, that shares this same goal.

Finding the right partner is everything – and we chose NVA upon finding a like-minded community that prioritizes its people, hospitals, and patients, each and every day. In our conversations with NVA, it became clear that we’ve found a partner with a shared passion for and commitment to delivering the highest-quality care and service to pets and their families.

We have long respected NVA’s rich history of preserving the culture and legacy of local veterinary hospitals while offering incredible back office support. Veterinarian founded, NVA emphasizes the importance of local medical decisions and does not dictate corporate medicine or formulary. Joining NVA ensures our veterinary teams have access to the best resources – including a best-in-class DVM recruiting program – and can focus on what matters most: the health and well-being of animals.

As Brian Kelly, President and COO of NVA relayed, “We are incredibly excited to welcome PetWell Partners to the NVA family. Our communities share closely aligned cultures of teamwork, compassion, and integrity, which have proven essential in delivering best-in-class veterinary medicine for pets and their families. Our dedication to our veterinarians and staff is at the heart of everything we do. Together, our combined community will be united through a love of animals and the people who love them.”

We are also excited to announce the PetWell founders, David Murvin and David Strauss, will be joining NVA’s leadership ranks at the close of the deal. Their deep love and respect for the profession of veterinary medicine will continue into our new chapter with NVA.

As David and David shared, “PetWell is and will remain special due to the dedication and love of the PetWell family. We can’t wait to see what we will do together with NVA. We have a very bright future ahead.”
