What came first: Happy Vets or Happy Pets? At WellHaven, there is no wrong answer – we strive to make sure all of our clinics are filled with both.
Updated Clinics, Focused Vets
From our bright, clean, friendly lobbies to the newest technology, we’ve created practices centered around veterinarians so they can focus their attention on your furry family member. WellHaven introduces progressive business plans and supports the day-to-day business management duties so veterinarians and vet nurse technicians can focus on what they love, pet care.
This leaves them free to concentrate on the task at hand: keeping pets happy, fit, and funny as ever. When our doctors are happy, your pets are happy.
We believe in the wellbeing of people and pets, and that starts with making sure vets have a good work/life balance so they can focus on their patients. With opportunities… for advanced training, outstanding benefits, flexible schedules (4-day work weeks), campus support (SPECIES and EAP), and a bottom-up consultative approach. We give our vets full autonomy and allow them to provide the local leadership of the clinic.
With superior facilities, equipment, technological support, and AAHA credentials, pets will receive the best care. Our doctors take the lead on all local clinic decisions and… professional development is encouraged. We’ve embraced Fear Free to put pets at ease and offer Wellness Plans to make things as easy as possible for their parents.
We take care of all business aspects of your practice so you can focus on the patients. By handling finance (payroll, accounts payable and receivable), purchasing, HR,… marketing, and IT tasks, our vets are able to focus on pet care. We encourage professional growth, continuing education, certifications, and personal growth in the community.
You’ve spent your career building a practice and you don’t want to see it fall into “corporate” hands. We value your dedication to families, their pets, and the community and want… to preserve your legacy. This includes partnering with rescue shelters and nonprofits such as Pet Peace of Mind, working with neighborhood events, and collaborating with professional communities such as AAHA, AVMA, NAVTA, and more.
Do you like people almost as much as you like their pets? Are you in the veterinary field but looking for a more holistic approach to animal care? Are you a veterinarian without a practice? You could be exactly what we’re looking for at WellHaven. With more than 40 locations across five states, we’d love for you to join our family! We are actively hiring in most areas for Veterinarians and Veterinary Nurse Technicians.
Selling A Veterinary Practice? Are You Ready for a Change?
WellHaven Pet Health helps veterinarians and their teams succeed both personally and professionally. We value our owner veterinarians and encourage them to stay. Our focus on personal growth, practice support, and life balance provide the framing of the relationship we want to have with our doctor leaders. For those who wish to exit practice management, we support them with a smooth transition plan focused on both the owner and the hospital team.
I absolutely love being at Wellhaven. I’ve worked in every part of the industry. WellHaven has definitely become a second home for me. Definitely love the environment. It’s a very relaxed environment. We have fun here. We laugh, we help each other all the time. And it’s really great. I love it so much.
Sarah / Certified Veterinary Technician
My favorite thing about working at WellHaven is helping out with people’s pets, having a smile on the owner’s face after we help them. Always love hearing them being thankful with us, and being thankful they came in. It’s the best thing about being a tech
Yareli / Veterinary Technician
At WellHaven we have a good solid team and communication is key. We’ve worked so well together. Making sure things get done at an appropriate time, helping the doctors, just helping everyone. Even though we may not be assigned to that role for that day, we still help out and it makes the day go by sooner.
You became a veterinarian to help families take the best possible care of their pets, not to balance the books, chase down payments, or do any number of other administrative chores. We understand these stresses – and we’re here to help.
When selling your practice to WellHaven, you will be free to focus on what you love: taking care of our four-legged family members. We help you to set the perfect balance for both your professional and personal lives. Why stay after hours if you don’t have to?
We won’t forget about your Vet Nurse Technicians and other employees. With such busy schedules, it can be hard to continue their education. WellHaven works to provide opportunities for learning that will help their careers in the short and long terms.
Pets give so much to the family while asking very little in return. The occasional belly rub, table scrap, or walk in the park. But when they no longer seem interested in any of those things, something is wrong.
Whether they got into something they shouldn’t have, have issues with oral health, or simply just getting older, let our veterinarians take a look. We offer full “nose to tail” care for your four-legged family member.
Providing face-to-face consults from the comfort of your home will allow our vets to more efficiently work with our patients. These visits will also remove the stress pets can often feel when in a new environment, no matter how safe and comfortable our clinics can be.
Whether it’s kitty’s first shots or dental work for your old trusty companion, WellHaven Wellness Plans provide care for your pet throughout their lifetime. As your pet ages, their needs change - and our plans will change right along with them.
Is your tabby getting tubby? Is Fido getting flabby? Studies show that more than half of adult dogs and cats are obese. Let us outline a diet plan to get your pet back to a healthy weight. And, yes, we’ll make room for the occasional treat.
It can be stressful to see your pet in distress even though there is no visible trauma. Every WellHaven clinic is outfitted with an in-house diagnostic lab and radiology (x-ray) department so we can see, analyze, and make recommendations for treatment when your pet just isn’t feeling right.

As Seen on KATU!
Bob Lester, DVM, Chief Medical Officer for WellHaven Pet Health and his team of Veterinarians, joins AM Northwest to talk about keeping both pets and people healthy during Covid-19. In addition to talking about steps taken to keep everyone safe, he also discusses how our Wellness Programs can help during uncertain economic times.
Number one, I love pets. I love helping them – That’s why we’re here at WellHaven. And I love client education. Taking somebody from their first new pet and seeing it to the geriatric age and seeing that progression of them learning through the years of what to expect. And then seeing them with a new pet. They’re not new pet owners anymore. It’s great.
Brian / Certified Veterinary Technician
My favorite thing about being a Veterinary Technician at WellHaven is the camaraderie of our team above all. We gel together. It’s not necessarily just tasks, it’s more of a fluid, everybody helps everybody kind of thing. If you’re free you’re helping out.
Tanner / Certified Veterinary Technician
At WellHaven, we all come from different backgrounds and we have different life experiences, and yet we’re able to come together and deliver excellent patient care, work together, and be a wholehearted team. It’s really hard to find that. And I feel like we’ve got that here at our house and it all boils down to taking care of the patient.
