Meet the Very Important Pets (VIPs)
of the ElleVet Team

VIP Blog Happy Dog

Every February, we celebrate Responsible Pet Owners Month. Actually, we celebrate responsible pet owners every day here at ElleVet. We know first-hand that while furry friends bring tons of love and happiness to our lives, they also bring a lot of responsibility. 

ElleVet Logo

No matter their size or species, pets require so much more than love and affection. It’s our job as pet parents to ensure our best friends’ needs are met—physical exercise, mental stimulation, high-quality diet, shelter and security, and caring for their health. It’s a round-the-clock job! 

At ElleVet, we have so many furry members of our team—and some even join us at the office every day! Cheers to our own Very Important Pets and their responsible humans!
