About Banfield Pet Hospital
Partnerships. Teamwork. Collaboration. Back in 1955, a veterinarian by the name of Warren J. Wegert had a vision to make high-quality veterinary 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.
Our commitment to partnership led to our collaboration with PetSmart, the nation's largest retailer of pet‐related products and services. Together, we opened hundreds of in-store pet hospitals to serve pets and pet owners nationwide. Later, Banfield became part of the Mars Incorporated family of companies. With their support and equally strong commitment to providing collaborative care, we work to make sure pets receive the highest level of veterinary 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.
