A Vet’s Unique Mobile Business

Before midnight of the 3rd of March 2009 a plan-to-action moment happened that made Dr Wendy McClelland an entrepreneur.  The vet drove around the icy streets of her town, Airdrie, Alta, in her green Saburu Outback posting the homes with milkbone doggie treats and flyers.

She was advertising her new Mobile veterinary business.  She got 2 calls the next day, she was excited.  Validation came of the need for her unique  business when a dozen calls followed in the ensuing days and weeks.

 Today, Vet To Go  employs 31 people and is a compassionate in-home care one-stop business.  Its spot was 72 on the 2017 Profit 500, a ranking by the Fastest -Growing Companies in Canada.

Dr Wendy McClelland is the Chief Medical Officer, and co-owner with Greg Habstritt, a series entrepreneur who started advising the business on service, product, accounting, branding, in fact all aspects of business not familiar to her. They diversified into many areas after surveying their clients’ needs and when a request increases, examples are for pharmacy, food(dietary) delivery, complimentary work, pet accessories, hi-tech clinic with a pharmacy and also a theatre to perform more complicated operations and a Paws to Rest.

Vets To Go has loyal following and clients spend more on pet accessories than on toys for their children.  Clients like the stress free care they and their pets feel because it is given in the comfort of their own home.  Dr Wendy McClelland wants any new service to elevate the quality of life for everyone; the staff,  the client and the pets.
