Veterans Sign on to Deal to Open PetWellClinics in Louisiana

PetWellClinic, an emerging pet-wellness franchise, has entered into an 8-unit agreement in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The clinics will provide convenient preventative care for pets including general check-ups, vaccinations and treatment of minor ailments and chronic conditions in a walk-in environment.

The multi-unit agreement has been signed by Ed & Betsy Erb, veterans of the US Army and US Air Force respectively. After 10 years in the military and another decade working in corporate positions, the Erbs signed the agreement with PetWellClinic to begin a new chapter in their professional lives. Betsy is currently working part-time as a veterinary assistant while in the process of applying to veterinary school. With a passion for public service, they felt compelled to bring PetWellClinic’s vital pet care model to a community in need of an affordable, convenient option.

“We came to Baton Rouge on a temporary assignment, but we fell in love with the area and decided to settle down here,” said Ed. “Over the last few years, we had been searching for a new business opportunity. Eventually, we decided to invest in something that would combine our love for our community with our love for pets. With PetWellClinic, we knew we could really make a difference by providing pet owners with quality, essential services.”

Specific locations have not yet been selected for the initial Baton Rouge clinics, but the Erbs are beginning their search in the area with plans to eventually expand into New Orleans and are preparing for the recruitment of veterinarians and clinic staff at their locations.

The PetWellClinic model is a practical option for veterinarians and veterinary technicians looking for a new career with a sustainable workload. The clinics offer 8-hour workdays and simplified services, meaning no more overnight or double-shifts and no more emergency surgeries.

“At our clinics, we provide quality care to our pet patients, but beyond that, we pride ourselves on the work-life balance we offer to our veterinarians,” said Dr. Sam Meisler, DVM, founder and CEO of PetWellClinic. “With manageable work hours and streamlined services, there aren’t any stressful surprises. Our vets can focus more on their patients with the added benefit of leaving work ‘at work.’ PetWellClinic fosters an environment of care and kindness and that starts with our own staff.”

Each PetWellClinic location also utilizes a proven veterinary software program designed by Meisler to run seamlessly and maximize efficiency. The locations are designed for complete transparency and openness, so clients can see everything that is happening, from the front of the clinic to the back.
