Are we compatible?
Do we have an uncommon amount in common?

You’ve created a business with your own culture, personality, and style. We’ve done the same. Both have proven to be successful. Both are valid. Neither should cancel out the other. Neither should dominate. Instead, let’s find out if the two can be happily and ever-so-naturally merged! We’ll start by saying that we firmly believe that behaviors are values in action. As our AmeriVet team moves from concept to execution, each of us understands that we are working toward our mission every single hour of every single day.

Okay. That’s the theory. Now let’s talk reality. There are six ‘behaviors’ that are all about practicing what we preach:




Status quo is a status “no.” While effort is appreciated, we reward and celebrate results. We applaud those who set big, bold goals and achieve them




It’s simple. Be the person you would want to work with and respect others. Trust that your teammates are working toward the same goal, even if their approach is different than yours.



Find solutions and don’t point fingers. Learn from the past, but don’t dwell on it. Find a path forward and always stay above the line.


(be accountable)


Be accountable for your actions. Put your brainpower to work and look for the “how” instead of the “can’t.” Show initiative and be resourceful.


(keep moving forward)


Forward motion creates change. Look to the future and know that it’s okay to move quickly. Be willing to do what it takes to get the job done… plus a little bit more


(think ‘we,’ not ‘them’)


Think “we,” not us and them. When we share the same goals, our partners win and we win – and a shared success feels better.

To get into the nitty-gritty of each of these, just click on the icons. Then ask yourself: Are we more alike than different? Only you can answer that question. And we look forward to the possibility of finding out!

We make it a point to give our team opportunities to join industry associations, attend continuing education courses and conferences, and keep up-to-date with the latest developments in veterinary medicine. You’ll be learning and loving it!

If you’re a new vet, is DEVELOPMENT on your high-priority list?
