A Word from Our Chief Medical Officer
We stand together

As an organization, BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital is proud to support equity, inclusion and diversity. We are committed to fostering a more inclusive culture that benefits our communities, our veterinary partners and the clients and pets we serve.
Change starts with understanding who we are today and listening to our Associates, who have shared their experiences, challenges and ideas for how to create a better workplace.
We are implementing strategies to hire more diverse talent and create environments where our Associates can thrive.
Our parent company is also making great strides in this important campaign. Mars earned 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index, which measures corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.
We will continue to be an agent for change, and we stand together in solidarity and support for every veterinary professional.
We are also excited to announce that through a recent acquisition, BluePearl Pet Hospice will provide in-home palliative care and euthanasia for pets.
This new business model will allow us to expand our scope of veterinary services to provide a more complete system of care to you, our referring veterinarians, to our clients and to their pets as end of life nears.
Feel free to reach out to your veterinary relations representative or hospital leadership with any concerns. We’re all here to help.
