Our Team

We’re PetDesk and we work in the best industry in the world. We build technology for the care providers of the best beings in the world – our pets. We help keep pets healthy, happy, and give them more time to play with their owners – us!

We treat our local business customers like family. We stand up for them in the face of corporate giants. We win their loyalty by being amazing service providers – not with contracts. We are independently owned and helping to preserve the high quality of care you get from your neighborhood vet.

Our Statements

Our mission is to improve pet health by helping pet parents stay current and pet care providers stay connected. We support local pet care businesses, conscientious pet parents, and all of those amazing animal companions.

Our vision is to generate 10 million additional years of pet life over the next ten years and have the data to prove it.

Our 8 Values

Deliver Unexpected Joy in Service →
Every PetDesk employee is a customer success advocate first. We go out of our way to exceed expectations whether we are helping customers, team members, or the community at large. 
Practice Radical Candor Openly →
We foster a culture of praise and criticism so employees get real guidance as they build a successful career here. We do this with open communication between everyone – including our customers.
Be a Passionate Owner of the Company →
We give employees as much responsibility as they want and the tools to be successful. They are accountable for the rest. We love getting things done and being around people who do too.
Foster Growth through Coaching →
We believe that everyone should and can continue to grow. Everyone has a coach in the company and practices self-coaching. We even bring these principles to our approach with customers.
Be Curious and Promote Learning →
We are constantly learning. We learn as much as we can about our customers. We learn about our business. We learn about ourselves and each other. We can’t stop ourselves from learning.
Be Transparent in All Things →
There are a lot of snake-oil sales companies in this space and we are not one of them. We do what we promise, are transparent in all things, and respect pet care professionals for what they do best – care.
Make Data-Driven Decisions →
Your gut is valuable but we make decisions based on facts and data. We take the same approach with our customers and give them the data to make critical decisions about their business.
Collaborate with Everyone →
We’re constantly working together within and across departments to best serve our customers and we love it. We team up with our partners and customers to drive change in the industry and in ourselves.
