Our Mission: Quality Veterinary Care and Education

IVG creates value by advancing the veterinary profession through our leadership in medicine, education, and our promotion of the human-animal bond. Our mission is founded on the principles of ensuring the highest standards of medical quality are always met, developing new opportunities for education for our staff, clients and pet owners in general, all with empathy for the pet and the owner at the core of our every interaction.

If you'd like your pet to receive high-quality veterinary care at one of our hospitals, please call the location nearest you to schedule an appointment.

Strengthening the Human-Animal Bond through our Core Values

To build upon and further illustrate our mission, IVG has compiled five core values, which our team members follow each day in order to provide high-quality veterinary care and support the human-animal bond. These five core values are as follows:

  • Integrity: By speaking honestly and behaving credibly, we build strong foundations of trust with patients, pet owners and community members.
  • Continuous Learning and Development: We strongly encourage our team members to further their professional and personal development.
  • Collaboration: We work as a team and gain a collective strength shaped by each person's unique perspective and knowledge, which allows us to serve patients with comprehensive, high-quality vet care.
  • Results: We foster a goal-oriented culture, in which we measure performance, acknowledge excellence and reward achievement.
  • Forward Thinking: In order to prepare ourselves for any challenges on the horizon, we capitalize on emerging opportunities and place a focus on tomorrow.

We strive each day to better serve you and your pet – if you'd like to learn more about the IVG network of hospitals, please call us at 781.897.6980 or contact us online today.
