About Saunders Veterinary Services
The O'Brien Veterinary Group is a family-run, family-owned business committed to multi-generation ownership and a legacy of doing what's right. Founders Greg and Emily O'Brien had an idea that letting veterinarians do what they do best is the best way to run a veterinary practice. Their philosophy: The O’Brien Group manages the back-end details, so the team at each practice can choose what’s best for pets, pet-owners, and the communities the practices are a part of.
As the company has grown, our respect for the veterinary profession has grown as well.
We know of no industry so full of caring, dedicated and talented individuals as this one. We consider it an honor to be a part of it, and to help our practices and the people who work in them do their best work for the pets we all love.
