Veterinary Emergency Group (VEG) is a rapidly growing emergency company with hospital locations across the United States. Our mission is helping people and their pets when they need it most. We are revolutionizing emergency medicine with a "customer first" mentality and a true, employee-centric work environment.


Your mission as a VEG market owner is: running VEGs in your market the VEG way. Said differently, you are the owner of everything that happens in your VEG hospitals and within your market. A market will consist of at least two hospitals in one geographical area.

At your hospitals the buck stops with you. Hospital leaders report to you, including Medical Directors and Hospital Managers. While hospital leaders manage their functions within their individual hospitals, you are responsible and accountable for the growth and success of all hospitals in your market and all VEGgies in your hospitals.

As a market owner, you're also responsible for ensuring that your customers are central to everything your hospitals do, and that they're treated the VEG way. You're passionate about building and protecting VEG's brand in your market and ensuring that rDVMs are confident when sending their customers to your hospitals when they need us most.
