Paws To Rest is a love story…

…created by Dr. Wendy McClelland, a born and raised Alberta veterinarian.  Growing up on a farm in southern Alberta, Dr. Wendy has loved animals her entire life, and went into veterinary care because of this love.

She also happens to have a young family, and wasn’t willing to make the sacrifice of spending long hours in veterinary clinics on shift, and found it difficult to provide the level of quality care that she wanted to deliver to her patients.  As a working mom, she wanted to create a lifestyle company that would allow her to not only provide care to animals, but to put her family first and never have to choose between the two.  It came down to “quality of life”.

She thought that if vet care could be provided in the animal’s own environment, that it could be a completely different experience for everyone involved.  In particular, the ability for a family to say goodbye to a beloved pet in their home, as opposed to a veterinary clinic, would be something that created a positive and private experience for clients to remember.   This could create a better quality of life for the animals, the owners, and even the vets involved.

Turns out, she was right.

Since our humble beginnings, Vets To Go has grown exponentially and we continue to expand, with our Paws To Rest service being one of the fastest growing parts of our practice.  We now have a full team of compassionate and professional veterinarians in Calgary, Edmonton and surrounding areas.  Our vision is to become the trusted authority when it comes to providing trustworthy, compassionate and effective veterinary care and compassionate euthanasia services in the comfort of your home.
