BluePearl grew from the dreams of numerous veterinarians who believed pets should have access to high quality, cutting edge healthcare. The company’s story begins in July 1996, the day after veterinarian Neil Shaw completed his residency. He and his brother, Darryl, who had recently earned his MBA from Northwestern University, opened a private specialty veterinary practice in Tampa called Florida Veterinary Specialists. As the practice thrived, the Shaws opened additional specialty and emergency hospitals in other locations in the Tampa Bay area and in New York City. They formed an alliance with Dr. Jeff Dennis and Dr. Joe Desch, who were growing the specialty and emergency animal hospital they founded in 1992 into one of the largest in the Midwest. In 2008, the group banded together to create BluePearl Veterinary Partners. Today our company has specialty and emergency hospitals throughout the country and continues to expand. In 2015, BluePearl made the decision to join the Mars family, an iconic, family-owned organization that has demonstrated a significant commitment to helping pets. Mars Petcare is the world’s leading pet nutrition and health care provider, and joining the family gave BluePearl new, unprecedented opportunities for growth and support. BluePearl is committed to providing the communities we serve with comprehensive, compassionate veterinary care. All of our associates are dedicated to accomplishing our mission: Enriching lives through remarkable care for pets.
