So, who am I? My name is Jonathan Augusto, DVM. I graduated from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. I spent my first year out of veterinary school working in a mixed large and small animal practice in Seekonk, MA. I did one year of Pathology residency at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. I then went on to work as a relief veterinarian until 2004 when I bought a Banfield Pet Hospital franchise in Millbury, MA. I started that hospital with myself and 3 veterinary technicians working 60 hours per week providing medical care and advice to all comers from the back of that PetSmart store. I dedicated 10 years of my life to building that hospital up to a thriving 4 doctor practice and employer of nearly 20 veterinary technicians. I also aided in the training of numerous Becker College veterinary technician students during their externships at my hospital. And I also hosted numerous veterinary students as they came to my hospital for clinical rotations and summer job programs. After the 10 year franchise agreement expired, the Banfield corporation took over my practice, and I became an employee of the corporation.

One was to the independently run McGee Street Animal Hospital in Norman, Oklahoma. The other was to a Banfield clinic inside a nearby PetSmart. (Note that prices can vary depending on the type of veterinary facility and by region, and the two we found aren't necessarily representative of the entire industry). To celebrate its newest location, PetSmart and Banfield teamed up to offer contests, giveaways, Ask-the-Vet sessions and hospital tours. To give back to the local community, Banfield provided free veterinary services to the Cats in Need group this week. It also donated 20 percent of opening weekend revenue to the organization. Banfield was founded in northeast Portland, Oregon, in 1955 by Warren J. Wegert. The name comes from the nearby . In 1987, Scott Campbell purchased the single veterinary hospital which had about $2 million in annual revenues. Medical Management International, Inc. (MMI) was created to own the clinic, and in 1994 the pet store chain PetSmart teamed up with MMI to open pet clinics in their stores initially called VetSmart. By 1996 the private company had grown to in excess of 150 locations in 18 states with over 600,000 pets treated annually and 1,100 employees. PetSmart received rent and a share of the profits from the clinics, and owned part of MMI as part of the deal between the companies. In 2000, Banfield purchased PetSmart’s other clinics named Petsmart Veterinary Services.
