While MVP was founded in 2017, the company’s roots were planted in 1998 by two entrepreneurial veterinarians, Dr. Vic Dhillon and Dr. Jeff Rothstein. Dr. Dhillon and Dr. Rothstein first met while they were working together at a clinic in Roseville, Michigan, but parted ways to pursue similar dreams in different states. Dr. Rothstein stayed in Roseville while Dr. Dhillon moved to the Milwaukee area, but the two remained friends as they collectively opened and acquired over 20 animal hospitals between their respective hospital groups, Advanced Animal Hospital Group and Progressive Pet Animal Hospitals. In 2017, they recognized an opportunity that would allow their groups to join forces with a strategic partner, Shore Capital, and merged together forming MVP
