Brian Garish leads Banfield Pet Hospitals. One of the Mars family of businesses (think M&Ms), the pet care industry is booming. More pets today than ever before have led to a major shortage of veterinarians. And the Millennial generation, per Brian, is much more interested in pet preventative health care than previous generations of pet owners which requires more vet visits and better foods. We talk pets, vets, compassion fatigue, and the future of pet care.
