Dr. Jonathan Grindley

Medical Director VEG Ralph Ave

Baruch College; Tufts University- Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine

One reason Dr. Grindley says he loves helping pets: they can't speak for themselves! So, he takes great pride in supporting the human/animal bond. He’s also a fan of how VEG disrupts the industry and challenges the way we approach veterinary medicine, and of course, the great workplace culture. He’s the happy owner of an English Pointer.
