The year was 1960. "The Andy Griffith Show" premiered on television, "Mack the Knife" won record of the year and Bono was born. Also in 1960, Dr. Robert "Doc" Flickinger was practicing veterinary medicine in West Fargo, North Dakota. It was at this point in his career that Doc began to recognize the potential in the animal health industry and the opportunities that could lie ahead. It's from these very thoughts that Midwest Veterinary Supply has matured to celebrate our 50th anniversary.
Fifty years later, Midwest Veterinary Supply has grown to become a full-line wholesale distributor of veterinary supplies sold exclusively to over 12,000 veterinary clinics in over 30 states. Midwest is proud to represent the industry’s leading manufacturers of biologicals, pharmaceuticals, equipment, supplies and instrumentation. Products are shipped from six strategically located branches allowing us to provide next day service to our customers.
As we have grown, Midwest has maintained the values and personal touch that Dr. Flickinger used when he created the business in 1961. In fact, it’s this very principle that has set Midwest Veterinary Supply apart in the minds of the customers we are so privileged to serve.
The Midwest Veterinary Supply sales force is the cornerstone of our business. They are responsible for providing the service and support to our customers that sets Midwest apart from other suppliers. Our field representatives average over 15 years of industry experience. Our inside sales representatives average over 9 years of industry experience and many are Certified Veterinary Technicians. This level of experience provides for a deep understanding of the veterinary profession as well as a resource for information and ideas to help veterinary clinics prosper. You can count on Midwest Veterinary Supply to provide an unmatched level of service.
Midwest Veterinary Supply understands and appreciates the value and need for providing financial support to the veterinary profession. We exhibit at state, regional and national conferences and actively support local and regional educational seminars. Our long standing support of veterinary schools and teaching hospitals contributes to the long-term development of the industry and the next generation of veterinarians and technicians.
