AUSTIN, TX – THRIVE Affordable Vet Care ( today announced their first payment towards veterinarian student debt as part of their industry leading plan called the THRIVE Freedom Plan (#THRIVEFreedomPlan).

In an effort to address the growing debt crisis, THRIVE created the industry leading plan to assist professional staff with the high debt burden that is common in the profession.  “We realize the stress associated with what can seem to be an insurmountable debt load, and its impact on veterinarian well-being” said Odis Pirtle, CEO.  “And we want to do our part in addressing this growing concern.”

“As a veterinarian with student debt, I can identify with the pressure of managing both student debt, and supporting a family”, said Dr. Christina Moore, DVM, MBA and Head of THRIVE Veterinary Recruiting.  “I’m proud to be a part of an organization who is addressing this growing concern along with other challenges to our profession.”

In its first year, the THRIVE Freedom Plan delivered an average debt repayment benefit of $4,000 per professional.  “Our mission is to address this issue head on, and we’re excited to extend this benefit to more Veterinarians as we grow our professional team across the US,” said Pirtle.

“With our explosive growth, our biggest challenge is recruiting a best in class professional team for our industry disrupting model,” said Dr. Moore. “We are committed to building, supporting, and retaining a stellar team to achieve our goals of providing quality vet care at an affordable price.”
