Our Story

Who We Are

Elite Vet Products was created to provide veterinarians all over the nation with access to specialty products that have the highest quality standards that they can use in their practice. We are a small distribution company is located in Apex, North Carolina, and ran by husband and wife team - John and Nancy Donovin.

Our Beginnings

Elite Vet Products was created in 2014 as a result of John moving from running the Veterinarian Division for the Equine and Canine Game Ready Systems to being an independent distributor for Game Ready Systems company.

A 25 year veteran in the animal health market, John created Elite Vet Products with a single goal in mind - to focus on the rapidly growing surgical and rehab markets and find the highest quality products available in the industry.

Shortly after Elite Vet Products was started, John was approached by a friend, Dr. Paul Shealy, an Orthopedic canine surgeon. Dr. Shealy had developed a line of gowns, scrubs, wraps, drapes, and towels he had developed called ORGreens. These Surgical products were designed for the OR and are environmentally friendly. ORGreens are 100% reusable up to 75 or over 100 autoclaves depending on the product. 

After seeing the product, John knew that distributing ORGreens to the rest of the veterinary community was going to be revolutionary...and he was right. He noted, "The quality, reusability, and longevity was something that our industry needed. Our customers were so happy with the product that we decided right away to offer a 100% money back guarantee - that’s how much we stand behind this product!” 

In 2016 Elite Vet Products added the GerVetUsa line of instruments that are made with 100% German Steel. Quality is John's primary focus and this was another product he was proud for his business to represent. 

John and Nancy have college age twin boys and a neurotic Boston Terrier name Cooper. They happily reside in Apex, North Carolina where they continue to run their business and provide innovative products to the vet community.
