About Mixlab

Mixlab launched in the fall of 2017 to make the pet pharmacy experience delightful for veterinarians & pet parents. In just over a year, weve established trusted partnerships, & friendships, with veterinarians & pet parents across NY, NJ & CT. We focus on quality & delivering the best customer experience - check out our Instagram & 5 star reviews across Google, Yelp, & Facebook! We are venture backed & have just closed a sizable amount of funding from early backers of companies like Facebook, LinkedIn & Slack. We will be rapidly growing the team so that we can give all pets the personalized care they deserve.
