About Us

Sarabeth Miller - Owner Veterinary Survival Box

One day in 2019, I was searching for a new subscription box since I have always been obsessed with them, and started to look for veterinary nursing-specific boxes. In my search, I came to the conclusion that there wasn't one. After mentioning my frustrations to my husband, he said why don't you just create your own?

Later that year, I started brainstorming and researching different ideas and products that I could include in my subscription box.

After talking with friends in the veterinary field and asking questions in Facebook groups, I had a basic idea of what I wanted my box to look like and what products to use. The idea had been shelved for a few months due to school work and clinical hours taking up most of my time.

Then 2020 came, and after being forced to take a break from school, I decided I would spend the first few months of the stay-at-home orders working on getting my brand and subscription box out into the world.

About VSB

On July 14, 2020, we officially launched Veterinary Survival Box, a quarterly subscription box for veterinary technicians and nurses. I wanted this box to focus on mental health and self-care, since burnout is so high in the veterinary field, while also including useful items for our shifts.

Later that October we shipped our first box just in time for veterinary technician appreciation week, and have grown to a point of moving from a WeWork office space in New York City ( aka a very tiny office) to a fulfillment center.

Fast forward to 2022, we have attended VMX as well as WVC as a vendor and were able to meet many of the people who have made us what we are today. YOU! We are so thankful for all of our subscribers, who have been with us from the very beginning, and all new subscribers. My goal is to create a product that you are excited about and want to share with everyone.
