Veterinary start-ups

The goal of those who go to veterinary school is to open a practice, which brings together multiple industries. To start a practice, you will need a team of expert accountants, consultants, and attorneys that will make the opening of a practice a smooth process.

There are many factors to consider when debating whether or not to open a practice. Some considerations should include:

  • Existing non-compete restrictions from current employer.
  • A go-to marketing strategy.
  • Financing possibilities.
  • A good location for the practice on reasonable terms.

If you are a veterinarian planing to open a practice, we encourage you to call and discuss these and other things necessary to the successful start of your practice. This process, though sometimes difficult, will be a rewarding and memorable experience. We will guide you through the basic steps that you will take, such as:

  • Forming a new entity and selecting a name
  • Identifying business partners, if any.
  • Identifying qualified and experienced accountants, real estate brokers, and other professionals
  • Identifying a location for your practice, and negotiating the lease
  • Lining up financing options
  • Lining up vendors
  • Overseeing the design and construction of your new office
  • Arranging credentials with 3rd party payment systems, like PPOs, etc.
While the task may seem daunting, there are intangible benefits to opening and operating your own practice. Our goal is to make the process as painless as possible. We welcome any calls to review whether opening a practice is right for you.
