What is a Partnership?

You focus on the medicine, and we take care of the rest!

Our partnership model connects veterinarians that are interested in selling all or part of their practice with our team of business professionals. We are a national organization of veterinary practices that share a passion for progressive culture, communication, collaboration, and team-work. Our diverse team of veterinary professionals share knowledge and expertise to provide excellence in business management, healthcare team development, and the consistent delivery of excellent medical care. We have a proven record of success in general practice, specialty, and emergency medicine.

A partnership allows you to retain ownership, if you desire, and to secure your financial future, all while you enjoy doing what you love most – practicing excellent medicine for your patients, delivering great customer care to your clients, and enjoying extra free time with your family and friends.

Our Process Our process has been developed to ensure a smooth transaction. We are responsive, patient, and flexible to meet your timing requirements. We understand that the partnership process elicits emotions, anxiety, and perhaps insecurity about the future. Our priority is to develop a feeling of comfort and trust throughout the process.

Step 1: Initial Review

We discretely begin our process with an initial conversation that identifies your priorities. This is followed by a review of your practice financials and goals for the future. Together we identify what is most important to you, and how best to reach your goals given your timing requirements.

Step 2: Letter of Intent (LOI)

After understanding your key objectives, we will submit an offer (LOI) that will include many of the specific deal points that are most important to you, including purchase price, lease terms, employment terms, and options tailored to meet your particular needs.

Step 3: Due Diligence

Once the LOI is accepted, we begin our diligence process with a more extensive review of relevant company materials and a visit to your practice. We will review historical data and develop a 180 day plan post-closing of the transaction. Many details are ironed out during this phase to ensure a smooth transition.

Step 4: Contract Preparation

Our legal team will provide you with transaction documents based on the LOI to discuss with your representatives. Documentation typically includes the purchase agreement, lease agreement, employment agreements, and unique deal specifics.

Step 5: Closing & Transition

Once all the diligence and documentation has been completed, we arrange for closing details, the wire transfer, and then put in motion our 180 day plan. We will transfer bank and vendor accounts and benefits plans, conduct a thorough marketing review, provide on-site and virtual training, and start conducting Pathway Planning workshops. Pathway Planning is a simplified strategic planning process that clarifies the practice goals and empowers your team to reach them.
