Strategies for Veterinary Practice Owners to Exit and Keep the Practice Veterinarian-Owned

Dr. Link Welborn, DVM, DABVP, CCRT


To optimize eventual practice transition/succession, veterinary practice owners need to be aware of some key considerations and actions in the succession process, the influence of practice value drivers, and the selection of strategies they may consider to exit their practices in addition to consolidation which can lead to greater wealth accumulation for the exiting owner(s) and provide for ongoing veterinarian ownership of the practice.

In other words, yes, you can have your cake and eat it too if the goal is to maximize wealth accumulation for the seller and continue veterinarian ownership for the practice.
