During Global Pet Expo 2015, research firm GfK announced that 35.2% of the US’ 75 million Millennials (people age 18-34) own a pet, compared to 32.8% of Baby Boomers (age 51-70). Millennials like to try the latest technology, will spend more on their pets (including veterinary care and pet services), and are likely to use social media to connect with brands, services, and read online reviews before making their purchase decision (source).
Social media is a powerful tool your clinic can utilize to create, maintain, and grow relationships with clients in your community. It allows you an easy opportunity to organically connect one-on-one with clients to earn their trust, business, and loyalty. However, if you don’t think your clients are on social media, consider this: During the fourth quarter of 2015, Facebook was accessed by close to 1.59 billion users on a monthly basis.
The Standardized Chart of Accounts is the standard for classifying and aggregating revenue, expense, and balance sheet accounts in small animal veterinary practice. This effort was initiated and coordinated by the AVMA Economics Advisory Research Council, and VHA proudly supports their work.

Have you been thinking about selling your practice, but believe the only option is to sell to a corporate group who will ask you to work another 5 years? Do you want to keep the veterinary profession in the hands of veterinarians versus corporate conglomerates? Would you like to see ownership of your practice stay local in the community you love? Do you have an associate veterinarian who wants to buy but cannot make that final leap into ownership?
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then VHA’s new Associate-to-Owner Partnership Program may be right for you!
