Veterinarians Practice at:
AutoZone parking lots
Waffle house parking lots
Commoditized spay-neuter surgery mills
Card table shot “Clinics”
Real estate agent’s offices
Walmart EZ clinics
All of the above erodes trust in the veterinary ‘profession’, and it ^should^. So many veterinarians are compromising their integrity as the profession is dismantled and commoditized by corporations and franchises…
And then there’s:
Veterinarians at Universities
Private Veterinary Hospitals
Private Specialty Practices
Local Emergency Hospitals
I still practice at a private veterinary hospital where we remove tumors, treat cancer, diagnose and cure diseases, give fluids and test blood, and save and restore lives.
Who do you trust?
As a private practitioner with skills to hone and a reputation to build and preserve, I always do what’s best for the patient. Not the shareholders, or a boss. As an independent owner, to remain viable I can simply raise a fee, not push extra inventory and upsell procedures.
I am a private-practice veterinarian living and breathing advanced medicine and surgery. It isn’t only about vaccinations and spays. For me.
I am always dedicating myself, my staff and my resources to the clients who can recognize and benefit from the difference.
