Helping You Decide What's Best For Your Practice.

Your veterinary practice is unique, just like your patients. Our aim is to understand your needs and goals as you consider transitioning out of ownership.

We look at your whole practice with you, because we know that the acquisition of you hospital is so much more than just a financial transaction. In addition to helping you secure the maximum price for your practice, we also help you decide what’s best for your patients, team, community, and family.

We unlock the maximum value for your practice(15-20% more than you would likely get on your own). In 2021, our principal helped 15+ veterinary practice owners transition out of ownership, representing over $200,000,000 in aggregate transaction value.

June 2022- Market Update

Valuations for veterinary practices remain quite strong. While they have receded from the high water marks set in the middle of 2021, valuations are still greater than they have ever been prior to 2021(~2-4 times their historic EBITDA multiples). If a potential transaction is on your horizon in the next 1-2 years, it would be prudent to explore any transaction opportunities that exist today.

Client Testimonial

Selling your practice is a journey that takes on a life of its own and it’s critical to have help to ensure the continuation of your practice’s legacy through the transition.  Every practice is unique and thus every successful transition will require a tailored solution.  Jonathan provides this individualized expert advice, guidance, strategy, and support from start to finish.  With Jonathan’s help, not only did my practice sale go through, I was able to get everything I needed and more to ensure the partnership with the corporate buyer would be successful for my practice, my team, my clients and patients, and my family going forward.  I could not recommend him more highly!
