Sell Your Practice With Confidence

It Takes a Thoughtful Exit Strategy and a Partner that Understands Your Future Goals

We are the partner of choice for veterinarians and practice owners who wish to transition their businesses. AVG was founded by veterinarians, and we understand the issues facing veterinary business owners because we’re veterinarians too! Our goal is to be a flexible partner for veterinary business owners at all stages, from younger veterinarians wanting to invest in a practice, to more experienced veterinarians preparing for retirement. We foster a culture that is welcoming to all identities, and we’re proud of the flexibility we can offer our employees.

Why American Veterinary Group?

Quick and Easy Closing

Our process is designed to conclude within 60 days start to finish, ensuring a minimal disruption to your practice. In addition, there are no financing contingencies with AVG, providing a clear path to the closing of the transaction.


In your role– we can create a role that matches your desired participation – full-time, part-time, or retirement after a transition period are all situations we’ve designed in our hospitals.

In the deal structure– whether you’re interested in a complete sale of the practice, keeping a minority interest, or investing in the growth of American Veterinary Group at the parent company level for a secondary investment return, we’re open to discussing various structures that mutually align us.

In the size of the hospital– unlike other operators, we believe that there are opportunities in partnering with hospitals of varying sizes and models. Whether you own a single DVM practice with revenues of $750K annually or a large multi-doctor practice with several million dollars in revenue, we’re confident that our team can help bring the practice to the next level.


Our executive team brings over 100 years of collective experience within all aspects of the veterinary industry – clinical, marketing, hospital operations, training, and administrative functions. This experience not only eliminates the stress of the daily management of the practice, but as importantly, allows you to focus on practicing medicine and your customers.

Additional Investment

We’re eager to make additional investments in the practice following the transition – Does your hospital need a much needed makeover? Is your equipment less than “state of the art”? Have you made any concerted investment in marketing efforts or community awareness to drive new customers? What about training tools for your team? Each of these are real life examples of investments that we’ve made in our hospitals in the first year following the transition.



“I truly enjoyed working with AVG on the sale of my practice. While selling a practice can be a stressful experience with a lot of emotion, AVG was there to calm my fears. The process went as well as I could have possible hoped and I am now pleased to be part of the AVG family. With the ability to now focus solely on my patients without the responsibilities of management, I’ve realized that being a veterinarian is fun again. Selling to AVG was one of the best business decisions I have ever made as their management team has seamlessly assumed responsibility for the day to day running of the practice. The sale of my practice to AVG has allowed me to have a better quality of life and I recommend it to everyone.” – Dr. Jose Barbosa

“The American Veterinary Group allowed me to transition toward my ultimate goal of retirement. Throughout the entire process, they cared not only about me as the seller, but also about our employees. All conversations were kept confidential and there was no disruption to the practice during the negotiations. AVG has built upon the practice that I started nearly 40 years ago, with upgraded equipment, staff training, and increased marketing. Thank you AVG for taking my practice to the next level.” – Dr. Dennis Passman

“My experience with AVG was a very positive one. I found them to be quick and efficient during the sale of my practice. They handled the process smoothly with no surprises. Dr. Mickey Axelband and his team were a pleasure to work with during the sale of my vet practice. He and his staff kept me updated throughout the process and was always there to answer my questions and resolve any issues that came up. I would certainly recommend them if you are thinking of selling your practice.” – Dr. Bert Gill
