Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have a viable exit strategy?
Unless you have a predetermined succession plan in place, you will have to find a qualified buyer for your practice when you wish to sell. This usually involves a lengthy process of advertising, showing the practice, negotiating with the buyer and hoping they qualify for a loan. This process can take a year or more. AVG, however, can close within 60 days.

What if I want to continue working after the sale?
You can continue to work at the practice full time or part time after the sale, or you can leave after a reasonable transition period.

Will my staff stay the same?
You worked hard to hire and train a staff of knowledgeable people you trust. Many large veterinary corporations hire all new staff when they take over a practice, but when you transition with AVG, we’ll keep your staff intact.

Can I get a fair price for my many years of hard work?
Absolutely. AVG will provide you with a no-cost, no obligation valuation of your practice.

What does partnering mean and how does it benefit me?
AVG will eliminate the stress of the daily management of the hospital. Our experienced team will provide resources and training tools for marketing, human resources, and payroll and accounting – leaving more time for you to practice medicine that you love.

What are my options for partnering?
AVG is flexible, and you can partner with us at any point in your career. We have partnership options whether you are:

  • A young or mid-career veterinarian wanting the burden of the business elements off your plate so you may enjoy being a veterinarian and have a partner to invest in the growth of the practice
  • Retiring and looking to transition out of your practice
