A True Partner For Your Practice

We know it has become harder for veterinarians to thrive in general practice. The increasing challenges of an evolving client demographic and mindset, the rapid pace of technological advancement, and the changing landscape of veterinary consolidation make it hard to keep pace and remain competitive.

Partnering with best-in-class independent practices, Heart + Paw is committed to building something new, distinct and lasting. We believe that together we will provide the highest quality care to the discerning pet parent, while also protecting the financial interests, work/life balance, and well-being of the veterinary professional. Heart + Paw is seeking practices who want to be a part of leading the future of the profession.

We are builders, not collectors

We will not be a collection of individual assets. Rather, we will build the future of petcare by both opening de novo locations and partnering with forward thinking independent owners, and together, reimagine petcare for today's pet parent.

Ready to retire, burnt out, or looking for a change?

If you’re considering selling your veterinary practice or retiring, you may be asking yourself when is the right time to start planning? Experts in the field will typically recommend starting your research and planning as soon as possible. If you can start the process a few years in advance, you will have the opportunity to position your practice for what is the most desirable to buyers allowing you to get the most for all your years of hard work.

It could be that you’re waiting to retire before selling your practice; however, many people find that other factors such as burnout, a desire for a career change, or illness can also play a role in your decision-making process.

There are many transaction structures out there; however, if you want to sell your practice, but still benefit from the tremendous growth ahead for your practice, ask about earnout bonus structures. These opportunities can be incredibly financially rewarding and liberating, as many of the tedious back-office operations are already in place and streamlined from your partner. Imagine being able to take things like accounting, marketing, client-retention, payroll, and human resources off your plate and just focus on practicing medicine?
