More for Your Team

We know that your vet techs, receptionists, and other staff are more than just employees—they’re your family. When you partner with Heart + Paw, your family becomes our family.

We work with you to provide benefits, professional development opportunities, and other resources so that you and your staff can have happy, healthy work/life balance.

The Heart + Paw Partnership Process

Our process ensures that we’re both making the right decision when you choose to join the Heart + Paw family.

Step 1: Let’s Talk

We’ll sit down with you to discuss your practice, your goals and our business values and practice support strategy to determine if we are a good match for a partnership.

Step 2: Let’s Make a Plan

We’ll gather some key historical financial information and practice management data. Determine valuation and work with you on developing an ideal deal structure, terms and a plan that is perfect for us both and your team. We will work together from a non-binding letter of intent through to the staff announcement and closing.

Step 3: Let’s Be Partners

You’ll become part of the Heart + Paw family as an official Partner. You’ll have the freedom to care for your furry patients without the burden of day-to-day business management.
