On Partnership with WVP

Dr. Doug McInnis

Don’t Sell your Practice…. Partner your Practice
Honestly, I was not looking to sell my practice. I was happy with my practice and how it was going. Over the past couple years, I did have several corporate buyers look at my practice. Some of them made me an offer to purchase. I just did not have a good feeling about any of them and never sold to them. Then Western Veterinary Partners came along and I changed my mind. They didn’t just make me an offer, they catered the offer to my individual goals.

They made me an offer that checked all the boxes that I was looking for when I sold my practice. My staff and associates are important to me and they are taking care of them, better than I could-by staying independent. They are supporting me with the business aspects of the practice and providing resources I didn’t have before. My practice continues to function just as it did with one little change- It’s better. I have now partnered with a company that is truly a family not just a corporation. My family and staff are also happy that I partnered with Western Veterinary Partners. I would highly recommend you look at a partnership with WVP.

After 30 years of practice ownership I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the WVP team made it to transition into a position that I could plan for the future of my practice. They allowed us to maintain the culture that my staff and clients have come to expect, yet they have been there as a partner when needed for administrative, legal and collaborative decisions.

Teaming up with WVP was the easiest and best decision I could have made. When my managing partner needed to retire, I was concerned about finding a good fit within a corporation. This transition has been such a relief. I practice my medicine, my way and get all the administrative support I need. My clients are happy, they see no change at Purrfurably Cats, for them its business as usual! Thank you, WVP!

In anticipation of retirement, I have been looking into selling my veterinary practice for several years. Therefore, I spent the last few years interviewing various groups who were looking to purchase practices. In late 2019 we were fortunate to meet some of the key players with Western Veterinary Partners over dinner.

Besides having a lot of fun bantering and joking back and forth, it quickly appeared that we were a good fit for each other. They were looking for practice owners with whom they could work/partner with and I was looking for a group who would work with me to maintain the integrity of my clients and staff I have developed over many years of building my practice.

A “Good Fit” is exactly how it turned out! By early 2020 the sale transaction happened and the transition to WVP ownership was fairly seamless. The business of caring for pets seemed to

have not changed at all. Of course, COVID hit in March of 2020 and personal as well as professional life changed for everyone. In terms of the veterinary practice, however, WVP was so great at supporting us in everything including supporting current staff, staffing/recruiting, and working with us through some of the COVID-19 restrictions/requirements we added to our policies and procedures.

I have found Western Veterinary Partners to be a group with integrity and transparency which has resulted in a very positive business experience. They have responded quickly to questions both before the sale date and afterwards. They jump in as needed as well as allow the practice to make independent decisions as needed. BEST: they do what they say they will do!

WVP has kept all the promises they made to me during the partnership sale.  They let me practice my veterinary medicine the same way I have for years.  They manage the employees and the day to day management of the office, so I can slow down and continue down the road of a well thought out exit strategy. They communicate with me and listen to any suggestions I might have. 

I would highly recommend WVP to any veterinarian considering an exit strategy or even a partnership to take over the day to day management, so more time could be spent with family.

From the initial onboarding conversation, to the challenge of COVID-19, Western Veterinary Partners has shown up with integrity, empathy, and with the overall best interest of our practice in mind. I am confident in my role knowing that I have the support of my Director of Operations and WVP behind me. I whole-heartedly would recommend partnering with Western Veterinary Partners.
