Don’t Just Survive in the Veterinary Industry—Thrive!

Veterinarians know how to take care of animals extraordinarily well. Unfortunately, business skills, vital for running a sustainably profitable practice, are often lacking due to gaps in education. “The Profitable Vet” was written by six skilled veterinary and financial professionals, including our very own David McCormick, MS, CVA, Sherry Everhart, CVT, CMA, and Dick Goebel, DVM.
