Description: While partnerships are common in veterinary medicine, corporate/doctor joint venture models are not. I talk about the value - making practices competitive in the current environment while allowing for veterinary leadership and wealth creation - and also the limitations of the JV model.

Topic #2: Running a profitable practice

Description: Understanding your P&L and the metrics that drive practice success
