Why sell my veterinary practice
to Southern Veterinary Partners?
Are you a veterinarian that is thinking, "I want to sell my veterinary hospital", then we invite you to get to know Southern Veterinary Partners (SVP)! What makes SVP stand apart from other veterinary management companies? We offer a combination that no one else does – we are Southerners who know the South, we are veterinarians who know veterinary medicine and we are a veterinary team that does not act “corporate” very often.
My decision to join Southern Veterinary Partners was rooted in my goal of always practicing quality veterinary medicine. As the sole hospital owner, I was not able to dedicate the time I wanted to my clients, patients and staff. As our industry changes, I saw significant benefits to the business model that SVP provides with their back office support. The collaborative approach between SVP and our team made me feel comfortable that the future of my hospital and my team members would be secure.View More Testimonials

My partner Dr. Flatt and I have been with The Animal Clinic since 1974. For a few years, we have been discussing exit and transition strategies. During which time, we have been bombarded with offers to buy our veterinary practice. When Southern Veterinary Partners approached us, it was the first time we both felt comfortable considering their offer to sell our veterinary practice. We almost immediately said yes. Why did we sell to Southern Veterinary Partners? They offered a fair price and assurance that our staff was a major priority. We have had team members for 37 years and would not make a transition without knowing our employees were handled properly. Furthermore, these guys are veterinarians and know what is going on in the veterinary industry.View More Testimonials

While considering selling my veterinary hospital, I anticipated I would join another organization. But after meeting Southern Veterinary Partners, my mind was made that they were the right fit. With Southern Veterinary Partners, I feel supported and that my animal hospital will be enhanced with their continuing education, benefits and ability to network with peers for best practices. I appreciate their resources but enjoy they are not too big that I am lost in the mix. They give me the autonomy to practice medicine and allow Murrayville Veterinary Clinic to retain its identity. Southern Veterinary Partners understands our individual needs and culture and is a Southern group that speaks our language.View More Testimonials
Dr. Jane White
When I started my ownership of Memphis Animal Clinic 40 years ago, I also started dreaming that the sale of my vet practice would be the ticket for my retirement. Southern Veterinary Partners made that dream come true. Jay Price and his team kept me updated, were thorough in their discussions and easy to work with during the acquisition of my vet practice. Their leadership and staff worked hard to make the transition smooth, uncomplicated, and straight forward for me, my employees and my clients. Thank you Southern Veterinary Partners!View More Testimonials

I am excited to join the Southern Veterinary Partners' family of high-quality veterinary hospitals and proud to be the first hospitals in Virginia to meet their standards for acceptance. Their philosophy of staff as family, clients as friends and patients as loved ones coincides with my beliefs for how veterinary medicine should be approached. This association with Southern Veterinary Partners allows me to spend less time on management and administration and more time doing the veterinary medicine which is so meaningful to me.View More Testimonials
Dr. Thomas Leahy
I was looking to transition out of veterinary practice ownership with minimal to no disruption in my hospital brand or culture. I was also looking specifically for a group with which I could partner financially as they were growing. Southern Veterinary Partners provided both. Very few if any of my clients are even aware that I am no longer the owner over one year out.View More Testimonials

Southern Veterinary Partners has taken care of my staff and doctors as well as I have in the past and were able to exceed the benefits I had previously provided. While alleviating responsibilities and time commitment of veterinary hospital ownership, SVP still is respectful of my input as we move forward together.View More Testimonials

I am very excited about joining Southern Veterinary Partners not only for myself but my staff, clients and patients as well. Our first priority is the care of our patients and this partnership allows me the time and flexibility to focus on them. Dr. Jay Price and the team at Southern Veterinary Partners made the process straightforward and were always quick to answer my concerns. Having access to the management team and resources will elevate the level veterinary care provided at Jones Veterinary Hospital. I recommend any veterinary practice owner who wants to stop worrying about business and get back to doing what they love, join the Southern Veterinary Partners team!View More Testimonials
