"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."
Dr. William Shannon, The Animal Clinic, Hendersonville, TN
"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!"
Dr. Stephen Tower, Memphis Animal Clinic, Memphis, TN
