Success Story: VRCC

“Getting acquired by PetVet Care Centers was a really smart move.”

So says Brian Van Vechten, DVM and Medical Director/Surgery at VRCC Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Hospital in Englewood, Colorado.

When Brian and his surgical practice partner sold to PetVet Care Centers, they found their work days became easier and their lives were transformed for the better.

Dr. Van Vechten on retaining control…and retirement:
“One reason I wanted to sell was because of the security and financial peace of mind I’d gain for myself and my family. I could use the proceeds to invest, and allow the assets to grow until I am ready to retire. You see, I’d planned on working 8 to 10 more years, but I wanted to be free to see clients, without the burden of management. By selling, my partner and I retained control of medical decisions, while admin duties shifted to others.”

On maintaining an outstanding practice:
“We wanted to find someone who’d value the quality and effort we had put into growing our surgery practice. We hoped they would allow us to maintain the high standard of care we had established. Well, we found them. PetVet has helped us sustain our philosophy and did not want to change our name or brand.”

On staff and transition:
“The transition was smooth. PetVet brought in onsite personnel to meet with employees to assure them their jobs were secure and the quality of the practice wouldn’t change. Some staff members also had the opportunity to advance.”
