Now more than ever it is critically important that your veterinary clinic design maximizes your effectiveness, minimizes your costs, and sets the stage for your success.
Veterinarians can no longer afford to saddle themselves with inefficient, self-indulgent facilities that cost too much, and do too little. The competition is too tough for you to spend your money poorly. The corporate world is taking over the veterinary industry.
Very soon the veterinary industry will be dominated by three kinds of corporate clinics: large high end clinics, large low cost clinics, and lastly large high end specialty/referral clinics. There won't be any room for small one and two doctor practices.
This is the elephant in the room that nobody is talking about.
In the future the only private practice that will prosper and grow will be the distinctive and unique, well run, and well positioned small private veterinary practice.

In response to the elephant in the room I decided to have some fun so I sketched out a veterinary hospital design in an elephant. .
smaller can be better.
