Investing in Surgical Suites!

Many veterinarians need to think about how to invest in their surgical areas since many practices are experiencing income declines due to low cost spay and neuter clinics, non-profits doing surgery  and specialty centers taking surgery income out of practices. Owners that saw 8 to 10% of their income from surgery now see it at 3 to 4%. It’ll be difficult for practices to maintain profitably in the surgical suite if they spend heavy here and don’t have a lot of volume. Having a good surgical suite with state-of-the-art monitoring equipment will be good for many.
