Friends of VetBooks

Who We Endorse

We’ve been in the veterinary industry for a LONG time. We know and like a lot of people. The friends listed on this page are not only people we’ve known for a long time but also people we trust. As a reminder, relationships aren’t one-size-fits-all. Just because we like these people doesn’t mean they’re an automatic fit for your business. We don’t endorse their work. We don’t endorse their pricing. We don’t endorse their skills. We DO endorse them as good, kind, and honest human beings – which is a great start.

If you’re looking for assistance with a service that we don’t have listed here, or would like us to offer more providers than the ones listed here, we strongly encourage you to check out VetPartners. VetPartners is an association of consultants and advisors with expertise in a broad spectrum of business disciplines with a focus on helping veterinary practices maximize their potential.
