About the practice

This is a great opportunity to own your own Veterinary Practice. We are offering a very reasonable purchase price for a well-established and progressive veterinary Hospital. This is an opportunity for you to direct and expand your own career and make more money than working as an associate. With our efficient and well-qualified staff this practice almost runs itself. The current owner would provide any required transition time.

Westlakes Veterinary Hospital was established in 1981 and has a loyal and valuable clientele. The staff are a happy, efficient, well-qualified team. The hospital has up-to-date equipment, including digital x-ray, M3 dental, ultrasound and portable ECG and uses Vision VPM software.

This is currently a 1.5 vet practice, however, there is huge potential to increase the turnover as this area is growing, with new housing developments underway. After hours emergencies are handled by the Newcastle Animal Emergency and Referral Centre. This allows an excellent work/lifestyle balance if required - or the potential to handle your own after hours, thus increasing turnover enormously.

About the premises
