About the practice

A practice with huge growth capabilities is available in a high growth, high socio-economic region of Central Victoria. The practice is currently run as a “lifestyle” practice: busy and profitable within its restricted opening hours (school hours).  It utilises an Emergency Vet service on weekends. As it is, its appeal is independence with life/work balance, while there is vast potential to expand the business by increasing the opening hours and/or adding more vets and utilising a spare room as a second consultation room. The current clientele catchment is huge, including Maldon, Newstead, Carisbrook, Maryborough, Dunolly, Lockwood, Harcourt, and Casltlemaine. There is scope to make the clinic 100% small animal, or to expand the large animal component. Don’t miss this chance to make this practice your own!

About the premises

This small animal clinic is in a purpose-built internal renovation of an existing large building behind a fully renovated two-bedroom cottage. The premises contains a fully-equipped operating theatre, consultation room, temperature-controlled hospital ward and reception and waiting area and utilities rooms. The practice has main road frontage, has large, clear signage and easy parking. The property exudes rustic, country charm.

The cottage is currently rented separately (for $260.00/week, contract expires in early 2019), but could become available if required.
