About the practice

A practice with huge growth capabilities is available in the Victorian countryside. The practice is currently run as a “lifestyle” practice, with its opening hours restricted to school hours. There is vast potential to expand the business by adding more vets, increasing the opening hours and utilising a spare room as a second consultation room. Whilst the gross income is currently good, 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 in an existing large building (a large garage) 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. The practice sits on a block of land with manicured grounds, has large, clear signage and exudes rustic, country charm.

The cottage is currently rented separately (for $250.00/week, contract expires in early 2019), but could become available if required. The current clientele come from up to 70 km away, from Maldon, Newstead, Carisbrook, Dunolly, Newbridge, Ravenswood, Maryborough, Bendigo and Castlemaine.
