1. How many years have you been in business?
2018 is our 7th year in business.
2. What has been one of your biggest challenges in starting or operating your business?
Managing growth is one of the biggest challenges we have faced in operating our practice. We started as a husband and wife team that did housecalls only, and have now transitioned into a two doctor practice with a small animal clinic located in downtown Spencer.
3. What is an interesting fact about your business that most people don’t know?
We offer laser therapy for animals which is a non-invasive treatment option for conditions ranging from wound care to arthritis. We also use it post-operatively for pain reduction following surgery.
Do you have any advice for new business owners?
Build a support team of business professionals before starting your business: lawyer, CPA, insurance agent, etc. Meet with all of them to discuss your business plans. Don’t be afraid to start small and build from there, avoiding debt when possible.
5. As a member of the Chamber of Commerce, how does the Chamber help you?
The Owen County Chamber of Commerce has been influential in assisting with networking with other businesses in the area. Get involved with the Chamber, attend the annual meeting, and take part in the after hours events when you can.
6. Any other information you would like people to know?
In addition to veterinary services (house/farm calls or office appointments), we offer an online store where clients can easily purchase pet meds and have them delivered right to their door.
