Pew Research data puts the percentage of pet owners between the ages of 18 and 29 at 58 percent. That means more than half of today's pet owners belong to the generation of people who don't check voicemail, prefer texting to talking and are eager to share opinions and reviews online.
Is bigger better, smaller more streamlined, medium most manageable? VHMA set out to determine if the size of a practice can influence the quality of services, contentment of staff and a practice’s economic viability.
