Practice ownership allows an individual to control one's destiny over financial matters, management matters and medical matters. Practice owners should expect a financial reward from ownership that encompasses a reward or pay for the provision of providing veterinary services, a pay for management duties and an ROI (return on investment) for the privilege of ownership.
