Step One in The Trusted Transition Process is The Conceptual Transition Experience which will begin with a comprehensive interview so we can determine both your financial and emotional needs for the match you are seeking for yourself, your staff and your patients. We will work directly with you to set objectives, identify the transition options for your particular situation and implement plans to meet those objectives. You are in total control of the process.

About the Trusted Valuation Analysis (Veterinary Practice Appraisal)

Understanding the value of your business is a critical first step to selling your veterinary hospital. The DVM Match valuation process determines the fair market value of your veterinary hospital by analyzing factual information you provide, economic conditions and their relevance to your practice, and the industry as a whole. To provide you with the most comprehensive appraisal of your hospital, we partner with certified valuation professionals at Katz, Sapper & Miller. These highly trained professionals specialize in evaluating businesses and have deep veterinary experience.

Because KSM specializes in working with veterinary hospitals across the country, they are able to bring more to the valuation process. They know the challenges you face, and their experienced professionals have in-depth knowledge, particularly in the area of tax.

KSM follows a sophisticated, systematic approach to valuations, and they have an impeccable reputation for fair and objective assessments. Their individuals have professional accreditations in valuation and appraisals – including certified valuation analyst (CVA), accredited senior appraiser (ASA), and accredited in business valuation (ABV) – which means they adhere to the highest possible standards.

Your report will be fair, factual and detailed, with information on the scope of work performed, how the calculations were completed, and, in conclusion, the calculated value. Our goal is to provide you with a realistic and complete Fair Market Valuation of your practice that is based on the experience and knowledge of qualified professionals.
