“"My wife and I sold our veterinary practice to BRP, and I continue to enjoy practicing after the transaction. BRP helped relieve the anxiety we had about continuing the legacy we had worked so hard to build over 35 years. BRP has done what they said they would do and have been good partners to us."”Dr. Kenneth WilliamsHeights Veterinary Clinic, Houston, TX
“The transaction went very smoothly. Everyone at Blue River was up front and honest through the entire process and they continue to be great to work with. We’ve been with BRP for almost 2 years, and continue to believe we found the best possible buyer for our practice.”Drs. Terry and Carol PittsPitts Veterinary Hospital, Lincoln, NE
“Blue River Pet Care was by far the most professional of the several buyers I considered when selling my practice. They have supplied resources to make improvements to the hospital itself as well as enabling us to buy cutting edge equipment. Our clients have no idea the practice was sold as the transition was seamless. Blue River does not mandate how we practice and has kept all their promises made to us. The hospital has grown since acquisition as we continue to practice the way we always have.”Dr. Rick NurseMoore Veterinary Hospital, St. Clair Shores, MI
“We chose BRP because of their hands off style of management and track record of staff retention. We did not lose a single staff member or client after the transition. BRP has helped us through issues such as recruitment of a new veterinarians, employee terminations, establishment of our discovered microchip policy, and others. Their responsiveness to calls and emails has been unbelievably prompt.”Ben Trogdon, Hospital AdministratorNipomo Dog & Cat Hospital, Nipomo, CA
“The sale process with the Blue River team was as smooth as anyone could ask for. Blue River has impressed me with their support and care for each practice. This is evident at their annual meetings which include a fun learning environment for medical directors and practice managers. They have a hands off attitude allowing practices to continue being successful. Blue River's team of intelligent, innovative, and caring professionals has been a pleasure to work with.”Dr. Kim CrawfordChatfield Veterinary Hospital, Littleton, CO
“I took a chance and replied to an email inquiry from BRP. After the initial meeting with Dan and Roy, I knew they were not like the others. My hospital could keep everything the same and the clients would not see any difference in overall quality and care. As it turned out, this was true. I can’t imagine the stress I would have gone through if I had sold to someone else. BRP guided me through the process and made the transition as smooth as it could have gone.”Dr. Doreen Comrie-BristolRogue Valley Veterinary Clinic, Rockford, MI
“We sold our practice to BRP after entertaining offers from several other groups. We chose BRP because of the relationship we formed with Dan, Roy and Ferdie. Knowing that we would stay and work in the practice, we were strongly attracted to BRP's philosophy of letting the practice operate as it always had. It’s been a few years and everything has gone exceptionally well.”Dr. Craig NausleyBriarcrest Veterinary Care Center, Tucson, AZ
“Prior to the selling my clinic, BRP promised not to change how we practiced medicine or our practice culture. I continue to practice for BRP and can say that they have been true to their word and not interfered with how we practice. Very few of our clients even know that the practice has been sold. I would recommend BRP to anyone that is considering selling their practice.”Dr. Ron GuzmanRiverside Park Veterinary Clinic, Grants Pass, OR
