Whether your ultimate goal is to alleviate the administrative burdens of practice ownership and get back to medicine, or to smoothly transition away from the practice to begin your next chapter, Blue River PetCare can help. Just as each acquisition is custom-tailored to meet the individual needs of selling owners, each practice within the Blue River family receives individualized, collaborative support focused on the key operational areas that will benefit them the most.
Preservation of Legacy & Practice Culture
Selling to Blue River PetCare ensures your legacy and the professional growth of your team while providing seamless continuity and peace of mind to those you serve. Blue River is founded upon a commitment to honoring the unique connection each practice holds with their community and does not rebrand or change the culture of clinics that join the Blue River family.
While many of our team members have years of clinical veterinary experience, we believe strongly that patient care protocols and medical decisions should be left to the professionals. For this reason, each of the veterinarians and clinical teams across the Blue River family are encouraged to care for their patients as they see fit, retaining full medical autonomy following a sale.

THE RIGHT DECISION
”We first became aware of Blue River 6-7 years prior to our sell to them in 2019, because they had bought my husband's vet school classmate's clinic in Houston. I called Roy Jain way back then and I was so impressed that he just took 30 minutes to give me some advice to prepare for a sell whenever it might arise.Linda Welch - Former Practice OwnerHutto Veterinary Clinic, Hutto, TX
Then when we did start negotiating seriously with them, it was painless and professional. Also, speaking as the wife of the vet, I very much appreciated that Roy, Ferdie and Dan all came to visit the clinic and meet the staff, to assure them that nothing would change except they'd get better benefits.
Two and a half years later, the same basic staff is still at the clinic, and we still are very sure we made the right decision to sell to "those guys from Chicago."
SUPPORT & CARE FOR EACH PRACTICE
”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.Kim Crawford, DVM - Former Practice OwnerChatfield Veterinary Hospital, Littleton, CO
PRESERVATION OF PRACTICE CULTURE
”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
”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.Doreen Comrie-Bristol, DVM - Former Practice OwnerRogue Valley Veterinary Clinic, Rockford, MI
