What Partnership
Means to Us

VPP offers a true partnership model. Our doctor partners are not selling their practice. They co-own it with VPP, retaining clinical autonomy and brand identity while gaining operational support to achieve sustainable, high-performance growth and secure their long-term legacy.

I am so glad that I chose to partner with VPP. With the support from VPP, my practices are achieving the goals I had worked toward but that eluded me. We are practicing our best medicine & care, we are communicating as a team, we are growing the clinics and seeing more pets.
For years, my goal was to open a third hospital. I just could not do it with all the other demands for my time. Now within my first year of partnership, together we have acquired the practice I had dreamed of. Currently, we are renovating so that it can open in a few months. The VPP team are 100% rockstars! Every one of them is committed to helping my clinics and team grow and succeed.

In one swift move, I secured my future (retirement) , my present (my income) and my dreams: to partner with people whom I trust while enjoying working with every day, so we can flourish together. Just please don’t tell them that I got the best part of the bargain: to practice the absolute best medicine I can and let them do the rest.

- Dr. Ohad Barnea, Tenafly Veterinary Center and Overpeck Creek Animal Hospital (opening soon)

I partnered with VPP because I love seeing patients, and want to focus as much of my professional time on patient care while having a partner to support the rest of the business needs.

Professional Growth

We invest in our partners and associates through development opportunities that go beyond the lecture-based experience. Through our immersive, community-focused continuing education programs, veterinary practitioners gain the practical expertise they need to thrive in our ever-changing profession.

Student Opportunities

Shaping the future of veterinary medicine is the heart of our focus at VPP, and we strive to do that by developing and celebrating the next generation of clinical professionals. Our flexible externship program provides students with practical, off-campus educational experiences beyond the walls of the classroom and into the walls of the hospital.

We also provide guest lectures. If you’re interested in hearing from one of our doctors, let us know! We’d be happy to connect with you.
