We built in fall 2010 and opened February 2011. We are a 2400 sqft upper level and about 1900sq ft lower level. We own 1.5 acres of prime real estate located on highway 20 just as you come into Valentine. In the basement we have more boarding, additional playrooms for pets along with an apartment. We are a busy boarding and grooming facility. We have 3 large outside fenced in areas and a 24/7 live webcam for client viewing. The clinic is equipped with the latest flat panel DR radiographs, dental rads, in-house labwork etc. We have around 700 active clients and previously were AAHA and Fear Free Accredited. We have 3 exam rooms, ICU, Isolation, surgery suite and central oxygen. I have only worked 4 days per week since we opened & have had maternity leave every other year for 6-8 weeks with my 3 children. I was never able to get a relief vet to come in for me. I have never been open Saturdays and have never done any on-call duties. Without prior listings my price for real estate is $485K. I have yet to determine the price including my equipment, inventory, client list etc. I know the equipment is valued at $120K and inventory around $15K. So suspect an additional $100-$150K would be a fair number for everything. I am no apposed to a graduated rental opportunity but someone would really have to talk me into it!
