Review:

Mark and Sheila definitely exceeded all of my expectations and much, much more! This books is by far an upgrade from the original book, it provides all of the tools necessary to run a well managed, successful, and highly profitable veterinary practice. --Mandi Johnson, RVT, Practice Manager, Animal Emergency and Pet Care Clinic of the High Country, PLLC

This book is a must-read for any veterinary hospital that wants to up their game. In the ever-changing world of veterinary medicine if you are standing still you will be left in the dust. Mark Opperman is the man when it comes to veterinary consulting. It's like having the best coach in your corner: If you follow these principles you will watch your veterinary hospital turn into what you have always dreamed it could be. --Stewart Robson, DVM Fox Creek Veterinary Hospital

This book is it! The original book is the foundation upon which I've built my practice management skills, over the years. This second version is even more powerful with updated tools, tips, resources, and information. --Marianne Mallonee, CVPM, Hospital Administrator and part owner of Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital
