Small animal practice - where next?

    Dixon Gunn is a director of Anval and is chairman of Centuar Services. He is involved as a consultant in the BVA/SPVS practice survey.

The trend towards practices dealing entirely with small animal work is now well established and the size of these dedicated practices has steadily increased.
