Blogging Hiatus - Henry River Mobile Vet grew!

During a horse show this season I got an email from the owner of Veterinary House Calls of Hickory. He asked if I would be interested in buying his practice. You guys- I was like ummm no thanks super busy no can do.  Then I thought about it and I thought to myself wait this could be the golden opportunity to help HRMVS grow and eventually hire another veterinarian.  I have long grappled with the idea that I DO NOT want to give up my business and large animal but that I want to be able to have a family and feel like a mom that is actually around and not just working all the time.  Large animal still tends to be very seasonal- spring and fall I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off and summer and winter I'm looking for work.  After a few meetings it was obvious that we got along great and that I would be a good match for his clients.

Puppies all day long! (I wish)

So the deal went though end of August and it is now middle of September and I can say that I am enjoying it. There were some growing pains- calls to get get boxes of heartworm prevention were solved by opening an online pharmacy and paper records were put digitally with long tedious hours of my amazing parents scanning in documents and creating patient files.

I have also now hired a tech and she starts next week- I can't wait to see how having help every day changes my daily life and actually gives me some free time! I can actually imagine it because currently I have a great student and we have had so much time in the evenings because she keeps me organized during the day!
Don't worry he is still my main tech! 

Here's to growth and hard working days paying off for a happy fullfilled life!
