Is practicing veterinary medicine just a part of your life? 
Tired of the urban rat-race?
Want an outdoor lifestyle? 
Ever considered emigrating to Canada?

The location: 

The practice is located on an acreage on the west shore of Kootenay Lake, nine km north of the village of Kaslo, nestled in the mountain ranges of southeastern British Columbia, Canada.  The geography is dominated by the large, pristine lake and 2000-3000m heavily forested mountains.  The area is relatively sparsely populated, and is becoming a haven for urban refugees. 

The village of Kaslo has a health centre with 4 physicians, a K-12 school, an ice arena, tennis courts and baseball diamond.  A vibrant arts community thrives, with a renowned summer jazz festival on a floating stage.

The real estate:

The practice is located in the bottom floor of a 3 storey, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom  3600 sq ft home built in 1994.  A covered breezeway containing a hot tub and storage adjoins the house to an 800 sq ft shop with a kennel building underneath. A 1000 sq ft barn with hayloft is situated in the adjacent fenced pasture land.  The buildings are located on a 3-4 hectare parcel of land overlooking a  secluded beach on Kootenay Lake.

Please click here to see photos! photos

The practice: 

Established for 26 years, the practice serves the north end of Kootenay Lake, with the next closest practice 75 km to the south.  The practice is 95% small animal with some potential for expanded equine work in the area.  The clinic has separate bathroom, reception, exam, kennel, treatment, and surgery rooms.  Gas anaesthesia, monitors, new CBC and chemistry analyzers,and an older X-ray unit are in use.  Grooming and boarding facilities are present.  The clientele is loyal and appreciative.  Cases requiring referral can be sent to Washington State University vet teaching hospital across the border.  Two part-time assistants and a family member are currently employed.  Annual gross revenue is in the $400,000 range with a high net due to low overhead costs.

The opportunity: 

The home-based practice provides flexibility in time management, allowing a great work/life balance.  It would enable the prospective new owner to continue working while raising a family and allow the veterinary practice to be a family affair.  The area offers unparalleled and unrestricted access to outdoor recreation, with hiking, mountain biking, ATV’ing, swimming and boating in the summer and skiing, skating and snowmobiling in the winter. The current owner is planning to retire in the area and is willing to assist in the transition. The priority is to ensure that the community has continued access to veterinary services, so sale of the practice with inventory and equipment without the real estate would also be considered.

St Arnaud Vet Clinic – Urgent Sale

This practice offers bargain-priced entry to profitable business ownership in a centrally located picturesque town with all amenities.

The Practice:

The workload is generally easy paced, with little after hours.

The practice has run as a 1 to 1.5 vet operation over the past few years, open only from 9am to 5pm on weekdays, but this could be easily expanded if desired, as clients have had to be turned away at times, and with other practices in the region reducing their large animal exposure, an increasing potential exists for horse, sheep and (some) cattle work.

The small animal component could also be readily expanded.

Please click here to see photos! photos

The Real Estate:

The premises occupy a large block (1340 sq m) located on a main road only 1km from the post office with plenty of customer parking and undercover staff parking.

The attached flat is currently being partly used for clinic storage and lab work, but still provides comfortable accommodation when required.

The clinic area has new floor coverings and the block has been re-fenced with new Colourbond fencing.

The Location:

St Arnaud is a centrally located historic gold town, population approximately 2,500, in a cropping and sheep grazing zone. One of the most striking features is the undulating and picturesque bush surrounding the town which has an extensive network of well-maintained tracks, ideal for off road cycling or motorcycling.

The area is also home to over half of the state’s species of native birds, along with kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, goannas and even the odd koala. A large variety of native flora including some rare orchids can also be seen growing here.

The moderate climate is conducive to outdoor activities such as walking and cycling.

Sporting facilities include grass tennis courts and an indoor sports stadium with squash courts, as well as a harness racing track and racecourse.

The town also boasts an 18-hole golf course and two bowls clubs.

A sealed airstrip is located 7km west of the town centre.

St Arnaud is close to the Grampians National Park and various recreational lakes, which provide the opportunity for fishing, sailing and power boating.

The town sits on the northern edge of the popular Pyrenees wine region and the major centres of Bendigo, Ballarat and Horsham are all only an hour or so away by road.

Melbourne is only 2½ hours away and recently established air flights can have you in Sydney in less than two hours from Bendigo.
