Business plan for a veterinary clinic

Demand and competition analysis
The results of Russian polls show that 37% of people in our country have a cat, 30% have a dog. Much less often they give birth to fish, parrots, hamsters and other animals.

Analytical data suggests that in 2017 veterinary clinics in Russia treated 9 million animals, and in 2020 this figure has grown to 13 million.

The average figure, according to 2GIS, is 5 animal clinics per 100,000 population. But a lot depends on the region – for example, in Omsk and Krasnodar there are more veterinary clinics than the national average.

The most common reasons for applying to such institutions:

skin diseases;
diseases of the urinary system;
digestive disorders;
vascular and heart problems.
Before opening a clinic, analyze the situation in your region: who is already working in the market, what services they offer and at what prices, how much these services are in demand.

Search and repair of premises

The premises of the veterinary clinic are usually located in a residential area – rent is cheaper there. Good transport accessibility is essential.

Approximate area:

for a small clinic – from 50 sq. meters. There you can equip an observation deck and provide some additional services.
average clinic – from 75 sq. meters.
large – from 100 sq. meters. There is enough space for an office for surgical interventions, a hospital, an x-ray, a laboratory, a therapy room, a reception room, a toilet, an intern’s room. Usually the premises are divided by partitions into different zones.
The size of the clinic and the list of services are determined based on market analysis.

SES requirements for veterinary clinics:

distance to the nearest residential buildings from 100 meters;
if you plan to sell medicines, you need an equipped warehouse;
finishing with tiles or other materials that are completely cleaned during wet cleaning
