Discover Our Opinions About Recruitment

Recruitment within the veterinary industry poses a number of unique challenges. New data shows there simply aren’t enough veterinarians to fill the positions available in practice or to serve the number of clients who want care for their animals. With many practitioners seeking to retire in coming years, and shifts in the supply-and-demand ratios of talent, a serious nationwide hiring crunch has resulted.

Further, many veterinary practices have not changed their staffing procedures, making it difficult to keep up and address these shifts in demand. This gap constitutes a serious risk to public safety, not only to pets and their owners, but the population at large. This is despite the continued need in the market for, and desirability of practicing veterinary medicine.

DVM Recruiting Services is intimately acquainted with these challenges. Our experts will help you navigate this shifting talent landscape, and tailor our veterinarian sourcing based on your practice’s unique needs. Whether you’re looking to retire and potentially sell your practice, or if you’re looking to staff up to increase efficiency and address growing demand, we guarantee that we’ll find a match.
