IVPA MEMBERSHIP LEVELS

Whether you own, aspire to own, or work for an independent practice — or with an organization that serves the industry — we hope you will join us in representing the veterinary profession with pride.

Hospital/Owner

Veterinary practitioner who independently owns and locally operates a single practice with one location, a practice with multiple locations, or multiple practices in multiple locations provided they are not funded in whole by venture capital, angel investor, or private equity funds, or considered NATIONAL in scope. The owner veterinarian must retain at least 50% control of the veterinary practice to be considered independent.

No member of IVPA shall be employed as a senior executive (director level or higher) by a publicly traded or privately held NATIONAL practice.
