The current owner has been servicing this community since the 1980's and offers numerous animal care services within the central Oklahoma region. The business is well respected in its local community as new clients mostly originate via personal relationships based on the owner's involvement in 4-H / children's livestock shows and trophy sponsorships among other community events. Operating with an s-corp. classification, this business works six days a week and services approximately 272 local clients per month while adding approximately 10 new per month. At the Verden location since 1992, they have built a history of working with local families, livestock facilities and regional corporations to provide effective food animal care for 3,500 average annual clients (with large animals accounting for approximately 85% of current clients). Looking to preserve these community ties, the current owner is a motivated seller that is interested in transitioning the business within the next two to three years and is willing to support a new owner for a transition over a mutually agreed upon time period.
