Roseville Veterinary Accountants
The accountants at Cook CPAs help California veterinarians, clinics, and veterinary hospitals with tax issues, returns and bookkeeping.
You probably became a veterinarian because you love animals, but if you’ve opened a veterinary practice in Roseville or elsewhere in the Sacramento Valley, chances are, you quickly realized that there is much more to running your practice than just loving animals.
There is an office to run, regulations to comply with, and organizational challenges common to a small, but growing practice. Even if you’ve hired a terrific office manager to handle the day to day administrative tasks and a stellar bookkeeper to deal with payroll, it feels at times, like you spend more time dealing with administrative and tax issues and less time doing what you love.
Tax and Accounting Services for Sacramento Veterinary Practices
Veterinary accountants are few and far between, but at Cook CPA Group, it’s one of our specialties. We’ve been working with veterinary practices throughout Sacramento for more than 25 years. We also work with equestrian businesses, not just in California, but all over the U.S., and our tax and accounting staff are proud owners of numerous animals including show dogs, horses, chickens, and a cockatiel.
Owner and President, Evelyn Cook, CPA recounts this story about why helping veterinary practices like yours is so important to her.
“My vet was there when I needed her. Of a litter of six Sheltie puppies, the last puppy born was the runt–a fighter who was half the size of her littermates that I named Blair. She could not position herself to nurse, and so my attempts at bottle feeding a puppy began.
As a new breeder, it was a challenge and my efforts failed. Blair became dehydrated and limp, and in a panic I called my breeder who was able to revive Blair temporarily. But despite our best efforts, Blair was losing ground quickly.
Fortunately, my vet saved the day. After thoroughly examining Blair for any physical problems, she recommended giving her Pedialyte. Much to my relief, Blair loved the Pedialyte and started gaining weight.
Without the professional care and personal concern of my vet, I am not sure “Baby Blair” would have survived.”
Here’s another story:
“Following Blair’s recovery, my Doberman Bode injured his back and needed immediate surgery to remove the disk material from C5/C6 in his vertebrae. An entire team—a neurologist, his regular vet, and a rehabilitation vet– quickly sprang into action to support Bode during and after the procedure. Bode made a full recovery.”
