The accountants at Cook CPAs help veterinarians, clinics, and veterinary hospitals with tax issues, returns and bookkeeping.
You most likely became a veterinarian because you love animals, but if you’ve established a veterinary practice, you’re probably aware that there’s much more to it than simply loving animals.
There’s an office to run, rules to follow, and organizational issues that come with being a small, but developing business. Even if you’ve found an excellent office manager to handle the day-to-day administrative work and a fantastic bookkeeper to handle payroll, it feels at times like you spend more time dealing with administrative and tax problems than doing
Tax and Accounting Services for Veterinary Practices
Veterinary accountants are rare and hard to come by, but Cook CPA Group is one of our specialties. For more than 25 years, we’ve been assisting veterinarians in the United States. We also serve equestrian companies across the country, and our tax and accounting specialists are proud pet owners of a cockatiel among other animals.
President and owner Evelyn Cook, CPA, remembers this curious story that shows why helping out veterinary practices is more than just a job for her:
“My vet was there for me when I needed her. The last Sheltie puppy born in a litter of six was the runt, a fighter who was half the size of her siblings and whom I called Blair. She couldn’t lie down to nurse, so my attempts to feed a puppy with a bottle began.
Unfortunately, as a first-time breeder, it was difficult and my efforts failed. Blair became dehydrated and limp, and I called my breeder in a panic to save him. Despite our best efforts, however, Blair was losing ground fast.
Fortunately, my veterinarian came to the rescue. After thoroughly examining Blair for any obvious issues, she advised me that she should be given Pedialyte. I was relieved to learn that Blair loved the Pedialyte and began gaining weight.
“Baby Blair” would not have survived without the expert care and personalized attention of my veterinarian.”
And here’s another touching story:
“Following Blair’s recovery, my Doberman Bode sustained a herniated disk injury in his C5/C6 vertebrae and required immediate surgery to remove the disk material. A team that included a neurologist, his regular vet, and a rehabilitation veterinarian responded promptly to assist Bode throughout and after the operation. Bode recovered completely.”
