“Should We Buy That New X-Ray Machine? – And Other Questions That Keep Us Up At Night” – that’s the title of a free webinar being presented by the Veterinary Practice Management Program Friday, November 8, at noon.  The event is part of a webinar series conducted by VPMP – the premier veterinary practice management education program taught by Krannert School of Management faculty.

Consider this hypothetical scenario: the practice manager, Terri, at the fictional Corgis Only Veterinary Clinic has a problem: how to justify the purchase of a new x-ray machine to her practice owners. Can you relate to Terri? Professor Amanda Thompson, entrepreneur-in-residence, will walk webinar viewers through all the aspects of the decision-making process of a capital expense, including identifying the funding needed, estimating the return on investment, and preparing a recommendation to practice owners.
