Hi, I’m attorney Renee Osipov with Chelle Law here in Scottsdale, Arizona. We draft employment agreements, policies, and client letters for veterinarians within their practice. If you’re watching this video, it’s likely that you are a veterinarian practice, which has decided to close. The best way to communicate this information to your clients would be via letter. It’s important to give your clients significant time to find alternative veterinary services for their pets. The letter itself may include the reason for the closure, rather that be retirement, illness, death, et cetera. And then the last date that they can obtain services from your practice. You’ll also want to encourage them to find alternate veterinary services for their pet, and then how to obtain any records from veterinary services for their pet that they receive from you in the past, and this can be directly through your office, or you can include a release form within the letter itself.
And then lastly, in some situations, you may want to include forwarding contact information for some of the veterinarians that were at your practice. But again, each situation is unique, so you may not want to do that. It all depends on your circumstances. If you would like more information on this type of letter and process, please go to our website. It’s Chellelaw.com, C H E L L E.com. Our contact information is also on there, and we would be happy to schedule a consultation with you to address any unique needs within your veterinary practice.
