Take Control of  Your Inventory with Confidence

Inventory Consulting for Veterinarians

If you’re struggling with self-doubt or feeling like you’re barely treading water with your inventory, trust us on this: you are not alone. 

We hear it all the time:

“Managing inventory never works.” 
“It's too complicated.” 
“There's no point to it.”
“It's just not worth it.”

But if working with thousands of veterinary professionals has taught us anything it’s that the exact opposite is true. 

You can establish a smooth-running inventory system and it has the potential to change your life and your practice.

Yes, it might feel beyond overwhelming and like there's no way through it. But there always is. Together, we’ll uncomplicate inventory for you.


You shouldn’t have to feel a pit in your stomach every time you think about ordering. You shouldn’t have to physically look at 600 items every day. You're not meant to run in circles daily. 

You are meant to thrive.

- Erika

I just wanted to thank you. I got our cost of goods down from

31% to 21% in February & down to 17% in March.

Thank you so much for all the guidance you give. This afforded everyone in the clinic to get a nice raise.

- Dr. Sylvia Hewitt, DVM

Working with Nicole has made a difference in our office and how we view business. With the changes implemented and her suggestions, we have successfully lowered our cost of goods by 

15% (saving over $300,000 per year and counting.)

We feel eager to keep moving forward, look forward to improvements, and no longer fear changes. Our office has been transformed.

- Courtney with Sleeping Giant Animal Clinic

The hands on, one-on-one support from Nicole was key. She came into my clinic and looked at my particular situation and made custom recommendations to help with my problems. Others have only made broad, "here's how you do it" recommendations. Because of this...

our COGS is down from 26% to 18.5%!

We feel more efficient, organized, and actually have effective use of our money!

inventory education

When I entered inventory management, I was trained with the "shake a bottle and when it feels low, order it" system. (Sound familiar?) But I decided there had to be a better way. Then I created it.

Since 2017, I’ve helped thousands of veterinary practices across the country develop effective inventory strategies that allow them to excel and provide a gold standard level of care.
