In my neck of the woods (the most beautiful state of Montana), it is finally actually Spring!! Things are getting green and beautiful, and the countdown has begun to get my vegetable garden planted. One of my favorite weekend activities is going to the nursery to look at different plants. Today I was deep in thought going through the rows of peonies and fruit trees (my brain goes a million miles a minute thinking about a million different things, so bear with me on my thought process). I was thinking about what type of article would be most helpful. I have seen quite a few questions lately about inventory management strategies from team members that aren’t directly involved in the process of managing inventory.
There have been a number of people that have been interested in learning more about inventory to help out their hospital, or who struggle with expensive pricing, or just want to know more about the process in general. It seems like the majority have been associate veterinarians, so I wanted to create something tailored to them, and some of the specific questions I get asked more frequently. This is also great for owner veterinarians who don’t quite understand the inventory process or why it is important.
There are several major subjects included in this guide. I start with how inventory is ordered and stocked, then I talk about why inventory management is critical to the success of a veterinary hospital. I go deeper into that to discuss pricing strategies, and why some products seem like they would be cheap to buy, but the client pays more than expected for them. Finally, I finish with how you as a veterinarian can support your inventory management.

Additionally, recently I released a policy and procedure manual that is 99% completed, you will just need to enter in your specific hospital information and team members. If you are struggling to set and implement standards for your entire team; this is a GREAT, easy resource and way to get started right away. You can check it out here.
If you have any questions on this guide, or about inventory management in general, feel free to contact me. I would love to chat!!
