AVMA Releases 2005 Reports On Veterinary Compensation And Veterinary Practice Business Measures; Available In Two Formats

August 16, 2017

Between 1995 to 2005, the professional income of veterinarians rose from 57,507 dollars for private practice veterinarians to 105,510 dollars (rising over 9,000 dollars between 2003 and 2005). But in an era when the number of female veterinarians was growing so fast that they would soon outnumber male veterinarians for the first time in history, there was still a gender gap in wages-female veterinarians in private practice earned 73,000 dollars in 2005, compared with 97,000 dollars for males.

These statistics and much more are available in the "AVMA Report on Veterinary Compensation" and the "AVMA Report on Veterinary Practice Business Measures," which have been released and available for sale by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). These reports contain valuable professional income statistics and information on private practice revenue, expenses and other variables are presented along with important financial ratios. The statistics are broken down by practice type, gender, and region and include trends dating back 10 years.

For the first time, these reports are available in two formats: hardcover and via Web download in PDF format. You can purchase these reports by calling the AVMA at (800) 248-2862 or online here.
