VETERINARY COLLABORATIVE CARE = OPTIMAL CARE

You became a veterinarian because you want to help animals. At Veterinary Specialists Outreach & Awareness Project (VetSOAP), we share your goal. And we believe one of the best ways to achieve this is through collaboration between primary care veterinarians and veterinary specialists.

As a non-profit organization, VetSOAP was founded on the premise that working together to care for animals isn’t just good medicine, it’s also good for business. And now we have research that quantifies it.

Learn more about how collaboration is the key to healthier patients—and a healthier bottom line. And, how you can put this knowledge to work for your practice.

OUR MISSION

The VetSOAP mission is simple—and clear: We aim to achieve optimal health care for animals, advance the veterinary profession, and evolve the relationship between primary care veterinarians and specialists.

Our Partners

Our strength relies on our partnerships. We have created a collective of primary care veterinarians, veterinary specialists, corporate groups, independent practices, specialty colleges, universities, animal health care companies, and veterinary associations who, together, will advance the profession. While our businesses may differ, we share the same goals of providing optimal care to animals while growing our businesses.

COLLABORATIVE CARE

At VetSOAP, we’ve long believed there is a correlation between the health of companion animals, and the frequency and timeliness of collaboration between primary care veterinarians and specialists. What’s more, we believe practices that routinely collaborate have a healthier bottom line, a more loyal clientele and, as a result, greater value.

OUR RESEARCH

Following its founding in 2012, VetSOAP launched a multiphase research initiative to validate our hypothesis that there is a correlation between the health of companion animals and the frequency and timeliness of collaboration between primary care veterinarians and specialists. We further sought to quantify the impact of this collaboration (or lack thereof) on the health of animals and the practices’ bottom line. Here’s an overview of the research we have conducted to date:
