What is a Practice Manager?

A veterinary practice manager works to coordinate, advise, and supervise a variety of tasks at a veterinary practice, (like a local vet clinic or animal hospital). Practice managers will oversee ordering and stocking supplies, training veterinary staff, fund and resource management, safety and security, and general administration. They ensure that the veterinary practice is utilizing their available resources to the best of their ability.

How Practice Managers Work

A certified veterinary practice manager (CVPM) will also oversee financial issues that occur between clients and the veterinary practice. They will analyze disputes and ensure that the client is charged appropriately for the services they received. They also work closely with the practice’s accountant to keep the practice’s finances and tax preparation on track.

Key Takeaways

  • A practice manager oversees a veterinary practice’s administrative tasks.
  • They also work hand in hand with the veterinary practice’s accountant and oversee financial disputes or questions that clients may have about how they’ve been billed.
  • Suppose you have questions about how or what you are being billed for after visiting a veterinary clinic. A veterinary practice manager is the ideal person to reach out to for answers so you can file the appropriate claim with your pet insurance provider.
