A large animal practitioner should consider having adequate facilities to treat large animals at his place of business. Such accommodations allows the practitioner to cut down his automobile expenses, reduces time spent on the road and away from his hospital, saves the client money for professional services, and assures better conditions for treatment of large animals. Factors which should be considered before building a large animal clinic are the nature of one's own practice, the type of livestock to be treated, the climate of the area, the space available, the zoning restrictions and potential return on one's investment. It should be planned to meet the individual needs.
