Taking Business on the Road

Many traditional fields of work can be turned in to other ventures. A Tennessee woman who has a veterinary degree has turned her practice to one on four wheels.

Veterinarians measure their success in the number of dogs, cats and other animals they heal during a career, and while Dr. Amy Serino Moffat is no different in that regard, she has another way to gauge her accomplishments " the odometer.

As the owner of MobileVet Memphis LLC, Moffat spends her days driving around town to visit clients and their pets in a custom-built $250,000 van, which is capable of handling most veterinary services. So far, she is racking up the miles.

Moffat launched MobileVet Memphis, www.mobilevetmemphis.com, in November after a few years of kicking the idea around and few months of planning once she decided to move forward. She had worked at McGehee Clinic for Animals from July 2002 through the end of last year, falling back to part-time as her business start date drew nearer.

Creating a mobile vet clinic offered a more flexible schedule that gave Moffat and her husband, Mark, more time with their children, ages 3 and 5. Also, as a vet in a traditional clinic for more than six years, Moffat saw that many clients needed the doctor to come to them.

Opportunities for those who earn a veterinary degree should remain good as the number of qualified veterinarians far surpasses the supply. Veterinarians with experience can expect to earn upwards of 80,000 per year.
