Does a mixed practice veterinarian have to choose predominantly large or small or can they choose to do half large and small?

This is the beauty of a mixed animal practice - each veterinarian within the practice can choose what percentage large animal and small animal he/she wishes to treat. In some mixed animal practices, there are some vets who treat only small animals and other vets in the practice treat large animals. In other practices, each veterinarian treats both large and small animals, trading off time on the farm (which tends to bring less money into the clinic and therefore brings a smaller percentage on commission) with time in the clinic (which tends to bring more money into the clinic in a shorter time frame). Some practices also have arrangements where each vet works one or two days on large animals then spends the rest of the time covering small animal work.
