One of the biggest challenges facing vet clinics and hospitals is the need to keep on head of evolving guidelines, developing patterns and new medications, treatments and medicines in the field. Animals are also experiencing new health challenges related to their environments of living (Forman, 2012 p.651; National Research Council, 2013 p.22). These trends change from one region to another and easily affect investment patterns. Due to the hands-on nature of veterinarian services, practitioners tend to specialize in certain animal species. From a human capital position, this is risky as a good veterinary practitioner or a staff member can easily walk away from business or cripple a veterinary practice should they feel disgruntled in a corporate body (Forman, 2012 p.651). Thus, consolidated companies face the potential risk of crumble in case one of the ‘important’ employees walks out of the organization. There is, therefore, need to decrease the probability of burn out among staff post-acquisition; this will, in turn, reduce staff turnover and the likelihood of losing important employees.
