Welcome to TPVS
A top resource for veterinarians and students.

Our clientele is diverse, including many small animal, mixed animal, large animal, and board certified veterinarians.

At Total Planning Veterinary Services, we carefully design each insurance plan to ensure it meets our client’s unique and individual needs.

Disability insurance for veterinarians is the foundation of a good financial plan.

It protects your income if you become too sick or too hurt to work. Every veterinarian should have a policy that reflects their level of education, training, and income. In addition, we believe a policy should offer guarantees in terms of pricing, benefits, and coverage. At Total Planning Veterinary Services, we only provide our clients with policies that reflect these important specifications.

TPVS also serves as a resource for veterinarians who are buying or starting a practice.

These transactions typically require a complex set of insurance solutions that we are uniquely positioned to handle. Let us help you with your insurance requirements to make sure you can open your business on your schedule. In addition, we have other industry partners that can assist you in the accounting, legal, and other areas to ensure your business is running effectively.

Serving the veterinary community for over 30 years.

Why should I use Total Planning Veterinary Services?

We specialize in working with veterinarians and have done so for over thirty years.  We have discounted insurance plans for veterinary students and veterinarians. Most importantly, we have special arrangements that you cannot receive through other agents/brokers/companies. These arrangements are proprietary to TPVS.

Do you have veterinarians that I can speak with as well?

We have several veterinarians who serve as educational consultants and assist with resume writing and interviewing. In addition, they can provide advice regarding working as a veterinarian and starting/owning a practice.

Can someone help me negotiate benefits into my contract?

We assist soon to be graduates and veterinarians with negotiating benefits/money into your contract. We have many years of experience in providing this service.

Should I still purchase my own individual disability insurance if I am going to an internship/residency after graduation?

Yes! You have current and future income to protect. For interns we design a plan to accommodate your reduced income during this time.

Should I still purchase my own individual disability insurance if I'm going to a corporate practice after graduation?

Yes! Call us to find out why!

Do you have someone who can help me discuss becoming a partner or purchasing/starting my own practice.

We provide advice in both purchasing/starting a practice as well as buying into an existing practice. 

Do you charge any planning or consultation fees?

No- we do not charge any planning or consultation fees.
