Dr. Joel Parker

Co-founder Veterinary Practice Solutions

Champion of Independent Practices

Speaker, vBlogger (WhiteBoard Wednesday) and Author

Dr. Parker was born in Alaska and raised on the West Coast of Canada. As an early entrepreneur, he established a landscaping company at the age of 15. A strong love of animals then led him to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. He holds university degrees in both Science and Veterinary Medicine from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Parker’s early years in the veterinary industry were spent working in AAHA accredited practices and in 1986 he purchased the AAHA accredited Animal Medical Hospital in West Vancouver, BC. Among its accolades, his hospital was featured in Trends Magazine for its state of the art sound-proof dog ward.

Ensuing years of owner-dependent practice ownership were frustrating and led him to an extensive search for practical management tools. With his discovery of the Hubbard Management System he found what he was looking for. Through application of its specific, tried-and-true management technology, the 1990’s brought Joel rapid success and resulted in the creation of two new companies, Veterinary Endoscopy Service and another that involved the manufacturing and worldwide distribution of a high-end line of dog training equipment, Canine Equipment – Gear Fer Dogs.

In 2004, Dr. Parker decided to take things to a whole new level and help give other practice owners the opportunity to discover the very same management system that elevated his practice to what he describes as the “Standing Ovation Practice” level. Thus leading to the co-founding of Veterinary Practice Solutions as a resource to provide this technology
