Chart of Accounts

Endorsed by several key veterinary organizations and industry partners, including the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Veterinary Hospital Managers Association (VHMA), and VetPartners, the AAHA/VMG Chart of Accounts is the standard for classifying and aggregating revenue, expense, and balance sheet accounts in small-animal veterinary practice. The AVMA Economics Advisory Research Council initiated and coordinated this effort using previously created materials from AAHA and VMG.

Includes definitions for accounts such as:

  • Vaccine Revenue
  • Exam Revenue
  • Hospitalization & Treatment Revenue
  • Fluid Therapy Revenue
  • Diagnostic Services Revenue
  • Rehabilitation Revenue
  • Laser Therapy Revenue
  • Mortuary Revenue
  • Behavioral Services Revenue
  • Alternative and Complementary Medicine Revenue
  • Specialist Revenue
  • Medical Waste Revenue
  • Pharmacy Revenue
