His background is in asset protection, and as Managing Partner he oversees the operation and growth of the company as a whole.

Randy Carsch (Veterinary Sales and Consulting) has partnered with VetWealth to provide sales, appraisals, valuations and increased profitability to veterinary hospitals and veterinary clinics throughout Texas. His strength is finding the “potential growth” in a practice and converting that potential into additional dollars resulting in significantly improved financials.
Dr. Randy Carsch received his DVM from Texas A&M. In addition to having been a successful veterinary practice owner and owner of multiple hospitals, Dr. Carsch has combined his knowledge of veterinary medicine with business management expertise to help other practices grow. In 1984, Dr. Carsch purchased his first clinic in the Pacific Northwest for $76,000. He sold it 14 years later for more than $1 million in cash. He went on to merge another practice and start a third from scratch.

Services That We Provide
Exit and Retirement Planning
VetWealth assists veterinarians to plan for the eventual transition into retirement, maximizing the after tax proceeds available to provide passive income streams in retirement. Utilizing proprietary methodology, we typically see substantial increases in retirement for those who implement our efficiency audits into their comprehensive plans.
Whether you have recently graduated from vet school with large student loans, or have numerous personal and business creditors, VetWealth can equip you with advanced software to determine the most efficient pathway towards complete debt reduction and financial freedom, optimizing your wealth building potential. We give more than lip service to debt reduction…rather, we build it into every financial plan, saving our clients hundreds of thousands of dollars that would have been lost to financial institutions.
Proactive Tax Strategies
We understand that veterinarians need more than bookkeeping and historical accounting. As income increases, proactive tax mitigation becomes a critical and essential component of sound financial planning. From personal tax plans to engineered cost segregation and property tax reduction, we allow our clients to see a thorough savings assessment prior to
any obligation to hire our team.
There are thousands of investment choices in the market place today. To help doctors make sense of it all, we equip veterinarians with information based on extensive research and experience, looking for proven money managers in good years, but even more importantly in the down years. We combine the proper choices into models available to help maximize your portfolio earning potential. Doing the due diligence first allows us to concentrate on your exact needs when we begin your financial planning process.
It’s one thing to develop a financial or wealth management plan; it’s another to make sure it continues to be executed successfully. As time goes by, your goals and needs may change, and we will work with you to ensure the plan and portfolios we recommend and implement are the best fit for your current situation.
Insurance and Risk Management
Veterinarians can save a small fortune on their insurance plans by working with experienced, independent fiduciaries. VetWealth advisors have a distinct advantage over other agents by being able to advise on AVMA benefits, as well as other highly rated and competitive companies.
