Why invest in Your Vet?


Over the five years to 2021, the Veterinary Services industry has capitalized on rapid growth in the pet insurance sector and rising pet ownership in the United States. Pet insurance coverage, in particular, has made industry services more accessible and affordable to pet owners, enabling them to choose higher-cost procedures or treatments. 
According to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association, the total number of pets insured in the United States and Canada has grown at an annualized rate of 17.2% over the past five years, reaching 3.1 million in 2020.

The U.S. pet population is increasing, but access to veterinary care continues to be a concern. One method of alleviating barriers that prevent access to care is the presence of pet health insurance for a pet. Dog owners were surveyed to see the impact of pet health insurance on dog owners’ visits and expenditures at
the veterinarian. Using several models, it was found that pet health insurance had a significant and positive impact on the amount spent at the veterinarian. With the growth of veterinarian health care, the veterinary industry will grow as well.

Frequently asked questions

An EB-5 investment is considered “at risk” if the capital is actually and fully invested, with a risk of loss and a chance for gain, and fully deployed in an active job-creating entity. An I-526 EB-5 petition must be accompanied by evidence that the petitioner has placed the required amount of capital at risk for the purpose of generating a return on the capital. Evidence of mere intent to invest or of prospective investment arrangements with no present commitment will not be sufficient.


Direct EB-5 investments projects are not pre-approved by USCIS.  The direct investment EB-5 project is reviewed by USCIS in the I-526 filing.  There is no process for pre-approval of direct investment projects.

Direct EB-5 projects do not involve Form I-924 filings.  I-924 are not applicable in EB-5 direct    investments.  

Since the USCIS does not pre-approve direct EB-5 investment projects, Notices of Intent to Terminate the direct EB-5 project are not issued.  The USCIS may issue a Request for Evidence for the Form I-526 and ask additional information about the EB-5 project.
