    See this article for the information you are seeking:

    Also, you can check out the AVMA Career Center to see the variation in salaries with region etc. (http://www.avma.org/vcc/default.asp).

    It seems you should not have a problem earning $50,000 per year in private small animal practice in most areas as a new graduate.
