About the Pets at Home Vet Group
Pets at Home Vet Group has 440 practices, approximately 400 of which are operated as individual Joint Venture businesses.

Our Joint Venture model is unique to the UK vet market and it offers ambitious vets an early route to practice ownership with professional support on financing, IT, People, Marketing and supplier relations. Each partner has full clinical freedom to do whatever they believe to be right for each individual patient, including using the products of their choice. The owner mentality drives superior performance compared to the typical company-owned model.
