The veterinary market in Western Europe has undergone significant consolidation over the past five years. The trend is set by two main players:
IVC Evidensia – operates in 12 countries with 6100 veterinarians treating more than 4 million pets
AniCura – operates in 13 countries with 2,800 veterinarians treating about 3 million pets
This development represents a significantly higher quality of care provided to the pets and more efficient operation of veterinary clinics. The operational management of the clinics is run by professional management. Doctors and nurses can devote themselves fully to professional care. Consolidation brings an increased investment in clinic equipment and staff professional development.
