Pets at Home Buys Vets4Pets for £40m

Pets at Home has bought Vets4Pets for around £40m, and will integrate the latter’s 93 veterinary practices into its 166 in-store vet business.

The deal will net millions for Vets4Pets’ founder, Peter Watson, a former Specsavers and Vision Express executive who set up the veterinary firm 12 years ago. It will mean Pets at Home will become one of the largest veterinary chains in the country and practices could eventually overtake the number of stores.

Pets at Home Chief Executive, Nick Wood, said: “The expansion of our veterinary business is a key element of our growth strategy for Pets at Home, providing additional services to our customers within our stores or close to our customers’ homes.”
