The British veterinary group has acquired online retailer, VetUK.
VetUK is an online supplier of pet care products, including toys, accessories, pet food, over-the-counter pet treatments, and veterinary prescription medicines.
The company is licenced to supply pet medications in the UK and Europe. It has handled 3.5 million online orders and dispatches between 2,500 and 3,000 orders every day. Sales grew by 45 per cent in 2020 as more people ordered online.
Managing director Iain Booth: "Joining VetPartners is exciting for VetUK as we will be taking the company to a new level and it will open up a new customer base for both parties.”
"People want products at the push of a button and that has accelerated during the pandemic as four to five years’ growth for us was condensed into one year."
