When other buying groups have floundered and been sold to corporates (if you hadn’t heard VetsWest and St Francis have now both sold to MWI and VetShare to CVS) Vetsure have continued to increase the rebates on offer to our members – both through the core Vetsure for Vets Group and through the new Vetsure Platinum Group.
We saw the recent surge in acquisitions coming some time ago – corporate acquisition is inevitable for businesses uncertain of their future. These changes actually offer a great opportunity to Vetsure! Despite the incredibly dynamic nature of the marketplace, we believe that the future for forward-thinking independent practices is rosy. But we also believe that such practices need to work collaboratively to stay ahead of the game. That’s where we come in. Our buying group solutions continue to drive ever-improving rebates to our members at a time when suppliers are typically pushing back from other buying group models – consequently, the value that other buying groups are able to deliver to members will inevitably diminish.
Vetsure has always strived for, and successfully delivered, win-win partnerships with business partners – this will increasingly bear fruit for our members in 2016!
Vetsure are more than ‘just’ a buying group and insurance provider. The icing on the cake to what they offer is a very useful graduate support online training program which provides a structured approach (with templates) to help take a recent graduate safely and steadily through from their first day to full integration into the practice team. Worth joining for that alone!

Cheesy but true, I love that I can email a query over and it is dealt with straight away (or as soon as the office is open if I have emailed over the weekend). Everyone I speak to (and email) is so cheerful – just a pleasure to deal with – this certainly makes you stand head and shoulders above the rest.

Great help with the new grad scheme — thanks to all staff.
- Jane Marshall, Rufford Vets
The Vetsure Team members are an absolute joy to work with, and have become true friends as much as knowledgeable, ethical and inspirational business colleagues.

There are so many things that I love about Vetsure which for me sets them apart from other buying groups and insurance companies. Their core values, their ideals of collaboration amongst independent veterinary practices, and most importantly their trustworthiness all lend to an incredible personable business model.
