What's it like to be a practice owner with Vets for Pets?

There are many reasons why our partners choose to own their own practice. Here are a few practice owners talking in their own words about their journey to practice ownership.

Practice Ownership with Vets for Pets

With our model, you get clinical autonomy. Our practice owners make their own decisions, from the medicine they prescribe and equipment they use, to clinical protocols and creating the rotas that work for their team. Our practice owners have the freedom and independence to run their practice, their way. 

Our practice ownership model is an affordable route to owning and running your own practice. With a minimal initial investment, and a tried and tested successful business model, we work with trusted banks who know and understand how we work. 

As a practice owner, you are the sole beneficiary of your hard work. You get 100% of your future profits. We'll never take a share.

You don't need to be an expert in marketing or finance, or any business area in order to become a practice owner. We bring the expertise in the form of over 12 different business support functions.

Our model enables you to be the decision maker; we are here to provide the support, knowledge, and expertise to guide you to success.

Our model enables you to receive a guaranteed salary from day one, regardless of the size of your client base.

We are the only nationally recognisable, client-facing veterinary brand in the UK.  Your locally-owned practice will benefit from being part of an extremely well known veterinary and consumer brand.

Why choose an Employed role with Vets4Pets

Our rotas and working hours are as individual as our practices, and we try to be as flexible as we can to meet the needs of the whole practice team.

Our beautiful countryside is the perfect place to explore and enhance your wellbeing, and you are never too far from the sea in Northern Ireland. 

Wellbeing is a top priority for us, and family time is equally important. Most of our practices don’t require out of hours commitments and we understand how important it is to balance your time spent both in work and outside. So if you have specific requirements get in touch and we’ll find a role to suit you

As well as our award winning Graduate Programme, we are proud of the variety of CPD courses available, together with the financial support that we offer you. Our memberships with local and mainland veterinary organisations ensure that we have everything covered. 

We actively encourage all of our colleagues to think about their own professional and personal development and recognise that everyone’s requirements are different. If you want to take postgraduate qualifications, mental health training or follow a leadership pathway, then we’ll support your goals.  Our aim is to have a Mental Health First Aider in every practice by the end of 2022. 

Alongside our flexible approach to working hours, we also ensure that our colleagues wages reflect their experience, skill and turnover.  We’ve just launched our new rewards app, along with the generous benefits package you would expect from a major employer in our sector.

Some of the things we’re most proud of are often the hardest to shout about. We work closely with our Pets at Home colleagues, charities and other external providers, to make sure that all the pets in our care, our people and the planet are looked after to the very best of our ability.  Clinical autonomy allows our clients to make the best choice for their pet.
