Practice Ownership at Vets for Pets Southend Airport

About the practice

Vets for Pets Southend Airport is a busy, profitable practice with impressive year-on-year growth, currently averaging between 220-260 visits per week.

It is a well-established and highly regarded practice in the area, on a spacious mezzanine level inside a Pets at Home store on the Southend Airport retail park. The in-store position provides a great commercial opportunity to continue to work together with the store team, developing ways to drive footfall and increase engagement.

The practice has been RCVS PSS-accredited since 2018 and an RVN training practice since 2015. The practice was also awarded RVN training practice of the year for 2021.

There are 3 consult rooms, open-plan dispensary, prep area and lab area, theatre, separate cat and dog wards (with one walk-in kennel), an isolation room, a small kitchen/office and a separate toilet. There is plenty of free onsite parking for clients and colleagues and the practice is minutes from the A127. The Greater Anglia train line runs alongside, with great links to London and beyond. The airport is once again expanding its flight offerings following the pandemic, so this will offer even more opportunities for travel in the future.

On offer to a potential partner(s) is a high-performing practice with an excellent, dedicated team of colleagues, with approximately 4,000 active clients, split canine/feline and small furries.
