VetShare | About Us

About VetShare

VetShare was founded in 2008 by Wayne & Ruth Gray, to create a buying group that truly serves the needs of independent vets. They had recognized as practice owners themselves the pressure that was upon independent practices to deliver and sustain a fair and competitive service to clients that didn't impact upon margins or take them away from running a practice. They set their own direction, low administration costs and negotiated with suppliers to ensure that members got their ‘fair share’.

The VetShare way

We believe the best way to support members is to keep things simple; negotiating great member benefits and passing them on to our members. Our team are on hand to ensure that you see value in your membership, by providing simple and straightforward documentation, rebate and discount facilitation, local account management support and purchase data analysis to ensure you are getting the most from your membership.

How does VetShare work?

  • Rebate facilitation and discounted products and services – When you’re busy running a vet practice, it’s hard to find the time to negotiate costs with suppliers – especially if you’re ordering in small quantities. We use the overall buying power of our parent company, CVS and members to get better prices for everyone - don’t underestimate the importance of this, with only 2000 independent practices left in the UK a buying group standing on it’s own is losing buying power as every month a practice sells and leaves the group.
  • Simple paperwork – Each month, you’ll receive a statement listing spend and rebates in an itemised list, for easy reference.
  • Regular updates – You’ll hear whenever a new supplier or discount becomes available either through our monthly newsletter or member portal.
  • Reliable cash flow – When you’re owed rebates on supplies, you’ll get them from us when promised – even if we haven’t yet been paid by the supplier.
  • Great communication – If you have a question, or want advice, we’re always easy to reach – and we’ll strive to find solutions to your queries.
  • Account Manager Support – our gift to you – another staff member, one that can analyse your purchase data, provide alternative products or services and secure meetings with suppliers for you.
