CVS has acquired West End Veterinary Partnership, an Edinburgh-based veterinary practice, bringing the number of practice groups now within the company’s practice division to 100.
CVS operates out of 267 sites across the UK.
West End Vets is a well-established small animal practice in Edinburgh, employing around 12 staff.
Its main site is in Bread Street and it has two branches elsewhere in the city.
Owners David Rimer and Maurice Hunter are joining CVS as joint clinical directors.
Simon Innes, CVS chief executive, commented: “We are rapidly broadening the range of practices within CVS, both in terms of the type of practice and in terms of geographic spread.”
“West End Vets is a successful and popular practice in Edinburgh and we are delighted it has now joined our family.”
CVS UK was founded in 1999 and is run principally by vets, employing more than 3,000 staff at its practices and surgeries across the UK and in its related veterinary businesses.
