Federation of Independent Veterinary Practices.

An association for independently owned veterinary practices has been launched.

The Federation of Independent Veterinary Practices (FIVP) aims to represent the interests and promote the values of vets working outside of larger, corporate organisations.

Membership is open to all UK-based practices meeting the essential criteria of independent ownership and high standards of veterinary service.

The FIVP seeks to work with suppliers that wish to support this sector of the veterinary market and develop services that support its development.
