The practice – the result of a merger of the equine departments of the Dalehead and Westmorland Veterinary Groups – began trading on 1 February and will become the 31st practice to join the collaborative member organisation.

Improved efficiencies

North West Equine Vets director Paul Smith said: “Having been a member with our previous practice since the creation of XLEquine, I know what can be achieved in terms of improved practice efficiencies, skills exchange and training opportunities, and client satisfaction and loyalty.

“As a new business, we see joining the membership as an important part of becoming established as a top equine practice. It’s essential to develop a profitable, efficient business that delivers the highest level of client care, and we believe joining XLEquine will help us to achieve this.”

Benefits of scale

XLEquine was originally established in 2005 from equine members of the original XLVets group of farm and mixed practices.

XLEquine business manager Emma Batson said: “The XLEquine business model provides both its members and their clients with all the benefits of scale and access to professional expertise, along with the independence provided by private practice.

“We are thrilled a progressive practice such as North West Equine Vets has joined the group, as we know they will bring as much to the membership as they benefit from it, so it’s a win win for everyone.”

North West Equine Vets will operate from branch practices in all three of its current sites at Rathmell, Kirkby Lonsdale and Kendal. A team of eight experienced equine vets will cover the area from Ambleside and Windermere in the north, Poulton le Fylde in the south and Grassington and Keighley in the east.
