About VetFamily

Our vision is to be the natural partner for veterinary clinics
and suppliers.

Our story - stronger together!

VetFamily was started in Denmark in 2000 by a group of independent veterinary clinics who were convinced that sharing resources and working together would create opportunities for better veterinary care.


Today, over 7000 clinics in eleven countries are members and VetFamily continue to grow as clinics discover VetFamily's member benefits, e.g. better purchasing terms, support in clinic growth and development, and community. In summary a healthier clinic and better work-life balance.

Our mission is to help veterinary clinics, allowing them to focus most on what they do best, improving animal health! Our community allows all clinics to benefit from new solutions and joint purchasing conditions. Learn more about what we do and why we do it.

The VetFamily team embodies our values


Decisions are made by those closest to the action. Our decentralized approach offers freedom and trust, with an emphasis on accountability.


Building and nurturing the VetFamily community is our priority, and we always strive to provide an exceptional experience for all members and partners.


We believe in the power of teamwork and that by working together, we can achieve more than we can alone.

Keep it simple

We embrace doing things differently but don't reinvent the wheel. We learn from each other to improve, and aim for simplicity in everything we do.


Our community is based on strong local relationships with clinics and supplier partners. By treating each other with respect, we find solutions that work for everyone.
