Vets4Pets and Companion Care vet group become ISFM practice members

International Cat Care is delighted to announce an agreement reached with the Vets4Pets and Companion Care vet group for all existing 308 practices, and all future practices as they open, to become practice members of ISFM, reflecting their developing interest in feline medicine.

Vets4Pets and Companion Care form the Pets at Home Vet Group, operated with their Joint Venture Vet Partners and is the fastest growing group of vet practices in the UK. The group continues to work towards the target of over 700 practices in both Pets at Home stores and standalone locations. 

Head of Clinical Services Huw Stacey commented that “We are very proud of our decision to make every vet group practice a member of ISFM as the rapid growth of interest in feline medicine both within the profession and with cat owners themselves is remarkable. Membership of ISFM offers us easy access to a huge amount of readily available information for our practice colleagues and for us to show to our clients. In addition, we have agreed that ISFM will produce a series of bespoke feline CPD events for our group which will help our colleagues to be able to offer the highest level of informed feline information to our clients.”
