provides a comprehensive suite of services at its 2,900 community
clinics and wellness centers hosted at local pet retailers across 31
states. Services include diagnostic tests, vaccinations, prescription
medications, microchipping and wellness checks. VIP’s veterinary
services and products align with PetIQ’s corporate strategy and
mission to improve pet health by providing consumers convenient
access and affordable choices to a broad portfolio of pet health and
wellness solutions, according to company officials. In 2017, VIP
treated more than one million pets through its installed clinics as
well as its 76,000 mobile clinics.
“We look forward to working closely with Will Santana, CEO
of VIP, who will be joining the PetIQ board of directors as well as
our senior management team in connection with the closing of the
transaction, and to welcoming the entire VIP team to the PetIQ family,” said Cord Christensen, chairman and CEO of PetIQ in Eagle,
Idaho. “The addition of VIP will give us a national footprint in the
veterinarian services segment, and the opportunity to participate in
an approximately $21 billion market in the United States. PetIQ has
focused on providing pet owners convenient access and affordable
choices to a broad portfolio of pet health and wellness products
across its network of retailers, and with this acquisition, we will now
be able to provide the same convenience and affordability with veterinarian care.”
