A new association that aims to represent the interests and promote values of independent veterinary practices has been launched.

Membership to The Federation of Independent Veterinary Practices (FIVP) is open to all UK-based practices meeting the essential criteria of independent ownership and high standards of veterinary service.

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

Practices and organisations wishing to find out more can write to:
