Veterinary Purchasing Group is Improving Profitability for Animal Hospitals in New England

Share Article

Veterinary Purchasing Group is a collaborative alliance of veterinary hospitals that joined together to improve profitability through the utilization of a group purchasing strategy. By collectively negotiating with preferred suppliers as a single entity, this group has achieved lowered contract pricing with veterinary supply, pharmaceutical, and laboratory organizations. In addition, this group also obtained lowered rates on other core expenses such as gas, electric, and credit card services.

Veterinary Purchasing Group is saving animal hospitals significant amounts of money across a broad range of expense categories. The founders of the group have developed a business model that allows hospitals to participate in the group buying program with little risk and effort and they can start saving immediately.

"We are excited about our group's success and ability to drive down costs for the independent veterinarian," said Dr. Scott Crawford, Co-Founder. "Veterinary hospital owners and practice managers are witnessing spiraling costs in their industry and are forced to make tough business decisions and quite honestly medical decisions. The cost of providing high-quality veterinary care to each patient is escalating. Veterinary Purchasing Group offers animal hospital owners and managers the opportunity to drive down most of these expenses."

Veterinary Purchasing Group, LLC was founded in June of 2010 with just a few members and has grown rapidly to representing over 60 veterinary hospitals. For more information about this group or to join, please visit
