Introducing the VHA! A Co-op for Veterinary Supplies and Veterinary Services
Created for Veterinarians, by Veterinarians
With One Goal in Mind…to Help Improve Your Bottom-line

Are you interested in spending more time with your patients and less time on the day to day operations?

How much of your time is actually spent caring for pets, and how much is spent with all of the day-to-day headaches of running your operation? Are you a little tired of spending time finding the best deals on veterinary supplies and services? Are you sure you are receiving reasonable prices from your suppliers and distributors so you can make a decent profit?

If you’re like most of our veterinary hospital owners it’s the bookkeeping, the ordering of veterinary supplies, the payroll, health insurance decisions, and the myriad other tasks that take away from your core business—your patients and their owners!

You became a veterinarian or started your clinic because you wanted to care for animals. You wanted to be the place that local residents brought their pets to get quality care—that was your calling … that is why you do what you do!

Improve your bottom-line through group purchasing power!

There is purchasing power created when a group of like-minded veterinarians come together to benefit each other…and themselves. Through the Veterinary Hospitals Association (VHA) veterinarians like yourself participate in a large buying co-op that offers you these benefits:
