We've expanded to include group purchasing, business services, and ongoing continuing education credit opportunities - and have expanded our team from a few board members to a full-fledged business in the process.

What is VHA?

A Co-Op for Veterinarians, Created by Veterinarians, to Help you Save Time, Save Money, and Improve Your Bottom Line.

Established in 1984, Veterinary Hospitals Association (VHA) is a member-driven association organized to represent the interests of members and the veterinary community. VHA currently serves nearly 400  member veterinary practices.

The goal of VHA is to enhance the profitability of each member practice by positively impacting its bottom line. With member involvement, VHA will continue to offer services that either save money or make money for all members.

VHA supports local community organizations, including the statewide Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA). VHA also partners with MVMA and the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine for the Minnesota Veterinary Institute.


2016 VHA TeamThe Growth of VHA

A group of dedicated veterinarians founded VHA to improve the methods and efficiency of animal hospitals, to cooperate with other veterinary organizations, and to promote and further the best interests of its members.

  • 1985 - VHA began a group purchasing service for members, positively influencing the product availability and pricing in the veterinary marketplace.
  • 1986 - A pet cremation service was launched to provide a dignified, caring and ethical means of cremating clients’ pets. It is one of the founding cornerstones of our association.
  • As VHA evolved over the years, additional services have been added, taking advantage of the efficiencies that come from individual practices joining together as a group.
