• Group Purchasing

Combining the Purchasing Power of Many

A key benefit of VHA membership is the group purchasing program. By purchasing in volume from manufacturers and suppliers, VHA is able to offer members "one-stop shopping" for all the products and supplies a practice needs. When members combine as a group, VHA gains tremendous purchasing power, ensuring our membership competitive pricing.

Local VHA Members have access to our distribution warehouse, online shopping portal, reusable totes, and dedicated delivery professionals. National VHA Members have access to our expansive list of vendor partners who offer all members exclusive discounts, rebate opportunities, and pricing on hundreds of products and services you use every day.


Purchase at Lower Costs, While Enjoying Higher Margins

Are you frustrated with trying to get the lowest possible price from your vendors? Are you frustrated by the large national retailers undercutting your costs by a big margin? How do you even know if you are getting the absolute lowest price possible? Every practice owner is looking for ways to control costs and increase margins, without adversely affecting their quality of care.

Unfortunately, as an independent clinic, your options are often limited. As a small independent clinic or hospital, it will be almost impossible to secure the best pricing--you just aren't big enough. Joining a veterinary purchasing group like VHA has become a viable option for many veterinary clinics and hospitals.


From Business to Services to Products, We Have You Covered

As a Local or National VHA member, you gain access to a wide variety of quality services and products by providers and vendors offering many exclusive discounts found nowhere else. Our wide array of partners include, but are not limited to:
