"I can't see a time when we won't be members of VGP!
They've become an integral part of our business and have aided in our growth in more ways than we could have ever imagined."
Nick Edis
Collie and Narrogin Veterinary Services, WA
“As an independent practice owner, VGP offers me all the benefits of a corporate while retaining my independence.
For me, VGP is a no brainer!”
Geoff Golovsky
Vet HQ

" VGP has been a great partner! The rebates are clear, concise and paid on time, which is a refreshing change. I enjoy running my business the way I want to, with the confidence and security of having VGP in the background to tidy up all of my loose ends and keep me on track to meet my goals"

Roslyn Davies
Kingston Veterinary Hospital, VIC

"Since joining VGP in 2018 our business has gone through several changes. The assistance from the VGP and their practice coaches made the change process more efficient and allowed us to execute with precision. They supplied us with endless resources and support throughout, which saved copious amounts of time trying to find or develop these ourselves. We have forged a strong partnership with VGP and there are seldom weeks that go by that we do not call on their practice coaches for support and advice or to assist us with resources in the form of policies, surveys and much more.

VGP are dedicated in helping our business grow and succeed by offering their continual support and expertise."
