Vets Central.

Date of Investment
September 2021
Vets Central

Vets Central is a buy & build platform consolidating Australian small animal veterinary clinics.

The Vets Central team provide a differentiated ‘non-corporate’ value proposition (no-rebrand, clinical autonomy) to the highly fragmented industry with a greater focus on maintaining brand integrity and incentivising veterinarians within the clinics through a co-ownership offering. Vets Central offer flexible earn-out arrangements for vendors and provide an equity plan to incentivise key team members and assist in retention, drive ongoing professional development and create recognition, reward and legacy for key operational team members.

Vets Central offers support to veterinary practitioners via a dedicated head office (with recruitment, finance, marketing, procurement, etc), freeing up vets to practice on what matters – patient care & medicine.

We chose to partner with Pemba because, right from the get-go, Pemba were focused on people. Pemba’s approach was incredibly nimble. It was transparent and incredibly aligned to the ethos of Vets Central.
