OneVet integrates Hospital Veterinario Nobrevet (UNAVETS Group)

Nobrevet Veterinary Hospital (Nobrevet), a practice led by Joana Nobre for over 13 years, located in Caldas da Rainha (¬ an hour north of Lisbon, Portugal), has joined the Onevet Group, reinforcing the Group's presence in the central region of Portugal.

Nobrevet has been on a path of growth and development focused on clinical expertise, with a team of 16 professionals determined to provide a careful service, with quality to its clients, everything "for their health".


Joana Nobre, founder and Clinical Director of Nobrevet, comments: "Being part of Onevet is the certainty that we will continue to grow, that we will rise to the challenges and that we will broaden our horizons, working with specialized colleagues, graduates and with the possibility of the clinical staff to have access to high-level training. To integrate the Onevet team is to know that we are accompanied on a path that is not always ‘clear’ and whose goal is to offer the best to our patients and the pet owners so that they have access to a veterinary service of excellence”.

Guilherme Assis, ONEVET's Executive Director, says, "The integration of Nobrevet is another milestone for the Onevet/UNAVETS Group in the provision of a quality and extended service, with reinforcement of our presence in the central region of the country, relying on a dedicated and professional team. We are very pleased about the services that we will now make available to our clients through Nobrevet."
