UNAVETS, the Iberian group of veterinary clinics and hospitals, has most recently incorporated into the Group the two veterinary centers of Ensanche and Nuevo Ensanche in Bilbao.
They are centers with a long trajectory and experience of more than 15 years that have a team of 6 veterinarians and 2 experienced assistants and a groomer. Specialties are internal medicine, ultrasound, surgery and traumatology, ophthalmology and ethology.
The centers have independent consultation rooms for dogs and cats, operating rooms, laboratory and hospitalization differentiated by species. The teams of both centers are very cohesive, with clinical strength in their specialty areas.
Miguel Casado, Business Manager of UNAVETS, comments, "They are our first centers in the Basque Country and have an excellent reputation among their colleagues and customers as a result of their professionalism and good work. They are an excellent addition to the UNAVETS Group."
The UNAVETS Group now has a total of 49 veterinary centres, 20 in Spain and 29 in Portugal, continuing its rapid expansion. UNAVETS is a veterinary group that has about 500 professionals in Spain and Portugal. The UNAVETS Group (formed by the ONEVET Group in Portugal and UNAVETS in Spain) aspires to become one of the largest veterinary health care groups in the Iberian Peninsula. To continue with its growth strategy in the Iberian Peninsula, the Group intends to develop new lines of services, innovating in digital communication and engagement with its customers and internally to promote cross collaboration, clinical training and scientific development of clinical staff.
