Vet Clinic Vet R'in Area integrates Onevet (UNAVETS Group)

The Vet R'in Area Veterinary Clinic, a practice led by Pedro Azadinho and Sofia Azadinho, located in Setúbal in the Greater Lisbon area, is now a part of OneVet, reinforcement of our presence in the southern region of the country.

The Clinic is comprised of a team of 10 professionals, including 4 veterinarians and 6 nurses and veterinary assistants, with diversified clinical specialties and a special emphasis on surgery and orthopedics. The clinical space was also recently renovated, with a new, large operating room and new medical-veterinarian treatment rooms, allowing the clinic to increase the range of services provided.

Sofia Azadinho, one of the founders of Vet R'in Área, comments, "The decision to join the Onevet group comes naturally. We find at Onevet the same values that inspired us from the beginning: competence, innovation and human care.

Our team is therefore confident and enthusiastic - prepared to give the best of themselves, their culture and experience - knowing that they are no longer alone, but accompanied by excellent professionals, integrated in a group that is a leader in Portugal."

Pedro Azadinho, also founder of the unit, says "for a veterinarian it is important to know that you have at your disposal the means you need to carry out your work with the utmost zeal and rigor possible. Veterinary medicine has evolved a lot in Portugal in the last 18 years. Today, we need to learn how to work via collaboration and networking with other doctors. Only then will we be able to offer our customers the quality and full breadth of services they seek.

The care shown by Onevet with professional qualification and training and the creation of opportunities for sharing and networking among professionals are, for me, the great added value and the key to success."

Guilherme Assis, Executive Director of ONEVET, says, "The integration of Vet R'in Area in Onevet/Unavets is a milestone of particular relevance for the Group, for its location and the set of clinical valences that, together with the other units of the Group, reinforce our cluster in the Greater Lisbon region. The growth of the Onevet/Unavets network allows us to continuously improve our network of services."
