ZonaVet/Vetxpet veterinary practices join ONEVET

ONEVET Group has integrated ZonaVet Group, composed of two veterinary practices located in Mozelos and Paramos, in the District of Aveiro in Northern Portugal. This is an acquisition designed to further reinforce ONEVET's network, providing customers in Aveiro with additional medical services and partnership with OneVet practices. ONEVET's leadership in Portugal continues to be strengthened with each of these integrations, who is continuously focused on reinforcing the clinical skillset and range of services available to its customers.
ZonaVet and Vetxpet already have 18 years of history and the founder of the Group, Carla Reis says that “ONEVET, given its experience in the national market, given the quality standards they practice and given the technical and human resources they have, was the one who gave us more guarantees that they would be the right bet to take us to a higher level. Throughout the negotiation, we felt that there was great affection and respect for our teams, for our identity and implemented way of working, and that the human part plays a fundamental role in the success of our Veterinary Centers.”

UNAVETS Group has a leadership position in the veterinary healthcare market in Iberia (Spain and Portugal), developing in 2 years a group which offers shared services and commercial/development support to its more than 66 practices. This includes referral/specialist centers, 24-hour hospitals, first opinion clinics, and local veterinary offices, thus ensuring a convenient and complete service.

UNAVETS is a leading veterinary group with more than 560 professionals in Spain and Portugal focused on providing quality veterinary healthcare to its ~120k pet parents. In addition, the corporate team collaborates and works together with clinical practices to provide commercial shared services, professional development and clinical training and overall ongoing support.

Plans are in place to continue its growth strategy in Iberia and across Europe, while developing new lines of services, innovating with digital engagement internally and with its customers, and promoting veterinary healthcare training and scientific development within the clinical team.

UNAVETS was funded in December 2019 with funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management L.P. ("Oaktree").
