Linnaeus family acquires Pets at Home's specialist centres
Linnaeus has acquired Pet's at Home's Specialist Division of five veterinary referral practices.
Five referral practices and 680 staff will transfer to Mars-owned firm.

Veterinary services provider Linnaeus has announced that, subject to completion, it will acquire Pets at Home’s Specialist Division of five veterinary referral practices.

The move will see Pets at Home's entire portfolio of five referral practices become part of the Linnaeus family – part of Mars Veterinary Health Group - including around 680 staff. 

The Specialist Division includes Anderson Moores near Winchester, Dick White Referrals near Cambridge, North West Veterinary Referrals and Eye Vet, both in Runcorn and Veterinary Specialists Scotland in Livingston.

Linneaus said that all services will retain their existing branding and will initially continue with business as usual, with all staff transferring to Linnaeus after completion.

Bart Johnson, Linnaeus CEO  said: “We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues and these fantastic and highly-respected referral practices into the Linnaeus family and to grow our offering further, taking another step towards making an even better world for pets."
