Medivet runs more than 300 veterinary practices around Britain, all of which are co-owned and operated by veterinary partners. Of its centres, 18 are open round the clock every day of the year and offer emergency pet care. In 2017, the group raised minority investment from private equity firm Inflexion. The deal helped triple its rate of acquisition: in 2018, it added 83 new branches, boosting sales by 63% to £127.9m. The group was founded in 1986 by chief executive Arnold Levy, 59.
