Candy Bar Giant Mars-Nestle Buys Largest Veterinary Corporation – VCA

It is no secret that large corporations are taking over the veterinary world.  VCA, Banfield, NVA – these are just a few of the names you may have heard.  In just the Eugene area, there are been a recent sell-off to these corporations.  Santa Clara Animal Hospital, Bush Animal Hospital, Delta Oaks Veterinary Clinic, The Ark Veterinary Clinic, The Veterinary Hospital, Emerald Valley Pet Medical Center, and McKenzie Animal Hospital all have sold to these corporations in the last few years.

Now one of the largest corporations in the world has purchased all the VCA hospitals for around $8 billion.  Would you like some M&M’s with that vaccine?

We are proud to be one few remaining locally owned hospitals in the greater Eugene-Springfield area.  We strive to provide comprehensive veterinary care at an affordable price without the gimmicks the corporations are bringing to veterinary care.  Make sure you can trust who is providing care to your pets.
