Headquartered in Devens, Mass., Patterson Veterinary serves as a leading distributor of supplies, equipment, technology, vaccines and pharmaceuticals in the U.S. and the U.K. With over 30,000 products from the leading names in veterinary medicine, Patterson supplies companion-pet, equine and mixed-practice clinics.
As part of the progressive, global Patterson Companies family of businesses, Patterson Veterinary draws from an enormous pool of resources to provide expanded services, products, technologies and distribution capabilities. This includes a continual influx of new technology and product and equipment offerings, as well as innovative business solutions to improve efficiency and productivity in veterinary practices.
Acquisitions include the Milburn Equine division (2004) and Intra Corp (2005), a leading national veterinary software developer and marketer of IntraVet practice management software, giving practices another important reason to rely on Patterson as their single-source supplier.
The formation of 15 branch locations, along with the 2008 acquisitions of Columbus Serum Company, Odyssey Veterinary client communication software and Associated Medical Supply, mark significant steps toward establishing a leading position in the U.S. veterinary supply market.
In 2013 Patterson Veterinary expanded internationally when Patterson Companies acquired National Veterinary Services Limited, the largest veterinary distributor in the United Kingdom.
