On Monday, May 2, 2016, Companion Animal Practices North America officially sealed the agreement with Veterinary Centers of America (VCA) the premier Veterinary Corporation in the world. This is a significant milestone for CAPNA. In just five years, CAPNA was able to grow to 56 hospitals and become one of the most profitable hospital groups in North America. CAPNA gained prominence within the veterinary community as the premier group of hospitals guided by its mission: By Veterinarians for Veterinarians. When it came time to focus on an investment partner, CAPNA ultimately chose VCA as the most suitable group to maintain the quality of culture and autonomy that CAPNA has known.
"We are pleased about our new relationship with VCA and we look forward to leveraging their administrative infrastructure and financial resources to take CAPNA to the next level. Our entire management team is excited by the opportunity to grow our company and draw on VCA resources while we retain the independence and culture that has made CAPNA the success that it is." – Dr. Dennis C. Law, DVM, CAPNA President & Managing Member
“We are thrilled to have a partner that both understands our industry and has weathered the tides of change within our profession. At CAPNA, we stand on our own but we are not alone. We are bolstered by the VCA infrastructure and partnership while maintaining our culture and identity as CAPNA.” –Dr. Dennis C. Law, DVM, CAPNA President & Managing Member
