An offering that makes sense

How the buying group works:

Enhanced Discounts

With enhanced discounts and rebates on a wide range of products from pharmaceuticals and consumables to laboratory and pet cremation services, you save on costs when you work with us.

Net Net Pricing

By giving you easy access to the true net net cost prices of all the products in your wholesaler’s product range you'll be able to make quick and accurate purchasing and pricing decisions.

Management Support

Our financial reports and management tools are specially designed to reduce your administrative costs while giving you a completely transparent view of your purchases, giving you more time to deliver care.

Giving You Extra

It's not just about pharmaceuticals – we offer added value services at competitive rates such as training and CPD, pet health plans, equipment servicing, human resources support, safety services, practice insurance and financial services.

Professional Development

A partner in your team's success

We know the landscape of veterinary care is changing. The skills required to thrive are, too.

Join our Business Academy and receive ongoing year-round development for your vets, nurses, receptionists and support staff. The Business Academy offers professional staff development via seminars, webcasts and downloadable tools covering key topics including Leadership and Communication, Planning for Profit, Key Performance Management and Client Management.

Additional services

Pharmaceuticals and Consumables
Our members benefit from discount analyses, statement consolidation and management reports designed to give them better insight into savings and costs. Also, as part of our buying group, you'll have the chance to work with our wholesale team. When you do, you'll save on pharmaceuticals and consumables, helping patients get the products they need quickly and safely with next-day delivery to their doors. 
Laboratories and Pet Cremation 
There are few life events as personally complex as the passing of a pet. When you work with us, we connect you with leading laboratories and crematoria that provide significant benefits and excellent terms for you and your patients. We also centralize related invoices, reducing your administrative load allowing you to focus on your patients' needs during difficult times rather than logistics. 
Debt Recovery and Enforcement 

Debt Collection Services (DCS) are pleased to provide a bespoke service to MWI members, working with vets across the country to retrieve money owed to our clients. This includes receiving a free initial consultation, bespoke monthly reporting and online 24/7 access to view the status of your accounts. DCS will work with you to understand your organisation, answer all your questions, keep you fully informed of progress and ensure the optimum outcome for your practice.
