LuxVet Group, one of the largest platforms integrating veterinary clinics in Central and Eastern Europe, continues its expansion in Romania. In a recently completed transaction, two Vet Consult facilities were added to the Group. 

LuxVet Group in Romania

The LuxVet Group has been integrating the existing veterinary facilities and clinics, providing their founders with capital support and access to cutting-edge solutions and best practices. The collaboration follows a partnership business model, which is based on respect for the past achievements of the integrated entities.  The facilities that join the group retain their brand and their founders remain actively involved in their continued growth. Additionally, the LuxVet Group’s mission is to elevate working standards in the industry. Therefore, facilities joining the Group are offered access to, among other things, knowledge-sharing programs and best practices used in Western European countries.

The LuxVet Group was established in Poland where, within 2 years of its existence, it has become the leading veterinary platform with 700 employees in nearly 40 facilities. In addition to integrating existing clinics, LuxVet is building its own reference veterinary hospital. The facility will open later this year in Poland’s capital, Warsaw, and will be the largest of its kind in the region.

LuxVet launched its operations in Romania last December, with the Vetzone Spital Veterinar in Constanta as its first clinic. Under the recently signed agreement, two Vet Consult facilities will be added to the Group’s Romanian branch.

Vet Consult – a mission of continuous development for the benefit of animals

The first Vet Consult clinic was formed in 2000 in Brăila. In 2016, the facility underwent a complete renovation and in 2023, another veterinary clinic was opened in the same town under the Vet Consult brand. The founder of Vet Consult, Dr. Marian Capatina, leads the team of 6 doctors, 6 veterinary technicians and 3 administrative staff in both locations.

Both facilities have state-of-the-art equipment to provide a wide range of services: from basic veterinary care, laboratory testing (hematology, biochemistry, urinalysis, virology, parasitology, allergy testing) and diagnostic imaging (radiology, abdominal ultrasound, cardiac ultrasound, electrocardiogram) to general surgery, orthopedics (with inhalation anesthesia) and dentistry (including ultrasound tartar removal).

For almost 25 years, we have been developing and improving not only our individual skills and teamwork, but also the methods of examination and diagnosis and the medical equipment we use. This shows how serious we are about fulfilling our mission, which is to help sick animals and support their pet parents. The LuxVet Group is committed to similar values, while at the same time being open to and respectful of our experience and accomplishments. This shows that we will be able to maintain our individual character while receiving unique development opportunities, both for our Vet Consult brand and for our employees - says Dr. Marian Capatina, Vet Consult’s founder.
