The contract - of which no financial details were disclosed - is to supply the company's preventative healthcare programme for pets, branded in the U.S. as Premier Pet Care Plan (PPCP) to VPI's 600 member hospitals across 15 states, located primarily in the South East of the U.S.

The initial 5-year agreement is to introduce PPCP to VPI's member hospitals, with a target of at least 200,000 pets on plan. The first pets on plan are expected during the second half of the calendar year.

Premier Veterinary's chief executive officer Dominic Tonner said: "We are delighted to have secured such a prestigious contract so soon after announcing our entry into the U.S. market last month with our first 10 signed hospital contracts.

"VPI is an award winning business and a highly respected industry player. We look forward to a rapid and successful roll-out of our Premier Pet Care Plan across the VPI membership."
