The UK’s market leader in veterinary wholesaling and distribution, National Veterinary Services (NVSL), has acquired VetIT, the UK’s leading provider of IT cloud-based solutions for the veterinary industry.

VetIT, headed up by MD, Tony Houghton, started in 2007 and has teams based in Wiltshire and South Wales.
