When did Greencross acquire ARH Homebush?

They own the AEC emergency vets in Melbourne too.

I’m not a happy camper!   There will soon be no independent vets left,  :cry:

I'm not sure if it is a good or bad thing tbh. I can see a lot of negative but maybe for many vets, not being a business owner but just being an employee frees them up mentally somewhat, and also means they don't work so far over reasonable hours?

 

Though I admit I don't use a greencross vet...

Mal’s BV just told me it’s old news so there’s your answer. :laugh:
 

I didn’t know either. We switched specialist hospitals a while back as neither Mal or I were happy anymore. I’d be curious as to the ownership status at the time we left...

When vets sell to big corporates they sometimes go downhill. We made the sad decision to leave our family vet of 20 years. :cry:

 

I can see there being benefits for practice owners but I know not all vets are happy working for corporate practices.

Our dogs have been with GreenCross at Bobbin Head Road in Sydney for 11 years ( before it was GreenCross). They have continued to be amazing vets. Now our Golden Retriever has been a regular at ARH Homebush and they are great too. Can’t complain at all.
