Dutch veterinary practices launch cooperation
Several veterinary businesses in the east of the
Netherlands will join together in a new cooperation, called De Oosthof, as from
today (1 October).
The new initiative, combining several practices near the towns of
Hellendoorn, Neede, Lichtenvoorde, Groenlo and Eibergen, include 30 full-time
The new cooperation focuses on business with larger farms in eastern and
northern Netherlands and hopes to achieve this through cooperation and knowledge
Key points in the new firm's approach will be prevention through management
- using vaccines and antibiotics carefully, but whenever necessary to continue
the farm animals' health status.
The new cooperation is a joint effort of three hitherto independent
veterinary practices that have been working together since 2003. The new
initiative is an indication of an increasing amount of competitiveness in the
Dutch veterinary market.
