From its warehouse in Kennesaw, Ga., Veterinary Products, Inc. (VPI) distributes pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and equipment to veterinary clinics around throughout the community and beyond. The company endorses 25 ancillary business services that are germane to operating veterinary hospitals.

To compete against industry giants, VPI has developed innovative products and services that consistently meet their customers’ needs and save them money. By separating packages of high-volume, multi-unit products, VPI can sell units individually – keeping costs low for clients. VPI also partnered with a domestic manufacturer for digital x-ray systems, eliminating the middle-man costs and saving veterinarians $20,000. For VPI, offering veterinarians the lowest price is not enough, the company goes above and beyond to serve its customers, guaranteeing same day delivery for clinics within a 45 mile radius of the warehouse.
