AniCura strengthens its position within advanced veterinary care in Germany
AniCura, one of Europe’s leading providers of high-quality veterinary care for companion animals, acquires a majority stake in Tierklinik Haar in Munich. The clinic is with its 80 veterinary professionals a well-renowned provider of highly specialised veterinary care in Germany.
Throughout 2017, a number of high-quality veterinary clinics in Germany have joined AniCura. With the acquisition of a majority stake in Tierklinik Haar, AniCura cements its position as a leading provider of advanced veterinary care in the country.
Tierklinik Haar was founded in 2003 as the first specialised veterinary clinic in the Munich area by three European specialists (Diplomates), Dr. Stefan Scharvogel Dipl. ECVS (surgery), Dr. Konrad Jurina Dipl. ECVN (neurology) and Dr. Christian Stockhaus Dipl. ECVIM (internal medicine). Today, the clinic is one of the leading specialised referral centres in Germany and about 70 percent of its 30,000 patients annually are referred from other veterinarians. Employing more than 80 veterinarians, nurses and other veterinary professionals, Tierklinik Haar is one of the largest animal clinics in Germany. More than 20 of its employees are either European specialists (Diplomates), assistant veterinarians in residency, or German national specialists.
Tierklinik Haar is located outside Munich on 1500 sqm modern, refurbished premises. The clinic is fully equipped with CT (computer tomography), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), digital x-ray, advanced ultrasound and modern endoscopic equipment. Tierklinik Haar runs a 24/7 emergency service and provides a full range of specialised veterinary care services, ranging from orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery to internal medicine, cardiology and neurology. The clinic also boasts specialised competence around smaller pets, for example, rabbits and guinea pigs.
Tierklinik Haar is very active in the German veterinary community organising seminars and educational activities for other veterinarians. Currently, the clinic has three veterinarians undergoing training to become European specialists (Diplomate residents).
– It is a great pleasure to welcome Tierklinik Haar to AniCura. Their highly skilled team will play an important role in realising our vision of shaping the future of veterinary care, together, says Peter Dahlberg, CEO AniCura.
Following the closing of the acquisition, AniCura and Dr. Stefan Scharvogel have become mutual partners and co-owners of Tierklinik Haar. Dr. Konrad Jurina and Dr. Stefan Scharvogel have assumed the role of practice managers at the clinic.
