Our Corporate Finance team acted as sell-side advisers to Pets’ Kitchen Ltd on their divestment of the Vet’s Kitchen division, allowing the business to focus on their Vet’s Klinic veterinary practices. The Vet’s Kitchen brand, which primarily operates in dry dog and cat food, will join Pets Choice’s family of pet brand offerings, which include Webbox, Bob Martin, Felight, TastyBone and B-Calm.

Vet’s Kitchen is a premium pet food brand dedicated to improving the health and well-being of pets through high-quality, veterinary-approved nutrition. Founded by a practicing veterinary surgeon, Vet’s Kitchen products are formulated based on extensive veterinary expertise and scientific research.

“We hope to see the Vet’s Kitchen brand thrive under the ownership of Pets Choice,” said Laura Shears, Managing Director of Pets’ Kitchen. “We will continue to work in collaboration with the Vet’s Kitchen team to provide veterinary insight and support product development. Meanwhile, our focus will be to drive further growth in veterinary services where we have a unique proposition and exciting plans for the future.''

Additionally, we would like to express our thanks to Jack and Stewart for their outstanding support throughout this transaction. Their expertise, professionalism and dedication were instrumental in achieving a successful outcome.”

Tony Raeburn, CEO of Pets Choice, added: “This is a fantastic acquisition for Pets Choice as we continue our drive in both product premiumisation and into the vet sector. We’re excited to onboard the Vet’s Kitchen team and pair their knowledge with our own.”

Jack Griggs, Senior Manager in Corporate Finance who led the transaction for James Cowper Kreston, commented: “We are delighted to have acted as advisors to Pets’ Kitchen, having also advised on their fundraise three years ago. Vet’s Kitchen has developed an outstanding portfolio of products dedicated to the health and well-being of pets, reflecting their commitment to quality and innovation. Pets Choice, with its extensive and diverse range of pet products and a strong market footprint, is exceptionally well-positioned to elevate the Vet’s Kitchen brand to new heights and expand its reach within the pet food industry.”

James Cowper Kreston Corporate Finance advised Vet’s Kitchen alongside Blandy and Blandy (Legal).
