As you can imagine, there are many companies trying to sell their products or services to veterinary distributors because distributors have a customer base. But it behooves the distributor to protect the interests of their customer base by carefully executing a thorough due-diligence on every prospective vendor. We know from experience that not every company that approaches the veterinary industry is introducing a product or service that is fully tested, validated and dependable. And in some cases, the integrity and credibility of companies themselves are in question.
How many companies have called on you with the most cost efficient, reliable, trustworthy credit card processing service? How many different brands of carprofen have been pushed on you?

Our process for approving new vendors and new products or services is a multi-stage review process that is culminated by a presentation to the doctors that sit on the VPI Board of Directors. They make sure that the Board’s Seal of Approval is only extended to the companies that meet our standards. So, when you see an endorsement from VPI, you know that a group of qualified, experienced, practicing veterinarians have tried to ask all of the tough questions before adding the vendor to our portfolio.
As you look over our vendor list, know that these companies have been performing well for our members and that you can invest with them in confidence. It only takes one serious complaint to dismiss a vendor.
