About us

PBG is a leading veterinary buying group operating in the UK & Northern Ireland. We work directly with veterinary practices, negotiating rebates and discounts on pharmaceuticals, consumables and services while maintaining strong relationships with over 60 reputable manufacturers and third-party providers.

Passionately Supporting Independent Vets

With our buying group originating from an independent veterinary group, we firmly understand the needs of veterinarians and are passionate in supporting the independent sector.

We work with veterinary practices, mobile / ambulatory vets, animal charities, and universities and we constantly strive to enhance our rebates and improve the benefits we offer our members, so they can grow profits, focus on developing their staff and practices and crucially save them time.

Members retain decision making power

By working with us, our buying group members tap into the collective buying power of a network, which opens the door to manufacturer rebates and value added services.

But crucially, although we are happy to offer advice, recommendations and options, we are careful to ensure that the decision making remains at practice level, and that our veterinary partners do not have their clinical freedom impinged.

If this style of partnership and support appeals to you, please contact us today.

See All of the Team

Chris has been in the Animal Health industry since 2008, holding sales and management positions at area, regional and national levels. He joined PBG in May 2016 and after holding the roles of Business Development Manager and Commercial Manager, he took over the running of the buying group in February 2022.

Alongside leading the group, Chris covers Wales and the West, as he feels it important to still be meeting and talking to members regularly, so he continues to understand the needs and wants of independent practices.

Outside of work Chris enjoys reading, watching boxing and is a huge fan of the NFL and the New England Patriots from his time spent living and working in Boston, Ma. Chris is a proud husband and father to his wife Joanna, his daughter Emily and Betty the miniature schnauzer!

Nathan joined PBG in August 2022 after working in the Animal Health industry since 2018. After being a partner to a vet for 13 years and attending many a vet / nurse function, he wanted to apply his sales skills to the veterinary industry. Previously he had enjoyed a successful career as a Salon Support Manger within the beauty industry. Priding himself on excellent customer service, the ability to tailor his approach to fit his customers’ needs and demonstrating an ability to think outside the box.

Outside of work Nathan has three cats (Ryan,Meg and Felicia) and a dog (Sophie). He can usually be found either exploring the outside or on the couch with a book in his hands. He loves to read and write MM romance and published his first book in 2022. Nathan also likes to play video and board games, watch anything Disney and paddle board with his partner, weather permitting.

Graham joined the buying group in October 2023 with a wealth of knowledge and experience from his previous roles, working in the Veterinary sector since 2013. With expertise in areas such as cloud based PIMS, diagnostics and pharmaceuticals, Graham also has extensive experience across Scotland, Northern England and NI in territory and key account management.

A proud Northern English man hailing from Cumbria and currently live in Fife, Scotland, Graham is kept very busy with his family; wife Emma, baby Ollie and their Golden Doodle / hairy mammoth Alfie. Graham is an avid Carlisle Utd fan…someone has to be. Being from the Lake District, Graham love the outdoors, and you can often find him and wife Emma paddling the waters of the Forth in their Kayaks with a beer or two.
