The veterinary clinic operator announced today that is has completed the settlement of its fourth clinic over the last month alone.

"This year has seen unprecedented growth in size for NVL of more than 60 per cent, increasing from 60 businesses at the start of 2018 to finish the year with 97 businesses. Continued growth over the next 12 months would see us achieve 100 clinics, which is incredible growth supported by well designed and integrated systems and an experienced and agile management team."
