AniCura is a leading European provider of high-quality veterinary care for companion animals. Born out of the idea that sharing resources creates opportunities for better veterinary care, the company was established in 2011 as the first merger of companion animal hospitals in the Nordic region.

Today, AniCura is a role model within specialised veterinary care and a valued partner for pet owners and referring veterinarians across Europe.  The company offers a wide range of high quality medical services covering preventive and basic health care as well as advanced diagnostics, internal medicine, intensive care, surgery and orthopedics. AniCura also provides rehabilitation, physiotherapy and dietary advice and offers selected pet food and care products. AniCura provides modern, high-quality veterinary care for pets at about 200 European locations and creates peace of mind for pet owners through excellent access and patient safety. Every year, AniCura's veterinary professionals attend to about 1.8 million companion animal patients. AniCura is a trusted training and referral body.


Nordic Capital Fund VIII invested in AniCura in 2014 and the company is held together with a large number of staff, the Foundation Djursjukhus i Stor-Stockholm and the Swedish investment firm Fidelio Capital, all already co-owners at the time of Nordic Capital's investment. Nordic Capital will support the continued development of the company and the significant investments required in order to meet future veterinary healthcare needs, improving and professionalising veterinary medical care.
