Webster Veterinary Supply, a division of Patterson Companies Inc., will changed its name to Patterson Veterinary Supply starting with the new year, the parent company announced Thursday.
Patterson Veterinary Supply will distribute technology, equipment, supplies, vaccines and pharmaceuticals throughout the animal health industry.
Acquired by Patterson Companies in 2001, Webster distributes technology, equipment, supplies, vaccines and pharmaceuticals throughout the animal health industry.
“The ability to further leverage the significant resources and support of Patterson Companies will help us bring more innovative products, services and business solutions to veterinarians, their staffs and their clients,” said George Henriques, the unit’s president.
Accompanying the name change will be a new website, PattersonVet.com, with upgraded features.
“By transitioning to Patterson Veterinary, Patterson Companies is showing just how deeply it is committed to the veterinary business and the customers we serve,” Henriques noted. “The name change to Patterson Veterinary makes perfect sense both from the standpoint of veterinary practices and our business.”
The headquarters will remain in Devens, Mass. Contacts, telephone numbers, account numbers and sales representatives will not change, the parent company reported.
