- Premier Veterinary Group said the number of pets signed up to its preventative healthcare plan had risen 30% in year through March.

The company's recurring revenue streams are driven by the number of pets that are signed up to the plan.

At 31 March, a total of 275k pets were signed up, compared to 212k a year earlier.

The UK remained the company's biggest market, with 214k pets, followed by Europe with 47k and the US with 14k.

'The US remains a significant growth opportunity and the business is focussed on delivering success in that market,' the company said.
