Vetprop is owned and managed by Nick Butcher BVM&S MRCVS. Nick qualified from the The Royal (Dick) Vet College in Edinburgh in 1983. He began his career in equine practice in Newmarket, and then spent five years in Jersey working in a small animal/equine practice. He joined a small team in Wokingham in 1991 and left in 1999 to form his own group practice.
Nick went on to create a surgery business of over 130 staff in 18 surgeries based mainly in the Thames Valley and Cheshire. He sold the business to CVS in 2007 retaining the surgery portfolio and has been concentrating solely on veterinary property matters since.
