Intrinsia Vet is an award-winning veterinary management consultancy based near London, UK. We work internationally across organisations up and down the veterinary and Animal Health supply chains.
Our organisation revolves around strategy, leadership, and culture. We believe that they are intrinsically linked, and an organisation cannot reach its potential unless these factors play a part in all its operations and decisions.

Here’s What Our Clients Say
I have been very pleased in my experience with IntrinsiaVet. They have been extremely attentive and diligent about my hospital’s needs and are easy to work with when it comes to identifying creative solutions to overcome challenges. I definitely wouldn’t have been able to make the progress that I have without IntinsiaVet and highly recommend them to anyone planning to start a new veterinary clinic or looking for ways to improve their existing practice.

Frequently Asked Questions
What size organisations do you work with?
We work with a variety of different sized businesses. Our offerings range from working with solo entrepreneurs, or individuals within teams, to working with teams themselves and organisation-wide strategic projects. However, much of what we do requires an organisation (or potential start-up organisation) to be of sufficient size to fully utilise our analytical and diagnostic tools and expertise.
Do you work with non-veterinary organisations?
Yes. We work with a variety of different businesses across the veterinary and animal health space. From veterinary practices and corporates to animal health pharmaceutical companies and everything in between; if you’re an organisation in or looking to enter the veterinary or animal health industry, we can help.
How much do you charge?
Our fees will always vary with the type and complexity of a project; however, we always provide a full proposal in writing with a breakdown of costs prior to starting any project. You might find the examples helpful in our insight on “how much does a veterinary business consultant cost?”
Do you consult in-person or virtually?
Both. We work within the UK and internationally, therefore we are able to provide our services via both formats, in line with your preference. However, with certain projects there are aspects that will need to be conducted in person and therefore travel expenses will be included in the proposal.
Do you bring in more consultants for larger projects?
Yes. We have a network of people we trust to deliver parts of particular projects as and when needed. However, we will always be your main point of contact and, as any work we outsource remains under our banner, we ensure it meets our standards.
How quickly can you start working on our project?
This will depend on the type and number of projects we are currently delivering. However, we will always endeavour to be able to work within your time frames where we can.
