Pets at Home has delivered strong first-quarter financial results, including a 25.7% increase in group sales to £377 million.
In its trading update, Pets at Home reported good growth across both food and accessories, in-store and online.
Peter Pritchard, Pets at Home’s group chief executive officer (pictured), said that the strong performance across the company’s veterinary operations continued through the quarter, with customer sales across First Opinion practices around 30% higher on a two-year basis.
Mr Pritchard said: “It is pleasing to note that many of the positive trends from our last financial year have accelerated in the current quarter.
“Key indicators point to continued growth in pet ownership, providing a supportive backdrop to long-term growth across the underlying market and our business, and we continue to see strong growth in new customers, subscription plans and veterinary clients.
“I remain incredibly grateful to all our colleagues and partners across the group for their continuous hard work and excellent customer service.”
