Wealth Club backed Single Companies: The Ralph Veterinary Hospital

The Ralph is one of the UK’s largest multidisciplinary specialist veterinary referral hospitals for small animals. 

Wealth Club EIS investors backed The Ralph from the outset: from the idea in 2017 for a working hospital, to a rapidly growing business turning over nearly £12 million a year and expected to achieve c. £15 million in FY23 – not guaranteed. 

Past performance is not a guide to the future. EIS investments are high-risk and illiquid – you could lose all the capital you invest.

The Ralph – Single Company EISThe UK’s second largest emergency and critical care referral centre

The Ralph is an independent, multidisciplinary, specialist veterinary referral hospital for small animals, based in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. It provides 24-7-365 emergency and critical care (ECC), in addition to other specialist referral services for cats and dogs referred by local vets.

Opened in February 2019, The Ralph is the UK’s second largest animal emergency and critical care referral centre. It sees over 4,000 new patients a year, with staff of more than 200 (July 2022). As a critical-care specialist vet, founder Shailen Jasani could see the growth potential of the veterinary referral market and the geographic opportunity to provide expert care in the M4-M40 corridor. It has been his vision to offer an excellent level of care for pets, at a reasonable price, in a compassionate environment – hence the strapline ‘A Centre of Excellence + Compassion’.
