CPC Celebrate 40th Anniversary
In 2019, CPC celebrates 40 years of providing the UK’s pet owners with a dignified pet cremation service.
Vetspeed Limited, trading as CPC, was founded in 1979. The partners in the business understood the pressure of working around the clock, while also trying to maintain a good quality of life. CPC created a cremation solution for the Veterinary profession with a dedicated daily and out of hour’s emergency service for pets and owners wanting something more than what was on offer.
During the last 40 years, CPC has pioneered innovation in cremation technology and embedded bereavement care into the veterinary profession. This has given pet owners the choice of cremation options that have become the norm for pet owners today.
CPC has changed over the years; adding more crematoria across the UK has made CPC a nationwide pet cremation supplier. This allows us to work with independent vets, large veterinary groups and animal charities throughout the UK. Along this 40yr route, we have developed alternative incineration and autoclaving services for veterinary waste. This gives our veterinary clients total control and security in the knowledge that we can deliver a dedicated one-stop shop.
Regardless of what changes we see in the Industry, CPC will remain true to our founding principle.
“To provide a range of pet cremation services for bereaved pet owners with sensitivity and respect.”
This principal has allowed us to supply dedicated bereavement care, specialist training and continue to support vets and pet owners.
What does the future hold?
We are investing in innovative ways to support the Veterinary sector. Our plans in 2020 include launching an e-learning program for all veterinary staff; the course content is based on the knowledge we have gained from 40yrs of working alongside many leading industry figures and authors.
The courses will provide training on end-of-life options, bond centered euthanasia, communication skills and how to support bereaved pet owners.
Anyone completing the elearning course will be able to choose which classes to complete and where and when to complete them. People can complete their studies on a mobile, tablet or desktop computer and as each course saves your progress, you can stop and start your study so that you can complete it when it is convenient for you. Everyone that completes the course will be able to claim CPD points.
More information on our elearning solution will be available early next year.
