AniCura was founded in Sweden in 2011 on an initiative by the Animal Hospital Foundation in Greater Stockholm.


The Animal Hospital Foundation in Greater Stockholm founded AniCura in 2011. The Foundation's mission was to create a platform for improved veterinary development through cooperation and best practice sharing as well as shared resources. AniCura was the first merger of animal hospitals in the Nordic region.

The Foundation’s two animal hospitals in Stockholm; Albano and Bagarmossen and the privately-owned animal hospitals Västra Djursjukhuset in Gothenburg and Falu Djursjukhus in Falun were merged, at that time under the name Djursjukhusgruppen (in English “the Animal Hospital Group”).
