This is a very bad acquisition. It will give Mars Corp. monopolistic power in a rather small veterinary market. Mars owns Antech Labs, Royal Canin, Blue Pearl Referral centers, and Banfield vet clinics already. The FTC's divestiture requirement is totally inadequate and is just a joke for Mars to laugh about.
