The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Covetrus, Inc. (NASDAQ: CVET) who purchased shares between February 8, 2019 and August 12, 2019. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
