About Us

Our Story

Vets4u was founded in 2021 as an RCVS registered veterinary practice, with a simple vision to make veterinary medicines more accessible to pet parents. Emerging from an existing family business, Vets4u was born through 40 years of experience of supplying to governments and aid agencies worldwide with pharmaceuticals and healthcare products through Unimed Global. 

Our founding principle is to bring the high standards, efficiency, and regulation of the human medicine world to veterinary medicine. Vets4u aims to use its experience in pharmaceutical wholesaling to support animals at home and abroad.  

Our practical experience is intertwined with a cultural belief to love and respect animals. We believe in Seva, meaning “service to our community”, and especially serving those who serve others. The positive impact of animals existing with us is more evident now than ever, and we hope to use our platform to better understand, treat and care for them.
