About VioVet Ltd

VioVet offer a variety of pet and horse supplies, including prescription and non-prescription medications, food, toys and equipment. They sell direct to consumers, both online and via telephone.

Founded in 2006 by Luke Cousins, the 16-year-old son of a vet and veterinary nurse, the business was initially an experiment to help the family’s veterinary practice. The company now employs more than 60 staff and distributes to thousands of pet owners each month, including a number of international customers.

Since then, VioVet has become one of the UK’s largest and most trusted veterinary supplies retailers, outgrowing two warehouses before settling in Luton in 2013. In April 2015, VioVet was acquired by Pethealth Inc., a Fairfax company based in Ontario, Canada.

Their mission is to help nurture the amazing connection that people share with their animals by offering professional advice, friendly support and carefully selected products for the health, wellbeing and happiness of pets and horses.
