As of May 2018 Queensland Rodent Fanciers would love to welcome Vetafarm as one of our club sponsors. We are incredibly proud and happy to have Vetafarm on the team.
Below is some information about Vetafarm as found on their website
Vetafarm is Australia’s leading innovator in companion animal health and welfare. With all products being focused on improving animal welfare Vetafarm prides itself on producing the best for your pet, be it a bird, reptile, dog cat or small mammal.
Dr Tony Gestier BVSc, sole owner and director of Vetafarm, has many years experience as a practising veterinarian as well as special qualifications in avian health (MACVSc) and pharmaceutics (BMSc). Under Dr Gestier’s direction Vetafarm has acquired professional production and marketing teams to serve the needs of all our companion animals and their owners.
Innovation remains the cornerstone of Vetafarm’s success. “All our products stem from a need to help the animal or its keeper” explains Dr Gestier, “as a veterinarian, I am always aware of the need to constantly improve animal health and welfare; sometimes the best way to do this is to make the animal care easier for the owner”. Since 1990 over 450 products have been designed and marketed by the dynamic group at Vetafarm.
Vetafarm operates out of three purpose built facilities within Wagga Wagga and surrounding districts. Administration, sales, marketing and the Vetafarm research and development team operate out of the Wagga Wagga based head office site. While the state of the art GMP approved pharmaceutical plant (license no 2239) and the food manufacturing facility operate in the suburb of Bomen, on Wagga’s outskirts.
Quality Control is integral to the production process at Vetafarm and the Quality Assurance group are charged with making sure only the best products leave the factories.
Vetafarm understand that the family pet is exactly that – family. The ability to have problems solved by helpful friendly staff on the phone is important to the philosophy of Dr Gestier and his team; all the staff are avid animal lovers with a menagerie of animals between them. This connection with animals shows when calling the staff at Vetafarm.
Vetafarm supplies products worldwide via an extensive network of distributors and resellers. Significant markets are Japan, US, Middle East, Philippines and Indonesia.
Due to their ability to innovate, the Vetafarm team are also used regularly by Australian Zoos to develop new ways to help improve zoo animal health. By using their vast knowledge of animal health needs, nutrition requirements and the technical ability to make unique products, Vetafarm are a valuable resource for zookeepers.
Thank you so much to Vetafarm for support a small but passionate club like ours.
