LetzPet is a new online startup focused on delivering a true pet health message to pet owners and delivering a quality food product. We are a team of veterinary surgeons dedicated to pet excellence and with a focus on delivering accessible pet advice whenever anyone should want it. The motto at LetzPet is “Health,Expertise,Happiness”.

LetzPet is invested in delivering knowledge to aid pet owners everywhere to achieve a healthy, happy pet for all.

This can be as easy as sending a quick email or facebook message or even organising to have a virtual chat with one of the resident vets.
