Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Vetopia!
As the year comes to an end, we would like to take this opportunity to take you on a journey through the highlights of our 2023. From new product introductions on our online store to participation at pet fairs, and even our recent acquisition by a prominent Hong Kong conglomerate, this year has been nothing short of remarkable.

Pet Shows @ HKCEC
We were honored to participate in the pet exhibitions that were held in February and June this year. The events provided us with a fantastic opportunity to showcase our commitment to the pet community and connect with fellow pet enthusiasts. Our booth attracted a significant number of visitors, allowing us to engage in meaningful conversations, share our expertise, and gain valuable insights into the evolving needs of pet owners in Hong Kong. We are grateful for the positive feedback and support we received during the pet shows, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2024.
Animalkind Treats – New Flavors
Animalkind is based on clean, wholesome, functional nutrition, where every treat and every meal has a purpose, providing specific health benefits for your pet. This year we’ve released a range of new treat flavours, such as venison and deer antler, duck and lingzhi, and turkey with berries. We’re also really excited to announce we are now starting to export Animalkind foods to Japan.
Fundraising Efforts for Animal Shelters
We were also delighted to have supported various animal protection organizations within Hong Kong this year, including the SPCA, HKDR, LAP, and PUC. From in-person events such as the Dogathon in West Kowloon, Hero Dogs in Sai Kung, pet markets in Star Street Precinct, to online shopping fundraisers – we were grateful to provide help to dogs & cats in need.

Promoting Pet-Friendly Work Environment
During the year, we also started promoting a more pet-friendly workplace, allowing our team members to bring their pets to work. This not only fosters a sense of companionship and happiness among our staff but also recognizes that our pets are an integral part of our families. We also joined forces with Pet-A-Hood to advocate the concept at an event in Hysan Place.
