About A Pet's Life...

A Pet's Life was born in 2006 and we're very proud to have been the first online pet store launched in South Africa. Offering a personal touch, A Pet's Life only offers products that we ourselves would use with our own pets. Our range is constantly updated and we always have our ears to the ground for the latest and greatest products available in South Africa. Our ethos is to provide the best possible product for each pet in his or her individual situation with their human family.  

In 2014, we were joined by Dr Gregory Simpson. This enabled us to offer more specialised products and morphed our growth into what we consider our store to be today - a Veterinary Boutique Store. We are not a regular pet shop and we do not sell any animals. If you are looking to add a new 4-legged member to your family, we encourage you to be selective about who you go to, and also to check out your local shelter or rescue centre as they often have specific breeds that need homes too.   

... And the people in it:

Dr Greg has always had a passion for animals. His favourite being dogs (starting with his first German Shepherd) but Dr Greg loves all animals. He has worked as a veterinarian for many years, mainly within small animal practices in South Africa but also a variety of foreign destinations. He brings experience of medical and health needs of our pets to the team, and we are very grateful to have him as a part of the APL Family. Dr Greg is the veterinarian from the South African produced reality TV series - Frontier Vets. >>> Email Dr. Greg <<<

Cathi Wiehahn is a Certified Veterinary Nutritional Advisor and Pet Healthcare Professional. She grew up on a horse riding farm in Noordhoek and found her passion there at the tender age of 8. When her beautiful cat, Thelma (from the movie Thelma and Louise :) ) got sick, she rushed her to the local vet for treatment and was offered a receptionist job by a friend with whom she used to ride…..that was 16 years ago…Phew!!! Cathi never looked back - and after 16 years of uninterrupted service in the veterinary industry, she prides herself in the veterinary product knowledge she's gathered and it’s her life’s mission to educate the public on how best to care for their furry family. Cathi only recommends quality, veterinary approved products and always gives professional advice, that can be trusted. >>> Email Cathi <<<

Amber Jordan grew up on a plot with a HUGE family of animals (a menagerie of domestic and farm pets including a special donkey named Peter). Naturally, her first real job was at a clinic - Chartwell Veterinary Clinic - where she ran things in the "front end" of the practice for Dr Ross McGregor. Amber single-handedly took on A Pet's Life in 2010 and is blessed to have had really special people join the APL Family since. From being the face of the company for many years, she is now playing a more "behind-the-scenes" role. >>> Email Amber <<<
