Our Approach

The staff at Pharmavet are passionate about what they do. They take pride in their work and most of the staff have been in the manufacturing industry for a long time. The staff here have either completed, or are currently enrolled in and studying, a certificate III in process manufacturing. This ensures that all GMP (good manufacturing practice ) criteria are strictly adhered to.

Our Story

Pharmavet started only as recently as 2015. Whilst still practicing as a vet, Rishi saw an opportunity to make a bigger impact on the pet loving community, and to make an impact on the local economy by taking on a local manufacturing plant. To date we contract manufacture for 20+ local companies (including some well known major brands), and we have two brands own, where we can start to make a difference at the human/pet level.
