Dr Evan Shaw, Aussie Veterinarian and FleaMail founder.
As a child, Dr Evan dreamed about saving animals. To one day become a vet and travel the world rescuing exotic, and our most beloved pets from injuries and illnesses.
So after graduating from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science and working for the likes of RSPCA, he did just that and headed to Africa.
This is Dr Evan vaccinating a Hartebeest, an unforgettable moment.
However, it wasn’t until he returned to Australia, that his life changed.
On April 24th 2016, Dr Evan almost quit.
- That day he had to euthanise 16 pets from preventable diseases.
- That day he had multiple families break down in his clinic.
- That day almost broke him.
In Dr Evan’s words: “I signed up to save animals, not kill them”.
Around 46,000 domestic cats and dogs are taken to the Vets each year in Australia for preventable parasite-related diseases – with paralysis tick treatments costing up to $15,000.
But how could this happen in the first place?
“I think it’s too hard to choose and too easy to forget” explains Dr Evan. “There are hundreds of flea, tick and worming products on the market today, and our lives are busier than ever, so protecting your pet can be confusing and easily overlooked”.
Counselling devastated pet owners always bought up the same reasons, not having the right treatments, or simply forgetting on the due date.
“I want to make parasite protection easy and affordable, so that no family has to experience a loved one dying from a preventable parasite-related disease”.
With FleaMail launching in January 2018, Australian cat and dog owners can now easily protect their pets, something Dr Evan is very proud of.
Better parasite protection.
