Meet Dr Evan Shaw.
Aussie Vet and FleaMail founder!
Like lots of Aussie kids who grow up with animals, Dr Evan used to dream about “one day” becoming a Vet and saving their lives. To travel the world rescuing exotic animals & our most beloved local pets!
So after graduating from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science and working for RSPCA, he did just that – and headed to Africa.
This is Dr Evan saving the life of an African Hartebeest.
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 parasite-related 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”.
Over 46,000 cats & dogs a year (120 a day!) are admitted to clinics in Australia for parasite-related diseases. Sadly, many don’t make it. Even worse – most of these cases are completely preventable with the right prevention.
So why isn’t every Aussie pet protected?
“I think our lives are busier than ever these days, and pet owners can easily forget” explains Dr Evan. Counselling devastated pet owners always bought up two main reasons:
1. Not having the right treatments, or
2. Simply forgetting on the due date.
Dr Evan knew there must be a better way and founded FleaMail. He now has a team of
