Who we are

Nutrition is our mission
We enjoy making your pets feel good inside and out, grooming your pet to look good and feel good along with sourcing the most nutritious pet food available.
We are passionate about researching the best nutrition for your pets. We enjoy helping new and existing customers to source the most suitable pet food for their individual pet needs, its lifestyle and its health. We believe in a more natural approach to pet nutrition, and would love a holistic vet to be part of our team in the near future.
We care about animals’ health, nutrition and wellbeing above all else.
This business is our life: we value each and every customer.
We value honesty: we will not sell a product that we would not give to our own animals. This does not mean we claim to know everything, it means that we will try our hardest to find out the truth about products.
We are always looking for ways to improve our product range – as each animal is an individual, what works for one may not work for another.
We stock as many ethically-sourced food products as we can.
Simply Pets has been established for almost 20 years. We are a small, independent, family-run business.
Every member of our team loves animals, and we always research the best approach for your pet and ways to improve your pet’s wellbeing in holistic ways. Years of experience in the business, talking with our regular customers and our suppliers, have really evolved our mission to provide the best nutrition for your pet and keep them healthy inside and out.
We are always open to customer’s feedback so we can meet your requirements and your pets’ needs at every step of their life.
