ABOUT US

Pets Corner was established in 1978 with an idea to support our growing veterinary business at the time. In 1984, we realized that there was an opportunity for the business to stand on its own and venture into distribution and supply of quality pet nutrition and supplements, hygiene, accessories, healthcare and other pet related products in Malaysia and abroad. Pets Corner works with key partners like Colgate Palmolive (US), Scarecrow (Japan), ROGZ (South Africa), and Aristopet (Australia) to bring the best pet products to pet owners.
