Fido’s story begins in 1970, with Brisbane vet Dr John Lamberth.
Dr Lamberth made it his life’s mission to improve animal welfare. He worked with the Brisbane City Council to rezone veterinary practices, getting them out of industrial zones and into the suburbs where they could be easily accessed by pet owners.
Dr Lamberth also organized a free desexing clinic with the RSPCA for stray dogs, inspiring his fellow vets to donate their time. In his own practice, he struggled to find medicine for his animal patients. Everything was either dosed for humans or had to be specially made by a pharmaceutical compounder.
This led to him starting Mavlab, Fido’s parent company.
Mavlab originally started out of a large shed in Dr. Lamberth’s backyard. The company has only grown from there, leading the way in quality and good manufacturing practices.
We bring those same high standards to the pet care products we make, so all our Fido’s products are of the highest quality. Mavlab manufactures over 250 products sold in more than 15 Countries.
Members of Dr Lamberth’s family have joined the company over the years, including his daughter, Terese, now CEO.
Fido’s continues our mission to provide exceptional pet care for all pet owners.
