From a humble beginning in 1972, Dr S Sivagurunathan who had a colourful tenure at the vet civil service decided to go beyond boundaries as he ventured into private practice by setting up the City Vet Clinic. Guided by his passion in veterinary science, key principles in ethics, animal welfare and education, he gradually evolved his single man clinic to a highly skilled referral hospital known today as the Animal Medical Centre Group of Hospitals.
In the early pioneering years of private practice, Dr Siva noticed a very distressing trend in the frequency of infectious and metabolic diseases among companion animals at an early age. He was convinced that the poor state of nutrition and the lack of education within the pet loving population contributed to the problem. He then set his goal to improve his knowledge base in pet nutrition as he believed the standard of care at that time was rather basic. Through his affiliations with the AAHA and continuing education to the vets, he was able to introduce new sciences and technology to the country.
In 1979, with a team of one veterinarian (himself), one veterinary assistant (Mr M P Raman) and one sales staff, Dr Siva established Pets Corner Sdn Bhd. His mission is to introduce the first wellness and prescription diets from USA ie: Hills Science Diet. His vision is to educate veterinarians and the public on the importance of a nutritionally balanced diet and its direct effect on the wellbeing of pets.
The pet food distribution network and the veterinary hospitals are today part of our parent company, Medivet Group.
Medivet Group was birthed through the efforts of its Chairman, Dr Sivagurunathan in 1972.
