Dr. Augusto Andrade
The idea of giving a “veterinarian home service” began when Doctor Augusto Andrade, founder of “Veterinaria Vetzoo”, felt a lack of a professional service from door to door to all the demands of people’s pets and decided to start trying and giving it.

He discovered that taking the pet to the clinic for a simple check, grooming, shots, emergencies, etc. was provoking them with lot of stress, and as for most of the owners, a lot of inconveniences inside their vehicles when the animal vomits and defecates and the worst of all, a lot of lost time taking and waiting for them in the clinic.

This veterinarian home service has served clients for several years in Guatemala City and since then it is very well accepted at the point that it has increased the number of helpers to attempt the high demand of clients at any place.

On 2012, Dr. Andrade bought a small boat, a desire as an all time hobbie, with the purpose to spend some vacations going frequently to the splendid “Rio Dulce”.

After his many visits to the Rio, he felt the same feeling as in the city; there wasn’t such a service from “door to door” that attempts to serve the demand of pets in the area, but he knew it was going to be a dare because he decided to try and give it from boat to boat and from marina to marina.

He started to make publicity and offered his services to all the people that live on land or boats, have their vacation homes and marinas to provide for their pets needs.
