Happy New Year to all our lovely customers and followers!


Wow! Where did that year go? The past year saw us being very busy Indeed. Our activities have included: (click the links to find out more) 

  • working closely with National Pet Month and winning their national award (remember May the 4th be with you? – great fun, and educational too!)
  • collaborating with Nature’s Veterinary – and we now have our resident vet, Dave Tweedle on board and IN STORE consulting twice a week and offering pet health checks, vaccinations, pet passports, MICROCHIPPING, nail clipping, etc.
  • meeting Theo Paphitis after winning our #SBS Winners award – what an inspiration that man is, too!
  • winning the PetQuip UK Independent Retailer of the Year award; launching on MyHigh.st – and we will be doing more work with that soon
  • going silly for money for Comic Relief
  • teaming up with Bath Bunny Rescue and we continue to support them with promotions, amazing cake sales (thanks to some fantastic local businesses for their donations) and fundraising events (raising over £500 so far)
  • holding various fundraising events for Bath Cats and Dogs Home and raising over £900 for them
  • introducing new fabulous foods and encouraging more dogs and cats to eat better foods like Pure Pet Food, Gentle dog food, Canagan and the new Natures Menu
  • meeting Tori the disabled service dog (and her humum Jana) who brought joy to all who met her – and she helped us raised a bit of money for Blind Dog Rescue UK
  • meeting lots of our customers’ pets by looking after them while their folks went on holiday
  • teaming up with Donna and Jo, dog trainers/listeners who have formed The Puppy Academy and Wiltshire Pet Care – we sponsored the puppy packs and prizes and look forward to working with them in the future.


We hope to do lots of new and exciting things in 2014 – including updating our website at www.notjustpets.co.uk. We will be introducing new foods and products especially to our new Frome shop and hopefully boarding there too – so your pets can come for B&B! We will have our usual Open Day events during National Pet Month and there will be some surprises too. We are looking at all sorts of ideas from puppy parties and crèches to grooming sessions and small animal handling days. So – watch this space!

We really believe – they’re not just pets, they’re family.
