Founder & CEO
I started LOP & LOA with one vision in mind – to provide eco-friendly and cruelty-free pet products. This is how the brand name was derived which is to “love our planet and love our animals”. As a vegan, my hope is to live in a world that excludes all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty, and consequently, reduce environmental impact on earth.
Coming from Toronto, Canada, I noticed that no matter where you live, it is difficult to find a single pet shop offering quality, eco-friendly, cruelty-free and stylish products all in one place.
So here we are, embarking on this journey to be the brand that people would recognize and be the company that strives to lessen our carbon footprint, wherever possible.
As a start, we are focusing to launch a distinctive line of premium CBD products under the name Serene. My dog, Sushi, had contracted autoimmune disease a few years ago, and through extensive research, I had found out about CBD oil and its great benefits on various ailments. It had immensely helped ease Sushi’s pain and anxiety, and it still does with his current heart condition, which is one of the reasons why I believe in this product, and would like to make it available to our animals in need.

Co-Founders, Veterinarians & CBD Consultants
Being both practicing veterinarians and pet parents, our lives naturally revolve heavily around animals and animal care.
When we moved to Hong Kong from South Africa in 2014, we were amazed by the wide range of pet products available in Hong Kong and Asia, but we also quickly realised that not all pet products are made to an acceptable quality and standard.
It is for these reasons that we are excited to embark on this journey and are determined to bring reliable pet products, formulated with carefully, responsibly and sustainably sourced ingredients, to all other pet parents.
Our first product range of CBD is very close to our hearts. The use of CBD oil in pets is an emerging field of veterinary medicine and many studies are being published showing promising results. With both of us being Certified CBD Consultants, we are delighted to be able to educate pet owners and other Hong Kong veterinarians on the potential benefits of CBD oil as well as share new developments and breakthroughs.
