Cards and gifts
Introducing our gorgeous new mascots! They are all handmade by Anita's Kreativ Crochet and profits will be generously donated to LYPLYV. There are many more animals to choose from and they can be made to order. Prices start at only $20 and are available in Australia only (unless you are happy to pay international postage). We’d love to see these in as many clinics as possible and believe they are a great talking point and will get some discussions happening about LYPLYV and veterinary wellbeing. If you would like more information about getting a handmade mascot (or two!) for your clinic or as a gift for someone special, please click here to get in touch with Anita directly.
These wonderful cards are made by one of our own - Dr Scott Campbell and his children make them and share beautiful imagery from stunning settings. The perfect accompaniment to any of our gifts! Click here to order directly.
