Dr. Kitika Chaisupatanakul, Thonglor Pet Hospital Founder & Chief Executive Officer, had a simple dream “to provide pet health-care 24 hours a day”. She sympathized with and understood the anxiety and hopelessness most owners must feel if their pet becomes ill during the night and they would have to wait until morning for treatment. As a result, on August 21st, 1994, she decided to open Thonglor Pet Hospital, the first pet hospital to provide 24-hour care in Thailand. Unknowingly, her customer-base began to grow due to word-of-mouth referrals, especially from taxi drivers who would recommend her hospital for emergency treatment during the night. Before long, Thonglor Pet Hospital became the chosen healthcare solution for many pet owners.
Building on its success, Thonglor Pet Hospital continues to innovate and improve their services, keeping in mind their customer’s needs at the heart of their developments and providing pet owners with the most comprehensive health-care solution.
