Vita (Europe) Limited has been bringing market-leading animal health products to the market since 1997. A restructuring in 2018 saw the introduction of the fast-growing Vita Animal Health division, with a passion for researching, developing and bringing to market innovative products for companion animals.
Vita Animal Health’s product range has been developed over many years, in conjunction with leading scientists and researchers, and has been rigorously tested.
Meet the team
Tara Evans GradDipVN RVN Head of Sales
I started my dream career in a mixed animal practice in Sussex in 2003. I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2006 and continued to work in first opinion practice until I joined the Vita team in 2018. My passion for the care and welfare of animals continues and I couldn’t turn my back on veterinary nursing completely so continue to work regular shifts at a local first opinion practice.
Like a lot of veterinary nurses I have quite a menagerie at home, I can never resist a cute face in need. My furry family include Mila my energetic, hyper black Labrador, Jules, Berba & Mia my three now aging cats, Beryl & Derek my rescue 3-legged tortoises, numerous fish and budgies. In my spare time I love spending time with my family, travelling and exploring new places.
Sebastian Owen Director
I grew up surrounded by animals so reading Biology at University was a natural progression. From there I joined Vita Bee Health, with responsibility for developing our honey bee health sales in Central/Eastern Europe. I’m proud to say that this is now one of our fastest-growing regions.
In 2007, seeking new adventures, my girlfriend and I moved to Hong Kong ‘for a couple of months’. Four fantastic years later, and now married and with a two-month old daughter, we returned to the UK to be closer to friends and family. Back at Vita, it became clear to me that there was a real need for a company dedicated to supporting veterinary practices by offering high a quality, research-backed, veterinary-exclusive range of products. Thus, Vita Animal Health was born in 2018 and, in the expert hands of registered vet nurse Tara Evans, has gone from strength to strength. I am particularly proud of our partnership with Vetlife, helping them to provide vital support at a time of increasing awareness of the mental health challenges within the industry.
I enjoy helping out with Vita’s honey bees at our apiary close to the office. We have a pair of rescue guinea pigs at home and – once the long-running black lab / cocker spaniel debate has been resolved – we’re excited about adding a new member to our family!
