Making Connections with Pet Owners
We help facilitate overall pet health with our telehealth services that span a wide range of different departments. We can get our services to your customers quickly through telephone, live chat or video calls.
What can we offer?
There are millions of pets worldwide, with 13 million dogs, 12 million cats and 1.6 million rabbits and birds registered as pets within the UK in 2022; it was found that only 4.3 million of them are insured. Each one of them will need veterinary support in their lifetime, and although 98% of pet owners consider their pet as one of the family, accessing treatment isn’t always easy.
When a visit to the vets isn’t possible, pet owners want convenient access to veterinary advice and support. That’s why we’ve been offering 24/7/365 telehealth and digital vet care to pet owners since 2003.
Our mission has always been to provide convenient, cost effective and high quality veterinary advice to pet owners – and we want to help pet brands worldwide do the same.
Our pets vary in personality just like we do. When expanding our families, we like to ensure they are the right fit and get the best care they need. With over 95% of pet owners considering their pet to be part of the family, with 58% of millennials preferring to have pets over children.
Typically, millennials enjoy emotional and financial comfort wherever they can. Help give peace of mind to new pet insurance customers with our digital veterinary support. Relying on technology for quick and easy support, we can help your customers.
With pet insurance and guaranteed medical support, your pet insurance customers will thank you for the peace of mind they’ll receive in the likelihood of surprise costs or accidents.
Our pets deserve all the help and support they can get for the best chance at a long and happy life. With a vast majority of animal charity donations being donated by pet owners, it’s clear that we can give our pets a well deserved life with our support.
Consider offering our services to new pet owners and donors when looking for donations or allowing rehomed pets to find their forever homes. Our services are perfect for easing their new pets into their home environment and lifestyle.
With regular check ups available, new owners can be reassured that they can give their new family member another lease on life.

One of our veterinarians or veterinary nurses is available around the clock to speak with your clients. A qualified veterinary professional will handle all calls within 30 seconds: no holding music loops or call centres.

Live Video Chat
Customers are interested in convenience and flexibility first. They want to access services quickly and are looking for a range of options. Web chat is a popular communication method with pet owners who often turn to the internet first.

Our veterinary colleagues can initiate a video consultation to assist with minor injuries, skin issues, or other symptoms. We provide both one way and two way videos for ultimate convenience and comfort from your own home.
