Vet On Demand has launched a pet health app that offers a real-time visual veterinary consultations for dogs and cats.

The service will be delivered to users through a subscription-based model allowing for more convenient pet care. Users can subscribe to Vet On Demand via any iOS or Android device, save preferred veterinarians to contact in the future and keep a call history with notes and digital health records.

Under the direction of Dr. Phil Baxter, chief veterinary officer, the collective group of veterinarians is available 24/7 and represents 16 states with more being added continually. Users in all 50 states have access to these veterinarians and can contact them when they are online with the touch of a button. Users have the choice to be connected to any available veterinarian or they can save their favorite vets and call them back any time they have a follow up question or concern.

“We’re not looking to replace in-person veterinary visits with our consultations, but do want to save parents from the dreaded ‘Dr. Google’ and encourage proactivity when it comes to questions about their pets’ health,” said Mason Revelette, co-founder of Vet On Demand.

Subscribers can pay a fee for a single use, 10-minute veterinary consultation. For repeat users, there are opportunities to prepay for two, five or ten calls per month. The higher subscription offer is geared towards owners of multiple pets or pet walkers, pet sitters and  pet boarders who care for other people’s animals and want to have the peace of mind associated with a vet that is just a video call away.
