ABOUT Us

TeleVet was founded in 2015 and spent the majority of our first year researching veterinary healthcare by chatting with vets and pet owners. What we found was surprising.

Veterinarians are receiving texts, emails, and phone calls regularly from friends and family wanting to know how to help their pets. Since vets are awesome, they often respond to these with how best to help. Unfortunately, these interactions are unmanaged, not monetized, and lacking records.

On the other side, pet owners today now expect app services that can provide them with convenience straight from their mobile device (Uber! Teladoc! PayPal!). Without mobile services, pet owners are becoming increasingly frustrated when their pet is sick or injured leading them to Dr. Google for healthcare. 

Realizing these challenges, we found an opportunity to better connect pets with their vets in a convenient and exciting way through our remote healthcare application, TeleVet.

Our team is comprised of veterinarians and technology geeks with a mission to make animal healthcare convenient, affordable, and more widely available.

We are committed to continually improving our customer experience through ongoing product innovation and outstanding service and support. We appreciate your interest in TeleVet and invite you to contact us to learn more!
