PetCoach, headquartered in Wayne, PA, is a health service platform for pet owners and the leading source of free veterinary advice. Ask questions about your pet’s health, nutrition, behavior, or any other topic, and obtain trusted answers for free from certified veterinarians and other pet experts.
Founders David Martin and Alvaro Jimenez grew up in Madrid, Spain and moved to America to develop this platform so that pet parents around the world can have direct access to “credible experts.” Recognizing the market potential for the platform and wanting to help the original founders make it a much bigger company, Brock Weatherup, a successful entrepreneur in the e-commerce pet tech space, came on board.
According to Dr. Christie Long, Chief Veterinarian for PetCoach, the company is “reimagining how vet care is delivered.”
Did you know that 35 million U.S. pet owners seek pet health information online every month, and 80% of them end up confused by what they find? PetCoach provides a trusted and reliable resource that makes it fast, easy, and affordable for pet owners to access information about their pet’s specific issue.
Reliability: PetCoach employs veterinarians, trainers, nutritionists, groomers, and other experts supervised by Chief Veterinarian, Dr. Christie Long.
Convenience: PetCoach provides a convenient yet private way for vets and their clients to interact outside the office, resulting in better patient care.
Stress Free: PetCoach is stress free because you can access reliable vet care from your own home.
Availability: Since PetCoach is a global, online service, their professionals are available 24/7.
Accessibility: As many as 23 million pets in the US live in areas where there is limited or no access to veterinary care. Because of PetCoach, these pet owners are now able to obtain preliminary advice from veterinary professionals online regarding their pet’s condition.
Even though a majority of people consider their pet to be a family member, says Dr. Long, many are not getting the necessary preventative care. Unfortunately, cats are masters at hiding illness, and over 40% of US cat owners do not see a veterinarian regularly.
PetCoach takes the hassle out of routine visits because it is easy to access reliable information any time of the day or night from the convenience of your own home. Most questions are answered that day for free. For those who may wish to have a more personal experience, there are several other options.
HOW IT WORKS:
The company provides pet owners with direct access to 24/7 through a free web and mobile platform to allow for one-on-one consultations. The service also provides an education center with articles, and inquiries from other pet owners. PetCoach transforms the way pet parents think about and engage in the care and well-being of their pets.
