TeleVet Closes $2M Seed Funding Round, Simplifies Telemedicine for Veterinarians

Sponsored by Businesswire

TeleVet, an online platform that connects veterinary clinics to their
existing clients, has announced it has closed a seed funding round of
$2M. The round is co-led by Dundee Venture Capital and Mercury Fund with
participation from GAN Ventures, enabling TeleVet to further invest in
key hires and product innovation to meet the growing demand for its
telemedicine platform and apps.

TeleVet is on a mission to elevate the relationship between the nearly
33,000 veterinary clinics and the more than 160 million pet owners in
the U.S. through seamless communication across familiar channels such as
texts, emails and video calls. Veterinarians often face long hours with
a variety of daily stressors. In many areas of the country, they might
be the only practitioner for hundreds of miles, putting extra pressure
on their schedule.

TeleVet is focused on alleviating these challenges for veterinarians
through a better work-life balance by protecting their personal
information and time, while still enabling them to easily provide care
and generate revenue for their clinic.

“Over the past four years, we’ve become extremely close to our customers
and the industry,” said TeleVet Co-Founder and CEO Steven Carter.
“Running a veterinary practice can be stressful. You’re expected to be
constantly available and always have the answers. We want to show
veterinarians that we don’t just care about your practice, we care about

Veterinarians can integrate TeleVet into their existing office workflow,
instantly receiving and scheduling virtual consultations, online
appointment scheduling, digital prescriptions and much more. Through
partnerships with Embrace pet insurance, Vetsource for home prescription
delivery and Covetrus’ practice management software, TeleVet gives
practice owners valuable tools to comprehensively run every aspect of
their office.

“We’re bullish on the pet technology space, particularly solutions like
TeleVet that serve both sides of the market. Pet owners have spent
roughly $18 billion annually on veterinary care in the last two years,
making veterinary care the fastest-growing category in Pet Tech,” said
Allie Esch at Dundee Venture Capital. “TeleVet will power the next
generation of veterinarians who are quick to adopt digital technology,
recognizing that revenue, retention rates and care can improve through
tech adoption.”

“TeleVet provides a modern, mobile experience for veterinarians and
practice owners,” said Blair Garrou, Managing Director at Mercury Fund.
“Now pet owners can communicate with their vet as easily as they do with
any other service provider. With more than 30,000 veterinary practices
in the U.S., there’s a huge opportunity ahead for TeleVet.”
