To support Vets in managing their practice,  the healthcare application in the veterinary, PetsApp has secured €3.9 million in the latest funding round.

There exist a number of healthcare apps that aim to assist medical persons in managing their practice. However, the potential of veterinary has not been tapped completely. The idea behind PetsApp is to allow the vets to manage their practice easily as well by providing integrated services on one platform.  With this idea, the company has successfully attracted investors in the latest funding round and raised €3.9M.

Point Nine Capital led the funding round. However, Adjacent, GFC, and Market One Capital also supported the funding along with a number of angel investors. These angel investors included Todd & Rahul’s Angel Fund, Carlos Gonzales Cadenas, Matt Robinson, and Ronen Givon.

PetsApp was launched in 2020 by US-based vet, Thom Jenkins (CEO) and UK-based software engineer Will Monk (CTO). The vital purpose behind this launch was to ameliorate the welfare of pets. Because during the Covid-19 lockdown, a lot of families welcomed pets in their homes. This led to a messed-up situation for the vets as they could see only a few urgent cases in person – creating a backlog of routine procedures stretching clinics beyond capacity, and causing worry for pet parents.

PetsApp enables vets to boost their revenue and manage practices by providing software to streamline communication, enhance the payment process and manage appointments. On the other side, owners can use the application to manage all pet-related things in one place.

Moreover, this healthcare application has been a success as it has helped over 200k pets in 650k virtual interactions. This has made PetsApp one of the most downloaded and used applications in the UK and Ireland. It clearly explains how technology is shaping the future of healthcare. 

Thom Jenkins, co-founder, said: “We wanted to help clinic owners and operators grow their business, as well as making care more convenient for pet owners. But what about the veterinary teams? What if they just saw this as one more thing to do? One more reason to miss lunch. One more reason to be home late. We wanted to build something that would alleviate veterinary burn out, not add to it.”

Moreover, with the new funding, the startup is planning to focus on increasing its international footprint and building on its products. Because there is no doubt that the development of healthcare applications is in trend these days.
