This month we are happy to have Bettervet® Mobile Vet Care in our Business Spotlight. BetterVet® was founded two years ago in Boston, Massachusetts by Bruce Herzfelder, Carolina Goncebat, and Dr. John de Jong, Treasurer of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association, President-Elect of the World Veterinary Association, and former President of the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association). Dr. de Jong and his partners anticipated the need for a revolutionary vet care model – one that delivers veterinary services to pets in the comfort of their own homes.
Most pet parents know what a struggle it can be to visit the vet. Pets are susceptible to stress and anxiety which can exacerbate the reasons why they are visiting the vet. Common issues with getting pets to the vet include wrestling them into their carriers and into the car, and they may become fearful around new places and animals, especially rescue pets. At BetterVet®, they believe there is a better way to provide high-quality veterinary care. Their mobile veterinary team travels to pets’ homes, keeping them calmer and more comfortable. All BetterVet® veterinarians are licensed and Fear Free® certified. They are able to perform wellness and sick exams, as well as provide vaccinations, heartworm, flea/tick treatments, blood tests, and more – all without the need for pets to leave their homes.
Local BetterVet® teams also provide services such as orthopedic care, ultrasounds, microchipping, pain management, and allergy diagnosis and treatment. Appointments can be scheduled online or through their convenient app. Once you sign up, your first video consultation is complimentary or you can also choose to book a home visit instead.
Also launching this month is the BetterVet® Wellness Club, which helps pet parents keep vet care costs simple and predictable. BetterVet® Wellness Club has three different membership plans (Family, Premium, and Elite) to keep your pet on track with preventative vet care on a regular and affordable schedule each month.
BetterVet® currently has services in Austin, Houston, Dallas, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle, Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, South New Jersey, Brooklyn and more!
