Today PetsApp announces its latest funding round of $4.4m 🎊

Today, we are excited to announce our $4.4M seed round of funding to accelerate our mission of empowering veterinary teams! 💪 🐕

We raised $4.4M with venture capital firm Point Nine Capital, and support from Adjacent, GFC, Market One Capital, as well as angel investors including Todd & Rahul’s Angel Fund (Superhuman CEO Rahul Vohra and Eventjoy founder Todd Goldberg), Carlos Gonzales Cadenas (Index), Matt Robinson (founder and CEO of Nested) and Ronen Given (founder and CEO of Rekki).

PetsApp CEO Thom Jenkins says “There are a mass of companies trying to disrupt veterinary clinics. That’s not us. At PetsApp we believe in the place of the local veterinary clinic at the heart of the community. As such, the goal of PetsApp is to digitally augment rather than digitally replace the local veterinary team. Allowing joined up online-to-offline interactions that work for pets, pets owners, and veterinary teams.”

PetsApp product shots

The whole pack and product here at PetsApp showed its true potential during lockdown when vets could only see urgent cases in person. A backlog of routine procedures then meant clinics were stretched beyond capacity. The potential of PetsApp for prioritising owner queries and giving vets control over their own workflows and revenue meant that, with only a few months on the market, PetsApp became the engagement platform of choice for over 350+ clinics.

Will Monk and Thom Jenkins PetsApp

PetsApp was developed by Thom Jenkins and Will Monk, who brought years of experience as a tech-lead turning data into user-friendly interfaces on apps such as The Trainline.

Our ambition is to create a platform that avoided the pitfalls of previous software for clinics and provides simple and intuitive solutions to complex problems.

To date, we have:

  • Helped over 250,000 pets, with over 650,000+ virtual care interactions
  • Processed over $5M in veterinary clinic payments
  • Received over 11,000 reviews on the App Store
  • Achieved a 4.9/5 rating, making it the top veterinary app in the U.K. and Ireland
  • 4.9/5 star rating on Capterra

Thom says, “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.”

Jordanne Turley, Marketing & Referrals Manager at Lime Trees Vets, a veterinary clinic in Stoke-on-Trent, says, “A great feature is being able to take payments which makes a seamless transition between the vet or nurse talking to the client and paying for treatment. We can also share documents with owners such as blood results or even a photo of their pet who is an inpatient.”

Ricardo Sequerra Amram from Point Nine says, “There’s no one pet owners trust more with their pet’s health than their vet. With PetsApp, vet clinics build closer relationships with owners while doing their jobs more effectively. Backing Thom and Will with their unique level of sector insight combined with consumers’ increased expectations to interact digitally makes PetsApp an incredible opportunity to transform an entire market.
