Peter Weinstein x Thom Jenkins·6 April 2023
Built by UK Vet Dr. Thom Jenkins, PetsApp’s driving force is his unwavering belief that the local vet is best placed to look after and serve the needs of any pet. However, often, any increase in patient advocacy comes at the sacrifice of the team. Realising that the power of the appointment needed to shift, he set about creating the app.
We cannot change who ultimately decides when a pet needs to come in and be seen; ie if a nipple is mistaken for a cancerous growth or if an aggressively ill patient’s journey in is delayed to avoid discomfort.
And it begins by capturing those 2 annual necessity visits a year and then layering in the needs of the patient through automated communication; text reminders to combat missed appointments and essential reviews, push notification campaigns during key seasons, social media coverage, home delivery for repeat orders. Lastly, wellness plans that allow for continued affordable healthcare that not only advocates for the pet through increased pet owner compliance, but puts the control of the ‘when’ and ‘why’ back into the hands of the veterinary team in charge of any given animal’s care.
