Today’s Veterinary Business Staff
Los Angeles-based Airvet has exported its telehealth platform to Canada, a nation of nearly 16 million cats and dogs and more than 3,000 veterinary practices.
The expansion followed the introduction of Airvet Assist, a single page interface designed to reduce phone time and improve the clinic workflow.
Brandon Werber, the company’s CEO and founder, called Airvet Assist “a one-stop shop when it comes to appointment setting, client communications, curbside check-in, live-video visits, doctor’s notes or dictations, and so much more.”
Founded in 2018, Airvet provides both a mobile app for communication between pet owners and veterinary practices and the in-clinic platform.
According to Canadian Veterinary Medical Association figures, the country had 12,921 licensed veterinarians in 2020, 3,301 veterinary practices, 8.1 million cats and 7.7 million dogs.
