“Could one text save America’s pet owners billions of dollars?”
>> Americans spend $60B on their pets annually, but nearly a third goes to (mostly preventable) vet bills. Why? Pet parents are neurotic, but have no outlet to voice their concerns.
That’s according to Silicon Valley startup Ask.Vet [https://ask.vet/], which says all pet owners really want is validation—someone to listen to them, call their pet by name, and guide their decisions. By offering live text conversations with licensed veterinarians for quick advice, Ask.Vet (NOT ask.vet.com) is tackling America’s vet spend burden head-on while giving these pet owners peace of mind.
Here’s how Ask.Vet aims to save pet parents $16B:
>> IT USES TECHNOLOGY TO GET ULTRA PERSONAL
Ask.Vet doesn’t remove human interaction from vet care—on the contrary, its focus is human-to-human (vs. human-to-pet) interaction. And users aren’t limited to a single text—they can converse with a veterinarian until all their questions are answered.
>> IT GIVES YOU THE ATTENTION THAT VETERINARIANS CAN’T
Ask.Vet knows we’re all a little neurotic and could talk about our pets for hours on end. For a token monthly fee, pet owners can ask as many questions they want about their pets—no matter how trivial the query.
>> IT HELPS HUMANS CARE FOR THEIR PETS ALL YEAR ROUND—NOT JUST IN AN EMERGENCY
Most pet owners ignore their pet’s wellness until a crisis hits. Ask.Vet prioritizes constant attention to overall health. Each Ask.Vet query—no matter how trivial—gets answered within minutes, meaning a text could prevent bigger issues and hefty vet bills.
