The US veterinary services industry was valued at USD 94.14 billion in 2018, but less than a third of this business is served by neighborhood veterinarian practices who employ 60% of veterinarian professionals.
LEAGUE CITY, TX, October 01, 2019 /Neptune100/ — CertaPet, one of the largest websites for pet parents, launched a new service to help pet owners connect with their local veterinarian practices. The new website, named Veterinarians by CertaPet, is a directory of veterinarian businesses. Practices are organized on the directory by their locations and the services they provide to pet owners.
According to the 2018 Market Research Statistics from the American Veterinary Medical Association, 73 thousand, or 60.8%, veterinarians were employed by private practices in the U.S. However, Marketwatch reports that almost two-thirds of the business is served by corporates, government agencies, colleges and universities that employ only around 11% of the total veterinarians working in the country. It is clear that the private veterinary practices have much room to grow their businesses.
CertaPet aims to bridge the gap by helping pet parents find neighborhood veterinarian practices using their phones.
The website comes with several tools to help pet parents conveniently connect with preferred veterinarians.
Search tools on the website help users find veterinarians in convenient locations and compare reviews.
Users are able to call the practice directly from the website for making appointments.
Additionally, users can connect with veterinarians over live chat. In most cases, an online veterinarian consultation can help pet parents avoid more expensive trips to the clinic.
Veterinarians by CertaPet is launched in New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix and Los Angeles. More cities will be added over the next few months.
Veterinarians are selected based on their popularity and accreditations. For more information on participating in the directory, click here.
