whiskerDocs, a leader in providing 24/7 access to veterinary expertise via multi-channel, technology-driven telehealth and wellness services, is excited to announce the expansion of its leadership team and facilities to support the rapid growth experienced in the past 18 months. Spurred on by the overwhelming need for virtual access to veterinary support during the Covid-19 pandemic, the whiskerDocs veterinary team delivered over 90,000 interactions in 2020 alone. This growth has led to an increase in whiskerDocs coverage to over 6 million pets, the opening of a Southern California satellite office, and has culminated with several key leadership appointments.
Through its partnerships with leading medication, wellness, employee benefits, and pet health insurance companies, demand for whiskerDocs’ services has increased significantly. As pet ownership soars and consumer spend on pet services continues to climb, whiskerDocs’ cumulative total topped over 200,000 interactions with over 1 million unique touch-points. Its data-driven outcomes provide partners with deep insights into the valuable role virtual care plays in pet health and pet owner engagement.
