Vet tech business agrees pet insurance collaboration
Leeds-headquartered vet tech firm, Vet-AI, has struck up a major new pet insurance partnership which will open up digital vet care to thousands more pet owners.
Vet-AI and Waggel have agreed a collaboration which will offer policyholders unlimited access to Vet’s-AI’s app, Joii Pet Care.
Waggel insurance customers can now benefit from Joii Pet Care’s 24/7 vet video consultations, as well as vet nurse
consultations and a symptom checker.
The commercial agreement forms part of Vet-AI’s partnership strategy, providing affordable and convenient veterinary care so owners can access regular, preventative advice which supports dogs and cats to live happier, healthier lives.
Vet-AI also partners with Animal Friends Insurance, ASDA Money and Purely Pets.
Matt Elcock, chief operating officer of Vet-AI, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to reach even more people through our partnership with Waggel, offering thousands more pet owners the chance to access high quality vet care at their fingertips.
“Pets are more likely to keep fit, well and healthy with regular professional vet advice and that’s where our vet
team can step in.
“We look forward to working with Waggel and our other established pet insurance partners to continually provide expert care for the health of pets across the UK.”
Waggel is a dedicated pet insuretech company with an online platform offering all-inclusive lifetime policies.
Designed by pet owners and vets, Waggel provides one comprehensive policy that includes dental care and protection when travelling abroad.
Andrew Leal, CEO of Waggel, added: “We are very excited about the new partnership with Joii Pet Care. As an Insuretech enterprise, we like to partner with providers that share the same level of technology ambition and sophistication.
“We look forward to offering Waggel members the numerous services that Joii Pet Care currently provides. We are even more excited about future projects that we are expecting to collaborate on with Joii.”
Joii Pet Care launched in spring 2019 to tackle the rising costs of vet care for pets by offering pet owners remote consultations with real vets and nurses, via their smartphones.
