Tell us about Vetster. What is the platform and who uses it?
How does Vetster work?
We have heard that many vet offices are closing across the country due to staffing issues etc. In your professional opinion, why is that and does Vetster help close that gap?
Is Vetster mainly for sick visits or should pet owners be getting periodic wellness checks for their pets and how often should they be getting them?
Can I see the same vet every time or will I be assigned to different vets?
What is the primary differentiator between Vetster and say other telehealth vet medicine platforms out there?
With the pandemic being an ongoing concern, do you see the future of pet healthcare being telemedicine or is there ever a time to go in and see a vet?
Can Vetster prescribe prescriptions for pets?
Where can one go to sign up for Vetster?
