Yes it’s worth it!

Having a pet who is not well is extremely stressful because they can’t verbally tell you what is wrong.. being a first time puppy owner it’s like having my first child not knowing what is what and worrying about every little thing magnifying every scenario that it could be. Googling symptoms only seem to intensify this. Thankfully for me I stumbled onto this app at 3am in the morning after being woken up to my gagging 1yr old min pin. Not knowing if I should call into work and taking her to a 24hr vet for an emergency (only 24 hr clinic is 45min-1hr away) or if she was ok enough to wait till her scheduled appointment later that day I set up a 3 month subscription and made a video call appointment. After speaking with Dr Cohen not only were my anxieties relieved but I am also more confident going into Eleys vet appointment. This app was a genius idea and I’m very grateful it exists!

Outstanding experience!

Speaking with a Vetrinarian through the video chat was so helpful! Dr. Lu did a thorough intake and evaluation of our elderly Golden Labrador Retriever and provided me with the next steps that would be of the greatest benefit to Lucy. I HIGHLY recommend this app and the yearly unlimited visit subscription!! It will save a lot of money for us overall because we have access to a certified Vetrinarian 24/7 who will help us evaluate and clarify events for ER, and those that can be treated at home, or wait for an appointment with our regular vet. Dr. Lu was not only very knowledgeable, but also genuinely kind, caring and compassionate! If you have pets of any kind, I highly recommend getting this app and signing up for their services.

Recommend 10/10

I got the app today and used it basically right away. My cat has been throwing up and I was panicking (ugly crying included) but after speaking with one of the vets on the app I got a lot more comfortable with what to watch for, and what I can do to help him and my anxiety went from a 10 down to a 4. AND it was easy to set up the appointment, the vet was so nice and explained things in a way I could genuinely understand.
