A Swedish video platform that connects pet owners with vets on-demand has launched into the UK.
FirstVet is a clinic for the ‘digital generation’, providing pet owners with video consultations – via smartphone, tablet or computer – with local vets on-demand.
Since its Scandinavian launch in 2016, more than 110,000 Swedish pet owners have used the service.
David Prien, founder and CEO, said: “Through FirstVet we establish a natural first point of contact before assessing whether comprehensive physical treatment at a vet is needed. Veterinary care is not subsidised by the government, so people need to know that they can depend upon a service that is both reliable and cost-effective.”
Consultations cost £20 within normal working hours and £30 for weekends and evenings.
