The Vester for Veterinarians app is compatible with Android and iOS devices.
A new mobile app from Vetter offers veterinary professionals an alternative way to treat patients. The Vetster for Veterinarians app, compatible with Android and iOS devices, is an extension of the company’s fast-growing telehealth and pet care market business and complements its existing web app. The new app is available to practicing veterinarians on Vetster through the App Store and Google Play Store.1
“Vetster develops the solutions veterinarians need to practice virtually, on their terms,” said Mark Bordo, CEO and co-founder of Vetster.com, in an organizational statement. “Our new mobile app is another way to provide veterinary professionals with a flexible platform to connect with pet parents between appointments, on the go between clients, or from the comfort of home. With just a few clicks on their mobile phone, veterinarians connect with pet owners with excellent video quality and easy-to-use scheduling and tracking features.
A rise in pet adoption combined with a shortage of veterinary labor expected to continue through at least 2040 has caused many vets to look for other ways to meet demand, while improving their work-life balance.2 Filling a gap in the market, the new platform gives veterinarians the ability to determine where, when and how they practice, according to Vetster. Vetster veterinarians use the platform to provide teletriage, treat elective cases, and provide follow-up appointments, while offering proactive and preventative health care plans to pet owners.1
According to the company, many veterinary professionals using Vetster supplement their income and provide student debt relief.1 “Vetster helps overcome both the barrier to access and the overwhelming demand for veterinary care,” said Jo Myers, DVM, a practicing Vetster professional, in the release. “For veterinarians who want to practice virtually, the Vetster platform offers a seamless user experience, with a user-friendly interface, high-quality video, and the ability to capture medical records within the app.”
Designed for veterinarians, the app offers the following1:
- High quality video calls from an iOS or Android device.
- Improved appointment management that allows users to set their own hours and suspend availability to accommodate unexpected schedule changes.
- Direct messaging functionality that allows vets to correspond with clients after appointments to provide additional support.
- Electronic patient medical records are captured and stored in the app for convenient reference by vets and clients.
- In the United States, veterinarians can use VetsterRx powered by PetMeds to prescribe prescription and over-the-counter medications that can be delivered directly to the client. In Canada and the UK, vets can use the built-in prescription pad to provide an Rx or OTC recommendation that customers can fill at their local pharmacy.
Veterinarians can join Vester by visiting his website and registering online. Once approved to practice on the Vetster platform, the Vetster for Veterinarians mobile app can be downloaded.1
