BOSTON (July 21, 2014) – The Pet Health Helpline, a platform that connects pet parents directly with pet experts and animal hospitals reached a milestone in July by processing over 10,000 pet owner questions. Owned and operated by Clicks Media of Wakefield, Massachusetts, the Pet Health Helpline is the nation’s leader in providing on demand pet related information and veterinary referral services. The direct to pet owner platform features a nationwide network of pet experts serving as a valuable resource on topics as basic pet care and health, training, and nutrition. Helping to guide pet parents through symptoms, problems, and other concerns the expert provides the requested information and they are referred to a local animal hospital for follow up diagnosis, treatment and care.
Clicks Media CEO, Andrew P. Laine stated the progress was another step in the right direction; “This milestone proves that there is consumer demand for a reinvented way to access veterinary information, services and care. Our platform connects pet parents with experts, but it also allows them to search for local animal hospitals within our trusted network to further the pet’s care. We are the first on demand platform in the pet industry that touches every step of the pet care cycle.”
With 82 million pet owning households spending over 58 billion dollars a year in the United States, there is bound to be disruption within the veterinary and pet industries. According to Clicks Media President and Co-Founder Dr. Christopher Meehl, they plan to be at the forefront of that change and innovation, “Pet owners deserve the best for their pet’s care. On demand access to useful information and referral sources are vital. Pet parents use technology to make decisions for their families. They are used to having access to information and services at their fingertips and it is our goal to meet that desire while encouraging quality of care for their pets. Every animal deserves the benefit of prudent loving care.”
