The pandemic has increased the adoption of telehealth services and this is no different for pets. According to the American Pets Product Association, Americans spent $99B on their pets in 2020. Yet 81% of pet owners would not be able to cover an unexpected $5,000 out-of-pocket expense for their furry loved one. Pawp is a digital health clinic and telehealth platform for pet owners and their pets that connects them with vetted veterinary professionals in minutes, without needing an appointment. The company also provides an annual $3,000 emergency safety benefit for emergency vet services that’s included within the $19/mo subscription fee. Pawp covers up to six pets in a single household and the subscription providers coverage regardless of a pet’s age, breed, and pre-existing conditions. AlleyWatch caught up with CEO and Cofounder Marc Atiyeh to learn more about how the pandemic not only drove the demand for telehealth vet service but also pet adoptions, the company’s future strategic plans, and latest round of funding led by Lux Capital.
