Petzey is an on-demand mobile pet telehealth and wellness app designed to make access to quality veterinary care more convenient for pet owners in the United States. The mobile app offers on-demand pet health and wellness guidance through affordable virtual vet consultations. Petzey has now added Purina to its resources for expert veterinary content and tools. Through this partnership, members of the MyPurina program are now able to redeem their Purina Perks points for discounts on Petzey telehealth consults. Additionally, access to exclusive offers from Petzey are available in the MyPurina app.1

"Purina is trusted by veterinarians and pet owners alike as a company of pet experts who truly understand pets and pet wellness, and we're excited to team up with others in the industry, like Petzey, who share our mission to help pets live longer, healthier lives," said Nathan Marafioti, vice president of New Business Models at Purina, in a news release.1 "The MyPurina app brings the knowledge of hundreds of Purina pet experts and our trusted partners to the fingertips of pet parents."

Petzey is aiming to make veterinary care more affordable and accessible for owners who are currently facing challenges to access of care. To do this, Petzey has combined innovative technology with traditional clinical care. The company’s on-demand telehealth is facilitated by certified veterinary professionals nationwide, according to the company release.1 Virtual consultations on Petzey cost $20, which includes immediate answers to any questions or concerns about their pet's health.

"Petzey is designed for the new generation of pet parents who are looking for services that are not only tech-forward but also deeply rooted in genuine care and accessibility," said Ameetess Dira, chief marketing officer of Petzey. "Broadening access to affordable pet care helps pave the way for continued innovation and, most importantly, healthier pets across the country."1

To emphasize the benefits of telehealth, veterinary speaker, Courtney Campbell, DVM, DACVS-SA, stated during a session at the Fetch dvm360 conference in Kansas City, Missouri that, “For people who [have an] inability to travel, or people who have mobility issues, or individuals who have difficulty getting into the hospital, telemedicine provides that alternative for them. Particularly on rechecks. That's really important. You could even have credentialed veterinary technicians doing telemedicine consultations [online].”2
