Partnering With Vets To Help Test Pets
A Message From ClueJay Veterinarian Cofounders
As veterinarians with decades of combined clinical experience, practice management, and ownership, we know first-hand the pros and cons of modern veterinary healthcare delivery. On one hand, the skills and tools we have to predict, prevent, detect, and treat is extraordinary. However, too many pets are under-medicalized. Banfield estimates that 75 million pets may not have access to vet care by 2030 (press release).
The reasons for this are complex. Ease of access, affordability, education, and pet stress all play a role in preventing pets and pet owners from pursuing the right healthcare at the right time, leading to low testing rates and more costly, reactive healthcare. Today’s pet parents are seeking more convenience and safety, more direct purchase access, more control of pet records and test results, and more cost transparency.
Tech-enabled, hybrid healthcare delivery models are evolving to meet these consumer needs and bridge the medicalization gap. If done right, these new approaches should empower pet parents to engage with local and virtual vets more proactively, and more regularly. That is our intention with ClueJay; to both expand and augment traditional and virtual practice models. By embracing innovative technology, logistics, and certified laboratory methods, ClueJay can improve testing compliance and drive engagement back to veterinarians for pet-specific advice.
