PetDesk, a San Diego, CA-based app and reminder system that connects pet parents with care providers to manage pet health, secured $2.1M in Series A funding.
The round was led by Scottsdale-based Canal Partners. In conjunction with the funding, Canal Partners’ Todd Belfer will join the board along with David Paul as board observer.
The company, which has raised $3.4M to date, intends to use the funds to increase its sales, customer success, and engineering teams, expand its market presence and accelerate new product development.
Launched in 2014 by Taylor Cavanah, CEO, PetDesk PetDesk connects pet health providers with their pet parent clients through an app. Pet parents use the app to request appointments, coordinate prescriptions, remember to give medication, contact all of their pet care providers, etc.
Currently available for iPhone, iOS devices, Android phones, and tablets, the platform’s features include:
– automated well-visit reminders for proactive detection of potential pet health issues
– mobile appointment management with calendar integration and reminders
– instant access to vaccination and prescription history from your vet
– personal to-do list for daily, weekly, and monthly pet care tasks.
