Fuzzy Pet Health, a San Francisco, CA-based subscription-based pet healthcare company, closed a $4.5M seed financing.
The round was co-led by Eniac Ventures and Crosscut Ventures, with participation from Precursor Ventures, SV Angel, Accelerator and FJ Labs.
The company intends to use the funds to continue expanding its veterinary services and geographic markets.
Founded in 2015 and led by Zubin Bhettay, CEO, Fuzzy Pet Health aims to make pet care accessible through in-home vet checkups, and by connecting members with vets at any time online, via the app, and directly mailed medications, supplements, and food.
The company has just released the Fuzzy mobile app, through which members get direct access to Fuzzy vets whenever they need it. Members can chat with vets in real-time, ask for diagnoses and prescriptions, and get recommendations for products and services based on their pets’ lifestyle.
The app is available to download for free in the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Fuzzy’s membership model enables vets to engage pet parents much more frequently and personally when compared to care delivered in a traditional clinic. The company’s all-inclusive memberships cover in-home checkups, medications, vaccines and telemedicine (care delivered remotely via email, chat or video).
The service is available in the San Francisco Bay Area, with plans to expand to additional cities in the U.S. in 2018.
