PetDesk, a San Diego-based pet care communication company, raised $12m in funding.
Silicon Valley-based firm PeakSpan Capital made the investment.
The company plans to use this funding to expand from the veterinary industry into the pet grooming industry in North America. The players in the pet grooming industry usually focus on products like shampoos, brushes, clippers and grooming stations etc.
Led by Taylor Cavanah, CEO, PetDesk provides an online pet health management platform for veterinary practices and a free app for pet parents to communicate information about appointments, reminders, confirmations, health records, and other health concerns.
Over 1,500 veterinary practices currently use the company’s dashboard and mobile app to manage reminders and confirmations, online scheduling, targeted messages, online reviews, and loyalty programs.
