Vet24seven Launches Ask.Vet Community and AskNow Text Messaging Service

Animal Owners Can Freely Engage, Share and Get Answers From Veterinarians

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - December 15, 2015) - Vet24seven today expanded its digital platform with Ask.Vet, an online community and AskNow, a text messaging service. The Ask.Vet online community is a place where animal owners can network and engage with each other, veterinarians, and animal experts to get trusted advice and information and access quality resources to help them with the care, health, and well-being of their animals. The AskNow text messaging service is available for animal owners to text a single number, (858) 877-9797, to get immediate answers to their pressing questions from a member of the Ask.Vet veterinary network. 

"Our goal is to make Ask.Vet the number one destination for animal care questions, including behavior, nutrition, wellness, and health," stated Cal Lai, chief executive officer and co-founder of Vet24seven. "Unlike anything currently available, Ask.Vet is an interactive community where animal owners can gain instant access to credible information and communication with caring veterinarians and can connect with other animal owners like themselves."

Added Dr. Ed Blach, chief medical officer and co-founder of Vet24seven, "One of our goals is to create a more satisfying experience for animal owners than random Google searches. Veterinarians are joining Ask.Vet to share their valued opinions and expertise with their clients and other animal owners as part of a new model in client engagement. Furthermore, veterinarians can drive in-office visits, improve client loyalty and reach new clients by being more accessible from multiple platforms: the Vet24seven mobile app for video consultations, Ask.Vet online community and the AskNow text messaging service. "
