Vetic was started in August 2022 by Gaurav Ajmera (Ex-COO OYO and Ex-CBO Pristyn Care), It aims to provide pets with best-in-class medical care, and convenience to pet parents for all other pet care needs like nutrition, wellness etc. The freshly raised capital will be used by the company towards further bolstering technology, establishing state-of-the-art medical infrastructure, as well as the geographical expansion of Vetic’s clinic network across Delhi NCR and Bangalore regions.
Commenting on the Company’s vision and fundraising, Gaurav Ajmera, Founder of Vetic said, “Pet adoption in India is increasing at a fast rate, however, pet health care remains the biggest challenge for pet parents. The current pet healthcare ecosystem is plagued with subpar clinical and medical infrastructure with minimal technology adoption. Vetic believes that every pet should have access to the best medical care. We aim to deliver this through our network of tech-enabled modern pet clinics equipped with the latest medical infrastructure and experienced veterinary doctors. The latest round of funding will allow us to invest in building consumer-facing technological platforms and cutting-edge medical facilities.”
Vetic claims to have 4 clinics in Gurugram and plans to scale to 15 clinics across Delhi NCR and Bengaluru regions by June 2023. It recently launched an Android and iOS mobile app, which enables seamless appointment booking and pet health record keeping, first of its kind in pet health care.
In this space, Goofy Tails, Wiggles, and Supertails have also raised funds in the past couple of years.
