Swedish digital vet FirstVet launches in the US, supported by new €29.5 million funding round
FirstVet, the company that provides pet-owners with on-demand video consultations from local, qualified veterinarians, has raised around €29.5 million to support its launch in the US. FirstVet has raised a total of around €55 million since being founded in 2016. Telemedicine is rapidly growing globally and FirstVet is already the global leader in the telemedicine veterinary space. Despite the increasing number of pets and related expenditure worldwide, pet telemedicine is still a nascent industry. We will continue to challenge the old truths regarding pet health, and disrupt models that have been inefficient and non-transparent for years,” added David Prien.
