Felix&Fido, a startup focused on transforming the pet care experience through its technology-enabled veterinary services, announced today the completion of a $4 million pre-seed funding round led by PSL Ventures.
The funding will be used to launch Felix&Fido’s premium, membership-based pet care plans, which will provide personalized and convenient pet healthcare through a combination of in-clinic, at-home, and telemedicine services.
The startup aims to bring innovation to the veterinary care sector, which has largely remained stagnant due to outdated service delivery models and traditional veterinary methods that are reaching a breaking point.
The company’s continuous care model allows for flexible care that can be tailored to the needs of pet parents, and also supports a virtual model for an in-demand veterinary workforce to improve productivity and profitability while ensuring a positive culture.
Felix&Fido’s membership plans offer a less transactional pet care model powered by preventive medicine, customized care, and vet team availability.
The plans include unlimited appointments with no exam fees, priority access to urgent care at the clinic, at-home visits by a veterinary nurse to triage and provide care, 24/7 telemedicine access, all vaccines, comprehensive wellness assessments, and support for pet insurance claims.
The company currently offers in-home veterinary service via its mobile nurse unit and will open its first clinic in Issaquah, Washington, in May. The company expects to roll out additional clinic hubs later this year. The funding round was also backed by Rover Group, and Felix&Fido anticipates additional funding leading up to the opening of its first clinic later this year.
