Pet insurer Waggel teams up with Vet-AI for digital pet care


Pet insurer Waggel has partnered with veterinary technology firm Vet-AI to roll-out digital vet care and insurance to more pet owners.

Waggel is on a mission to simplify what it calls “notoriously confusing, stuffy and boring insurance world”. The InsurTech, built by pet owners, wants to re-imagine the world of pet insurance with its simple and enjoyable experience, set to empower the new generation of pet owners.

According to a report from FinTech Finance News, Waggel has partnered with Vet-AI to offer policyholders unlimited access to Vet-AI’s revolutionary app, Joii Pet Care.

The partnership will see Waggel insurance customers now benefit from Joii Pet Care’s 24/7 vet video consultations, which usually cost £24 per call, as well as vet nurse consultations and an innovative symptom checker.

The commercial agreement forms part of Vet-AI’s partnership strategy, providing affordable and convenient veterinary care so that owners can access regular, preventative advice which supports dogs and cats to live happier, healthier lives. Vet-AI also partners with Animal Friends Insurance, ASDA Money and Purely Pets.

Matt Elcock, chief operating officer of Vet-AI, said, “The insurance market is fast evolving and we felt there was great synergy between Joii Pet Care and Waggel as disruptors in our respective sectors. Both are at the cutting edge of technology and innovation, underpinned by a drive to help pet owners conveniently access services online. Our missions are also very aligned as we strive to enhance the lives of pets and their owners.

“It’s fantastic to be able to reach even more people through our partnership with Waggel, offering thousands more pet owners the chance to access high quality vet care at their fingertips. Pets are more likely to keep fit, well and healthy with regular professional vet advice and that’s where our vet team can step in. We look forward to working with Waggel and our other established pet insurance partners to continually provide expert care for the health of pets across the UK.”

Earlier this year, PetMed Express, an online pet pharmacy, partnered with pet insurer Pumpkin Insurance to offer a high quality health and wellness insurance solution.
