DCC Animal Hospital enters PetTech
As part of its continuous efforts to simplify veterinary services in the country, DCC (Dogs Cats & Companions) Animal Center, a well-known multi-specialty pet hospital in Delhi, has launched its flagship proprietary app “PetConnect”.
The app includes the first-ever comprehensive and trusted medical history database for pets, and demonstrates DCC’s efforts to improve pet healthcare by increasing reliability, accessibility and convenience of use, bringing it to the level of human health care!
In 2020, the global Pet Tech market was worth over USD 5.5 billion and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22% from 2021 to 2027. DCC has thus made its debut in the PetTech sphere, expanding both the nature and the extent of their services, with an investment of INR 80-90 million in the initiative. PetConnect, a first-of-its-kind pet health technology program, was developed based on extensive research and consultation with leading veterinarians to address all aspects of pet health care. . The organization expects word-of-mouth outreach to help double business and consumers through the improved connectivity, convenience and accessibility it provides. .
The app is packed with features like seamless appointment bookings, reminders and treatments, contactless payments and billing, an extensive and informative knowledge base, and pre and post treatment care instructions . Pet parents will be able to connect with highly trained DCC doctors through the app, and DCC prides itself on providing full transparency while focusing on quality healthcare for an enhanced customer experience and ensuring nothing other than the best for their dogs!
Until now, there have been no accurate and comprehensive medical history trackers for pets similar to those for humans, resulting in a lack of information and history on low-altitude conditions. , multi-step adoptions, previous medications and other issues. Having these records available, rather than just the immediate symptoms, could help veterinarians manage a pet more effectively by identifying and treating a relatively minor problem before it becomes a serious problem. As a result, DCC is focused on using technology in pet healthcare to streamline the entire process and provide owners with a one-stop organic solution for all pet healthcare needs.
Mr. Ohhun Kwon, when asked about the new service, said, “DCC is a leader in the Pet Tech industry in the United States. Covid-19 has increased the number of pet owners in India resulting in a booming pet care business. This means we need to rethink and reimagine the future of companion animal welfare and health to make it easier for pet owners and to provide the best care for our beloved pets. PetConnect is a first-of-its-kind effort in pet health technology, and we’re working on more technology solutions to help fill the gaps. We hope that by doing so, we will be able to provide considerable comfort and ease for pets and their parents.
CDC previously offered virtual telemedicine services to help pet owners across the country bridge the healthcare gap. During the Covid pandemic, pet parents and veterinarians have been able to use the company’s patented platform to receive ongoing veterinary care and support through the carefully selected and highly specialized services.
Additionally, DCC Petcare’s Gurgaon location offers state-of-the-art boarding, childcare and grooming services, providing much-needed relief to busy families. Climate-controlled rooms, professional dog handlers, customizable feeding plans (which can be discussed with the office manager beforehand), and other DCC Petcare boarding amenities ensure pets have a comfortable stay and without stress.
