January 17, 2020 GMT

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Airvet, the leading veterinary telemedicine/telehealth platform, announced a new strategic partnership today with Veterinary Study Groups, Inc. (VSG) to be the telemedicine platform of choice for its members. With this new partnership, Airvet will offer its telemedicine platform to VSG’s 1,400+ hospitals across the country.

“We are excited about this strategic partnership as we look to help our independent veterinary practices further leverage new technologies and implement telemedicine to prepare to meet the ever-changing expectations of their clients,” said VSG COO Steve Curvey.

“We’re thrilled to partner with one of the most innovative and esteemed veterinary organizations in the country,” said Airvet’s chief executive officer Brandon Werber. “I’m proud to be able to provide VSG member hospitals with our integrated telemedicine platform that is inherently unique. Our focus is and will continue to be on leveraging technology to create new efficiencies in a practice’s daily workflow, and provide a seamless continuity of care for clients, all without taxing an already busy practice.”

Veterinarians and hospitals across the country are using Airvet with great success. The company, backed by venture and strategic investors, is also led by a team of prominent advisors, including Dr. Lori Teller - who is the first faculty member in telehealth at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences and an AVMA board member.

“Veterinary telemedicine is rapidly evolving, with various platforms in the field. Airvet was designed by veterinary thought leaders who understand the importance of building and maintaining relationships with clients and patients, without the need to acquire additional resources,” Dr. Teller said. “It’s easy for any client or practitioner to use and can be seamlessly integrated into the daily workflow. I’m happy to be personally involved with them.”
