Companies team up to offer mobile pet health app with veterinary bill financing options
Reading Time: < 1minute
CareCredit, a promotional financing solution for pet care, and PetDesk, a provider of veterinary client communications software, have partnered to provide the first mobile pet health app with integrated financing options.
The PetDesk platform supports proactive planning through health reminders and appointment scheduling, and Two-Way Messaging and Video Chat extend access to care.
With CareCredit’s financing options integrated into the PetDesk app, pet parents can plan both their pet’s veterinary care and manage the cost. Pet parents can apply for the CareCredit credit card directly within the PetDesk app, which leverages patent pending technology by Synchrony called dApply. With nearly half of CareCredit credit applications originating online and via mobile, this new partnership allows customers to seamlessly apply for credit and receive a credit decision right away.
“As veterinary practices move toward a new normal, we believe there will be two major shifts in pet owner expectations,” said Taylor Cavanah, CEO, PetDesk. “Many will be financially impacted and looking to veterinarians for payment options to help them manage cost. Pet parents will also expect veterinary teams to continue delivering easy-to-use technology like health apps, telemedicine and touchless payment, which they rapidly adopted during COVID-19. Our partnership with CareCredit will help meet these demands to deliver a frictionless client experience on every level.”
