Sharing is caring!

The newly launched first-of-its-kind mobile app will allow pet parents to connect with highly skilled DCC doctors, access detailed health history, and more, driving up business and customers by 2X.

DCC (Dogs Cats & Companions) Animal Hospital, has launched its flagship proprietary app ‘PetConnect’, with an investment of 80-90 million INR in the project. Owing to the enhanced connectivity, convenience, and accessibility that it offers, the organisation expects word-of-mouth awareness will help drive up business and customers by 2X.

The global Pet Tech Market was valued at over USD 5.5 billion in 2020 and is set to grow at 22% CAGR from 2021 to 2027. And so, with PetConnect, DCC has now made its foray into the PetTech domain, expanding both the nature and scope of its services.

Mr. Ohhun Kwan, DCC Animal Hospital

A first-of-its-kind initiative in pet health tech, PetConnect was built based on comprehensive research and consultation with renowned veterinarians to cater to every facet of pet healthcare needs. Among its many features, the app offers the first-ever comprehensive and reliable medical history and records database for pets. Having these records available, instead of only the immediate symptoms, can help veterinarians treat a pet effectively by evaluating and addressing a relatively benign issue before it escalates to a major complication.

It also unifies all pet care needs and processes from knowhow to consultation to treatment and more, loaded with features such as seamless appointment bookings, reminders, and treatments, contactless payments and invoices, and a vast and informational knowledge base, along with guidance on pre and post-treatment care. Pet parents will be able to connect with highly skilled DCC doctors through the app, and DCC prides itself on offering complete transparency while focusing on quality healthcare for enhanced consumer experience, and ensuring nothing but the best for their pets!

Talking about the new offering, Mr. Ohhun Kwon said, “DCC is pioneering the Pet Tech segment in the country. COVID-19 has accelerated pet ownership in India which has given rise to a fast-growing pet care industry. This means that there is a dire need to rethink and reimagine the future of pet wellness and health hereon, to simplify it for pet owners and ensure best care for our lovely pets. PetConnect is the first-of-its-kind initiative in pet health tech, and we are further building more tech solutions that will help bridge the existing gaps. We believe that through this, we will be able to bring forth significant ease and convenience for not only animals but also their parents.”
