FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - 9 July 2019


Home services and home delivery Mega-Trends merge in Australian first.  Pawssum home visit vets and PetScripts online pet pharmacy collaborate to make Aussie pet owners lives even easier.


Owning a dog or cat is one of life’s great pleasures for millions of Australians, and most understand that with those pleasures comes the need for occasional vet visits for both routine matters such as vaccinations and also for emergency or unexpected care. This is the main reason demand is rising for Australia’s $4 billion vet industry, which is growing at around three per cent a year (Ibisworld February 2019).


For many Australian pet owners getting to their local vet clinic can be a struggle, sometimes because of mobility or transport issues and sometimes because it’s difficult to fit a vet visit in during business hours.


Vet bills are also soaring, largely attributable to advances in medical and surgical procedures and the release in recent years of new drugs to treat chronic illnesses.


Busy lives and tight budgets are the reason that Australians have shown themselves very willing to follow two of  the global -consumer mega-trends of the 21st century - home services (think home massage, home doctor services, and even home doggie day care) and home delivery services (think Uber Eats and Amazon). 


And when it comes to pet care, Australian pet owners are no different, increasingly turning to home visits from vets and getting online pet pharmacies to deliver discount pet medicines to their door. 


Today two pioneers in those areas, vet home visit service Pawssum and online pet pharmacy PetScripts, have announced a collaboration that merges those two global consumer trends into one in an Australian first.


The PetScripts and Pawssum collaboration announced today, will make things even easier for pet owners. When a Pawssum vet makes a house call and decides that a prescription pet medicine is appropriate, at the pet owner’s request,  PetScripts pharmacists will process the vet’s prescription and dispense the medications and have them shipped directly to the pet owner’s home within a few days. The pet owner doesn’t need to find and visit a pharmacy which stocks pet medicines (most pharmacies don’t) and also benefits from PetScripts discounted prices and home delivery ensures the pet gets its medicine promptly and easily.


There is no doubt that home delivery and home service trends are here to stay, and the Pawssum/PetScripts collaboration offers an unparalleled pet care experience to Australian pet owners.
