Leeds’ Vet-AI has been included in this year’s Startups 100 – the UK’s longest-running index of disruptive new start-ups.

Vet-AI was founded in 2017 by technology entrepreneur Paul Hallett and experienced veterinarians Robert Dawson and Sarah Warren.

The R&D company develops solutions that support pets, vets and ‘pet parents’, providing the tools to access care more affordably and conveniently.

Hallett said: “To have made the top 100 Startups list for the second year is a huge achievement for us and testament to the hard work of both our clinical team and those responsible for the technology that makes Joii Pet Care truly unique. 

“The last few months saw demand for remote veterinary care increase quickly as people stayed at home. We have been treating thousands of cases online.

“It goes to show, with real evidence now, the majority of pet concerns/ issues can be resolved online. Affordable and convenient pet health care is now a reality through Joii.”

Vet-AI which is based at Nexus, Leeds, has gone through two rounds of investment and now boasts a 70-strong team of veterinary and technology professionals.

The company’s flagship brand, Joii, launched in May 2019 and is an app for pet owners to diagnose and receive recommended treatment for pets from the comfort of their home.
