New site makes vet housecalls easier in Tampa Bay Area

VetPronto promises convenience, price transparency

TAMPA, Fla. - More than ever, pets are treated as family members, which means a growing dedication to keep pets healthy with regular vet visits.

Such dedication, however, can be a challenge for people with busy schedules or limited transportation options.

Now, a Tampa Bay Area veterinarian has teamed up with a new online site that makes it easy to schedule a house visit by a vet, and just as easier to predict what your bill will be at the end.

Through VetPronto.com, Tampa Bay Area pet owners can request a visit from veterinarian Dr. Glenn Cherry, who has been making house calls in the Tampa Bay Area for many years.

Dr. Cherry teamed with VetPronto to make it even easier for pet owners to book his services. VetPronto is a San Francisco-based company that has scheduled thousands of home visits on the West Coast since the site launched in 2014. The site is looking to expand and connect with other veterinarians in the Tampa Bay area to join them as well.

VetPronto also recently launched an "Artificial Intelligence" chat bot that helps pet owners determine if they should see a vet. If a pet owner is noticing symptoms, they just answer some of the bot's questions and their artificial intelligence algorithms will determine if the symptoms warrant a vet visit, or if the pet owner can take a 'wait and see' approach.

What's more, the pricing on the website is very transparent, and competitive.
