Opportunity for Veterinary Providers… Relief veterinarians can earn extra income between assignments…vets that include integrative medicine as an offering can provide a service for pets in need, many of which are difficult to transport…retired or soon to be retired veterinarians can still practice (a little or a lot), but on their own terms – set your schedule, rates, services and geography… and new vets can earn extra money to pay down student loans, or to help build personal equity. There is a path for traditional veterinarians as well – being in an office has some constraints. There are only so many exam rooms and only so many hours in a day. Building another location or an addition would be a significant capital investment. Instead, they can create a mobile presence in the community that increases their reach without additional investment. Vets can also leverage excess capacity by providing Home Visits for interested clients. This works out to everyone’s benefit.
Lower Stress Levels For The Animal / Patient – this was the initial motivation to create Mollycoddle. Two of the founders of Mollycoddle discovered taking their cat to the vet was simply an exercise in stress for her and them. See “Our Inspiration”.
Offering More Personalized Service – it’s what people want. In today’s environment consumers expect services to be provided in a way that fits their lifestyle. Mollycoddle is a platform that connects veterinary providers and clients in a way that today’s consumer expects. It’s simply how people live in the 21st Century.
Increase Referrals – clients may still have a primary veterinarian they utilize, and Mollycoddle is not looking to change that. If it is found that the pet needs care that requires more specialized equipment like x-rays, etc. the visiting vet will recommend they go to an office for a more in-depth assessment. If no primary vet relationship exists, the attending vet may offer to take them on as a new client.
It’s The Right Thing To Do – Mollycoddle isn’t a substitute for all types of in-office visits, but it can supplement those visits with care that may not otherwise happen. Sometimes it’s because it’s difficult to transport the animal, the stress is too much for the animal, or in some instances, the stress is too much for the pet’s human. Perhaps it’s just a matter of mobility, time or convenience for the human. We want all pets to receive regular care, including those that struggle to make it into a clinic.
