BetterVet Raises $40MM to Expand Network

BetterVet's mobile service will be expanded in more than 25 U.S. markets as a result of the funding.


BetterVet, Inc., a full-service mobile veterinary network, announced today the completion of a $40 million Series A financing round. Alta Partners and industry pioneer Bruce Herzfelder, BetterVet’s CEO and co-founder, are co-leading the financing round.

BetterVet’s tech-enabled model enables a doctor and nurse team to provide world-class medicine to pets in the comfort of their own home. BetterVet’s “white glove” service elevates the veterinary experience to be warm, high-touch, and personalized for each pet and pet parent.

BetterVet currently has offices in 25 cities, including Boston, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. BetterVet will use the Series A funding to expand its presence in existing markets, enter new markets, and launch new services.
