I started this company because my dog was stolen when I was a little kid and we never got him back. I was sad to learn that despite there being numerous technologies that have been marketed and made readily available to pet owners since then, neither have had any noticeable effect and the epidemic has not improved.

One-third of all dogs and cats go missing in their lifetimes and nearly 80% are never recovered. The technology exists (microchips) to solve this problem, but the industry is fragmented, lacks standardization, and provides difficult to use products. There is no truly universal scanner and vets and shelters are reluctant to scan pets with multiple scanners. As a result, veterinarians do not promote “chipping” for pets and pet-owners are skeptical of being locked into a registration system with limited success rates.

In general, the veterinary field lags behind other industries technologically. Medical records and other data are fragmented and archaic processes such as faxing and phone-based directories make it difficult for vets to communicate with customers and develop a sales strategy. Peeva has developed user-friendly software to encourage vets, shelters, and pet owners to be more proactive in updating and reporting pet information. We plan to strengthen the relationship between pet owners and vets with live updates and reminders, increasing vet sales opportunities and improving pet health. This improved communication and sales pipeline for vets creates an enthusiasm for Peeva that other pet registries lack.

Software

Peeva has developed user-friendly software to encourage vets, shelters, and pet owners to be more proactive in updating and reporting pet information. We plan to strengthen the relationship between pet owners and vets with live updates and reminders, increasing vet sales opportunities and improving pet health. This improved communication and sales pipeline for vets creates an enthusiasm for Peeva that other pet registries lack.

Hardware

Our universal scanner, coupled with a clouda cloud-based central registry (where millions of existing microchip ID’s are paired with pet medical records), and immediate pet-owner notification system will tie the pet recovery process together in a way that has thus far eluded the market incumbents. The ability for vets to evoke a pet’s complete medical history by scanning a microchip ensures more regular use and tracking.
