Vet care app hits 200k pet registrations

Veterinary care app Joii Pet Care has reached a record 200 thousand pet registrations in 2021 and has revealed the top five common pet symptoms for the year

The veterinary care app, Joii Pet Care, has reached a record 200 thousand pet registrations in 2021 – the busiest year. They have also revealed the top five common pet symptoms for the year. 

Throughout the year, Joii’s team of vets and nurses delivered more than 1 million minutes of virtual pet care for pet parents. And according to their symptom checker, the most common symptoms during 2021 were:

  1. Vomiting
  2. Skin problems
  3. Diarrhoea
  4. Coughing
  5. Eye problems

The Joii app offers pet owners affordable and convenient access to remote consultations with registered vets and nurses 24/7, via their smartphones. It also has a free symptom checker and the latest technology to diagnose pets from the comfort of their home – reducing any stress for the animal and providing convenience for owners. 

Vet Dr Samantha Webster of Joii Pet Care said: “Our teams have once again worked tirelessly to provide expert advice, support and treatment for a range of symptoms during 2021. We’re often described as the ‘111’ of veterinary care, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed being able to meet and help so many adorable pets throughout the year.

“Pet ownership is continuing to rise in the UK as people have more time at home and we don’t expect that trend to end soon. We’re proud to be able to support so many pet parents 24/7, many of whom have been struggling to access in-person appointments for a range of reasons including COVID-19 lockdowns, periods of self-isolation or reduced vet practice opening hours.”
