Dial-A-Dog-Doctor: Rover.com partners with VetLIVE

Rover.com isn’t just a place to find a reliable dog sitter anymore. Now, the Seattle-based online service that helps owners find lodging for their dogs is teaming up with VetLIVE.com to provide expert canine medical advice.

Rover members who opt-in for the service will have 24/7 access to the on-call veterinarians online who can provide advice and consultation for dog sitters.

“Our exclusive partnership with VetLIVE.com enables our 70,000 members to make well-informed and confident decisions about the health of their dogs, and those in their care, in the unlikely case that medical attention might be necessary,” said Aaron Easterly, CEO of Rover.com, in a press release. “This service is just another way Rover.com supports our sitters and delivers peace of mind to traveling dog owners.”

Rover, which launched last December in Seattle, is growing quickly. The company raised $3.4 million last April and has expanded to over 50 cities. Read more about Rover here.
