An animal health expert says a growing number of pet owners are opting for “pet transport” to get their pets to the vet.
Pet Transport is the industry term for transporting animals on the internet, and it’s been around for years.
But this year, pet transportation companies are gaining steam.
Now, there’s a growing trend for pet owners to order a pet transport from an online company and then pay them through their own bank account.
“You can pay with a credit card, pay with an Amazon gift card, and then you get a shipping bill,” says Andrew Hirsch, founder of Pet Transport, which was founded in 2014.
“The fees vary depending on the type of service and what kind of service you’re looking for, and I’m not going to say which one, but it is quite expensive.”
That means that pet owners will have to wait a little longer for a vet visit.
“If you’re a regular pet owner, and you want to keep your pet healthy, you should be taking steps to make sure you’re getting the most out of your pets health,” says Hirsch.
And Pet Transport has a few tips for those who are concerned about their pets health.
First, they recommend using a vet who’s certified to help with pet health.
Pet transport companies are not veterinarians, but they do have a vet in the office who can perform an x-ray of your pet.
The vet also will need to have your pet evaluated by a veterinarian to determine what kind and amount of medical treatments are necessary.
The pet transportation company will also ask you to sign a waiver of liability, which states that the company will not be liable for any injuries that occur as a result of the pet transport service.
The waiver is also important to get your dog or cat to the veterinarian if they need to be checked out for a medical issue.
A vet will also provide you with the number of hours your pet can be transported, and how long it takes.
It’s important to note that Pet Transport does not charge for any veterinary visits, including x-rays, scans, or tests.
“We do charge a fee for some of these services, and they are for emergencies or for a veterinarian who is unable to perform an immediate x-vision,” says Jason Stroud, director of public affairs for Pet Transport.
“However, it’s really not something that we charge.”
“It can take up to a few days for us to get a veterinarian on site, and the vet will be in your area for up to three hours, which is all to ensure your pet is safe, well cared for, treated, and not hurt.”
In addition to paying for veterinary services, Pet Transport also offers other services, such as pet food and pet litter, as well as pet grooming and veterinary care.
“Our goal is to provide you and your pet with the best care possible, whether that means the same care for you and a companion animal, or we are offering a service to your home,” says Stroud.
Pet Travel’s customer service line is open Tuesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but Pet Transport recommends you call ahead if you want more information on their pet transportation options.
