As a pet parent seeking an immersive pet care experience for Sammy, his new COVID-era roommate, our founder, Prem Sharma, had a wag-the-dog moment. The same conveniences he had carefully developed for several consumer healthcare initiatives were absent in the vetcare space.
As Prem eased into the care cadence his new pup required and worked through the learning curve as a first-time pet parent, Prem mused about a better way. Then sketched it. Then white boarded it. Then rallied former team members around a new-big idea.
As pet owners, who were also experts in out-of-clinic healthcare experiences, the outlines of the Petari opportunity quickly gelled. Digital pet healthcare posed quirky new challenges. Startup catnip. Before long, a next-generation vetcare experience had followed them all home and they decided to keep it.
The Petari vision for what's next — and what comes after what comes next — is an adventure that will unfold throughout 2023. First in the Cambridge area, where much of the team first became fast friends, and then beyond. It is a co-creation journey for you and yours. We hope you'll join us.
We’ll update you on next steps.
