During this difficult period of CoronaVirus, PetKonnect has launched a 24hr Vet on-call service PAN India to help pet parents access vets while social distancing. This service will be chargeable at a rate of INR 300 and INR 400 per call during the day and night time respectively, with a maximum call duration of 20 minutes.

To ensure pet parents receive the best in medical advice for their beloved charges, PetKonnect has partnered with leading vets including Dr. Vani jhaveri and Dr. Sailee Walavalkar to execute this service.
To regulate animal population, government authorities, under section 191(A) of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act, has made it mandatory for owners of pet dogs to obtain a license. PetKonnect’s BMC pet registration service enables all pet parents to easily register their pets’ from the comfort of their homes, while abiding with these mandated state requirements. Pet registration fees as set out by government authorities charge a first time registration fee of INR 105 for 1 year and subsequently an INR 100 for each yearly renewal. PetKonnect takes on this activity for our beloved pet parents for a small fee of INR 50 per transaction.
“To complement and support the efforts being made by not only the Indian Government but also the providers of essential services, we at PetKonnect have launched a Vet on-call service PAN India. We hope to greatly benefit many pet parents who can easily access best in class vets from the comfort of their homes as well as reduce pet related public visits made to vet clinics etc. We really hope people adapt to this service in light of the current situation in the country and stay at home.” said Devanshi Shah, Founder – PetKonnect.
Ruchita Avhad, Co-Founder – PetKonnect remarked, “Pet registration with local authorities is a commonly unknown fact amongst the pet parent community. The registration of pets’ boasts of many benefits such as ensuring your pet has been properly vaccinated and a better chance of being returned if your pet is lost. Non-registration/ renewal of a license may even lead to the seizure of a pet by authorities. Through this service we not only aim to raise awareness around the topic of pet licensing but also make it very easy for pet parents to have their pets’ registered through the PetKonnect app.”
