'Vet24Seven' is a California-based company that connects pet owners with licensed veterinarians. When pets start behaving strangely, owners are often forced to decide if they need to visit an emergency clinic or whether they should wait things out. This app provides a quick and inexpensive way for pet owners to consult with veterinarians about the health of their animal.

Vet24Seven is an online platform that allows licensed veterinarians to set fees for consultations. Users can then arrange a 10 to 15 minute video chat with the veterinarian of their choice. Unlike other telehealth apps that are limited to text-based communication, Vet24Seven's video chat feature allows vets to take a look at the animal in question. Communicating in this manner gives vets more flexibility when it comes to making a diagnoses or providing further treatment.

While video consultations are quickly becoming popular among physicians, Vet24Seven demonstrates that the same technology can be used to address animal health concerns as well.
