Built for pet parents,
by pet parents and vets

We empower you to do what is best for your pet in between vet visits and teach you why it is important, how to do those treatments, and at what frequency. We take out all of the thinking for you and deliver true peace of mind because everything we do- we ensure is of the gold standard of care, the Vetted standard.

Our Founders

Maya and Ashley created Vetted because they were obsessed with this idea that pets need to get the best care and the only way to do that was to give their parents the tools, education, and guidance needed.

Our love for pets runs deep. Deeper than our love for some humans, but we won’t get into that here. 

We all grew up with pets and have pets of our own – and we want them to live the longest, happiest lives possible. Maya, our CEO and Co-Founder, started to home in on preventative pet health when her sister’s K-9 military dog, Fedor, was diagnosed with a cancer that was common for his breed. Maya was struck by the fact that her sister was a dog expert but had no clue what was going on with her dog’s health. 

If Maya’s sister didn’t know what was going on with her dog, how can the average pet parent?

Ashley, our CTO and Co-Founder, was all too familiar with the pains of pet parenthood. Her cat Neko came home from the shelter with a steroid prescription for her digestion issues, and Ashley did everything she could to improve Neko’s health…including paying thousands of dollars of vet bills with her entry level salary. 

And when they created Vetted, they never wanted other pet parents to feel on their own again.  Vetted is the best friend you call when you aren’t sure what to do…

Only this friend has a medical degree in pets 😀

With Love,
