Tong Junyong, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Pawlyclinic shares: “Indonesia has one among the biggest pet populations in Southeast Asia. Nevertheless, its pet care spending per capita is amongst the bottom, which indicates significant under-penetration and large potential for growth. As one among the fastest-growing web economies within the region and based on early positive responses from local pet owners, we’re confident that the country’s young and digitally savvy population will welcome the convenience of telemedicine for his or her pets.” Tong adds, “Moreover, we’re grateful to have received the generous support of our Indonesian partners as we do our part in assisting local pet owners in proactively safeguarding the health of their furry companions.”

Launched in September 2021, Pawlyclinic goals to not only ensure a stress-free experience for pets and their owners through teleconsultation but additionally enable vets to analyse the pet’s living conditions for a greater assessment and diagnosis. Each consultation starts from Rp100,000 per consultation per pet, depending on the rates set by each vet or vet clinic. If in-clinic care is required, Pawlyclinic provides in-app referral support, offsetting the teleconsultation cost from the overall in-clinic bill if the visit occurs inside 48 hours of the initial virtual contact. This enables pet parents to avoid being charged twice for a similar service.

“While we aim to offer best-in-class service to each pets and their owners, we would love to remind the general public that telemedicine is unsuitable for emergencies. This includes more serious instances involving lack of consciousness, large bleeding wounds, respiration difficulties, vehicular accidents, and falling from heights. These emergencies require immediate, in-person vet consultation. Nevertheless, our platform goals to repeatedly champion quality of life for all pets across the region by providing convenient on a regular basis access to a trusted ecosystem of qualified veterinarians,” said Co-Founder and Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Rachel Tong, who also helms Spring Veterinary Care, Pawlyclinic’s affiliate vet practice in Singapore.
