PetMed: Veterinary Clinic & Dealer of Pet Essentials & Medicine

Multiple incidents of dog abuse have shaken sensible minds of India. Recent news bulletins are flooded with reports of strays beaten to death, poisoned or driven out of the society, as the citizens are conditioned to fear the stray dogs as carriers of rabies. Such cases of ignorance have indented the mind of Dr. Amrita Chaudhuri, Ph.D (Founder & Owner), who was a local animal welfare activist and was associated with multiple renowned NGOs, and hence she started her own medical facility for animals called PetMed (a brand registered under Annie PetMed Solutions OPC Pvt. Ltd., which is named upon Amrita's one of the first pets - Annie) in 2017.

With the help of veterinaries and volunteers, Dr. Amrita has been treating the wounds, providing operation theatre facilities, and vaccinating & sterilizing the strays to gripe against the abuses. After the animals are treated at the facility, they are either sent to the foster care homes or to arrange a legalized consent to get adopted by pet parent who can afford the cost of providing, as Dr. Amrita doesn’t believe in selling the animals.

Veterinary Clinic & Consultancy Services

PetMed recently introduced operation theatre facility with standard medicare processes used for sterilization and trauma cases, handled by registered veterinary surgeons. The center provides mobile paravet services throughout Kolkata for any emergency need of medical health. The team also tames injured stray animals with the help of consulting veterans, who extent their able hands to all non paid operations.

Any pet parent seeking veterinary help can visit PetMed facility, and those who require remote veterinary consultancy(in Kolkata) can contact the center through its help desk. Its efficient customer support team working 24x7 is reachable through calls or Whatsapp chat. As a part of its benevolent offerings, PetMed provides free of cost vet visits to the care givers who are unable to bear the cost.
Amrita asserts, “We tend to provide the best veterinary care facility to assist all animals through local animal caretakers, trained by PetMed & authorized by Animal Welfare Board of India who also take care of the rescue of wildlife animals found in rural areas by coordinating with local wildlife facility provided by State Govt”.

Quality Pet Products & Accessories

With time, Amrita comprehended that most pet parents rely on multiple sources to find the prescribed goods or daily needs for their pets, starting from online stores to retail shops. “Whether it is medication, accessories, food or supplements, many shops fail to cater them all at one place. On the other hand, local products fail many a times to meet the quality standards,” explains Amrita. To address these quandaries, Amrita has transformed PetMed as a one stop shop offering only branded products from companies like WAHL, BioGroom, Petkin, RoyalCanin, TOW, Farmina, Trixie, Pedigree and their professional range of products for canines, felines, rodents and other animals, under its umbrella

In the process of being certified, Amrita aims to expand PedMed to a multispecialty healthcare center comprising of diagnostic facility, ECG and operation theatre, apart from pathology lab in the near future.
