Dutch raises $18 million
Pet telemedicine service Dutch has closed an $18 million Series B funding round, bolstering its total funding to $43 million.
Established in 2021 and headquartered in Oakland, Dutch provides pet parents with telemedicine services, now priced at just $7 per month for unlimited calls, a significant reduction from its previous $15 per month rate.
Dutch offers a monthly or annual pet health membership, granting pet owners unlimited access to Dutch-affiliated veterinarians through video chat and messaging. Depending on a pet’s specific needs, Dutch vets may recommend prescription medication (where permitted) or non-prescription treatment options. Additionally, members benefit from free standard shipping on all products for up to 5 pets, with medications incurring extra charges.
The membership also includes free pet insurance – the Dutch Protector plan offers $10,000 of emergency insurance from Pets Best. This plan covers accident insurance for the first pet and offers virtual vet care for up to 5 pets within a household.
Bottom Line: Dutch operates in the space of the now-defunct Fuzzy Pet Health.
