HELPP Vet Limited provides a platform that connects animal and pet owners with qualified vets, vet techs and vet nurses (service professionals). It acts as a triage service that provides access to quick advice at an affordable price. The platform allows pet owners to assess which vet they wish to use before connecting directly via mobile or PC to discuss their issues.

HELPP Vet also acts as a platform for vets, vet techs and vet nurses to register themselves as a telehealth service provider. The platform connects them directly to animal and pet owners in need and manages all billing and invoicing on their behalf.


While we manually approve all service professionals on the HELPP platform, HELPP Vet Limited is not responsible for them utilising our policies or practices or determine whether they are in compliance or conflict with the applicable law. However, Helpp Vet manually checks that all service professionals on the Helpp platform are currently registered with their respective regulatory bodies at the time of registration.
