about us

the oliver story

who we are

we are a group of (mostly) humans with a shared goal - to improve pet care and pet ownership by reducing the friction between pet owners and care givers. our passion for great products comes second only to our passion for healthy pets and healthy vets. we fundamentally believe that our software can reduce the stress and burnout that is too often a by-product of working in pet care

we're one of the 23 million households that added a pet to the family during the COVID pandemic. the experience of pet ownership had been great, except for the part where ruby needed vaccinations, teeth cleaning, routine heath checks and the occasional sick visit to the vet. it was hard to schedule a simple appointment, and we discovered it was even more difficult for the vets to manage the appointments. we wanted to solve this problem for everyone—so we set out create software that was simple for pet owners to use, but robust enough to handle the ins and outs of every vet practice. In 2022 oliver was formed and set out to be the best client experience platform for veterinarians and animal hospitals
