A letter from our CEO
Hi Greater Issaquah area. I’m Gavin Woody, co-founder and CEO of Felix&Fido. I want to welcome you to our still small but mighty Felix&Fido family.
Our mission is to reimagine the way veterinary care is delivered. As I’m sure you know, many people around the world brought pets into their homes during Covid to improve their own mental and physical health. The human-animal bond is truly a magical thing! Unfortunately, the veterinary industry is struggling with not enough veterinarians and staff to support pets and their pet parents.
As the son of two veterinarians and proud pet parent to our two cats (Amelia and Jamba) and bearded dragon (Cactus), I have seen both sides of the veterinary provider and patient experience. Along with my co-founders, Dr. Shlomo Freiman and Ian Ma, we knew there was a better way to both deliver care and improve the lives of our veterinary staff.
We are excited about building a new model which surrounds you and your pet with care. We call this “Connected Care,” which offers you the following:
- 24/7 access to our powerful telemedicine platform to help answer questions you might have about your pet’s health
- Convenience of an at-home appointment where our vet care team will come to you
- Our state-of-the-art clinic scheduled to open in the Spring, so be on the lookout for updates on that
If you ever have questions or comments directly for me, I want to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org. And you can always reach our care team at email@example.com.
I’m proud of what we are building and am grateful to you for trusting us with your pet’s health.
