Umbrella AI Studio has proven itself a pioneer in using artificial intelligence (AI) for pet healthcare. Now, the company is aiming to transform the way pet parents access pet care with the launch of their app, Umbrella Vet. The app is poised to revolutionize pet care for dogs and cats by providing immediate AI recommendations for a wide range of pet care topics, which will offer valuable insights and enable seamless handoffs to licensed veterinarians. Umbrella Vet is part of the company’s commitment to making pet care accessible and affordable, ultimately improving the well-being of beloved furry companions.

Empowering Pet Parents with AI

Umbrella Vet is the brainchild of Michael Nabers, the company’s CEO, who grew up as the son of a veterinarian. With over a decade of app development experience in Silicon Valley, Nabers had a vision to create a platform that would enhance the accessibility and affordability of pet care. Considering the costs of pet ownership can range from $15,000 to $55,000 for dogs and $5,000 to $23,000 for cats, Nabers recognized the critical need to support pet parents who are dedicated to the well-being of their pets.

“One of the biggest challenges of being a pet parent is identifying problems and being uncertain about whether they require immediate medical attention or not. It’s also essential to understand what you can do at home to provide interim support,” explained Nabers.

Umbrella Vet achieves this by using finely-tuned AI models and proprietary data to provide specific and relevant pet care advice on any topic. This advice is customized to each individual pet’s profile and breed, allowing pet parents to track their pet’s health throughout its entire lifespan.

AI-Driven Insights and Real-Time Consultations

What sets Umbrella Vet apart is its seamless integration of AI into pet care, offering pet parents free 24/7 access to valuable AI-driven advice. For those seeking more in-depth care, a premium plan provides unlimited access, seamlessly transitioning users from the AI interface to real-time consultations with licensed veterinarians. The app boasts an array of features tailored for modern pet parents, including:

  • Immediate access to AI-driven insights customized for individual pets.
  • The ability to determine potential causes of symptoms or address common pet health concerns.
  • A comprehensive knowledge hub continually updated by the Umbrella AI team under veterinary supervision.
  • The opportunity for users to engage in real-time video consultations with licensed veterinarians.

The features ensure accurate advice and treatment options for specific pet issues. They also provide round-the-clock support that can enhance pet parents’ understanding of their pets’ health and treatment options.

Dr. Sandra Siegel, PhD, DVM, Chief Veterinary Advisor to Umbrella AI, shared her perspective on the app, stating, “Umbrella Vet aims to help fill the knowledge gap that many pet parents experience when facing concerns about their pets’ health. This platform has the potential to change the landscape of veterinary care and reshape the industry.”

Real-World Success Stories

Umbrella Vet has already made a significant impact on pet parents’ lives. One user, Landry Kiffin, shared her experience: “I was really concerned when my dog, Juice, started limping and licking his paw constantly. I turned to the Umbrella Vet app for help and was amazed at how easy it was to get advice. The AI suggested he might have a minor paw wound and recommended a virtual vet consultation for confirmation. The vet agreed and suggested an at-home treatment to start, which was great! Now, all of Juice’s health info is saved in his profile for easy access. I plan to use this weekly—it saved me time, was less stressful for Juice, and I felt better knowing I was helping Juice as quickly as possible.”

Expanding Possibilities with Umbrella Vet

Available on iOS and Android, this app reflects Umbrella AI Studio’s mission to elevate pet health and wellness. Founded in 2023, the studio plans to introduce more AI-infused pet care technologies in the near future. Through product launches and partnerships in the pet industry, Umbrella AI Studio is committed to making pet care more accessible, affordable, and innovative.

With the integration of advanced AI, Umbrella Vet is not just introducing technology into the equation but offering a transformative approach that amplifies human intuition with data-driven insights. This harmonization ensures that every pet parent is equipped with the best of both worlds: the innate understanding of their beloved pets and precise, timely guidance informed by AI. As Michael Nabers, CEO of Umbrella Vet, stated, “This is undeniably the future of the industry, pushing the boundaries of informed pet care to new heights.”
