Residents of the Russian capital are now able to book appointments in public veterinary clinics for their pets via the Internet, using a dedicated section of the portal of the government of Moscow.
Pet owners can choose any one of the 27 public clinics, stipulating the precise time of the appointment and the particular specialist they wish to see. Once an appointment has been successfully booked, they receive the clinic’s address and the appointment time.
New online services also enable Moscow citizens to call a vet to their home to provide first aid to their family pets. Online vet appointments are available not only for owners of cats and dogs, but also for exotic animal lovers, for example, owners of snakes or hedgehogs.
In Moscow, in addition to making appointments for treatment, pet owners can also use the government portal to select additional services, such as vaccination, grooming; chipping or pet hospital bookings.
The online service was developed jointly by Moscow’s Veterinary Committee and the Department of Information Technologies.
