CEO and Founder Joe Spector saw a need for timely, high quality care for pets and started Dutch to answer this need. As an industry expert in telemedicine, Spector is taking his learnings from HIMs to bring the same innovation to the veterinary industry at Dutch.

With more than 75% of pets exhibiting anxiety — and a growing vet shortage across the country — Dutch is easing the burden on in-person clinics by providing quick, easy, and accessible care to pet parents at an affordable price. The company’s current offerings include treatments for anxiety, allergies, obesity, fleas, and more with Rx solutions shipped straight to your door.

Since Spector launched Dutch in 2021, the brand has expanded to all 50 states, and has a team of more than 70+ veterinarians and specialists. Dutch is determined to make hard-working petcare easy, stress-free, and accessible to all with a convenient portal to access clinical-grade solutions to everyday ailments.
