ZumVet provides easy & convenient access to affordable veterinary animal healthcare through:
Modernising pet healthcare, to suit your lifestyle
Anyone who is based in Singapore and concerned about the health and wellness of their beloved pet(s) can use ZumVet. However, anyone below the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult during the video consultation.
All our vets must have a valid veterinary license from NParks/AVS and extensive experience in a clinical setting. In order to practice on ZumVet, selected vets undergo an onboarding process and ongoing education to ensure they are qualified to deliver consistent care via our platform.
ZumVet is accessible on desk tops and laptops, and mobile phones. Please ensure that you are connected to the internet. Where possible, we recommend using WiFi for a more stable connection.
You can visit our online consultation site at zumvet.com to book an appointment to consult with our vets, as well as access your pet's digital records.
You will be required to make a payment in order to submit a booking request through our platform. We accept online payments through Visa or MasterCard.
Pay only for what your pet needs
If you are not sure of what your pet needs, we recommend starting with a video call, so that our vet can guide you.
* The video call fee is not inclusive of your in-clinic consultation fee.
ZumVet adheres to a 24-hour cancellation policy. Any cancellations with less than 24 hours notice are subject to a cancellation fee amounting to the cost of the scheduled service.
Any rescheduling within 24 hours of the appointment time will be subject to a $10 rescheduling fee. For any cancellation or rescheduling requests, kindly email our customer support team at [email protected] with your booking details.
When we receive your booking, our support team will assign an available vet to your booking request. Once the booking is confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email with the link to join the online video call at the appointed time included.
In the event that there are no vets available for a consult at the preferred timing, our support staff will contact you to offer alternate timings when our vets are available, or (if alternative timings are not suitable or are too far away) to cancel the video call booking.
Booking an appointment* with ZumVet is simple.
1. Go to https://zumvet.com/
2. Click "Book Now"
3. Select your preferred service between a Video Call or Medication Refill
*An account is required before you can make a booking.
During an online video call, our vets may prescribe medication for your pet, depending on the condition of your pet. Our vets will walk you through the treatment plan during the consultation and you will receive an email notification with regards to your prescription within 1.5 hours from the end of the consultation. You will be required to pay the cost of the medication to confirm delivery arrangements.
Yes! When booking an appointment, you can choose to book a "Medication/Medication Refill". Please make sure to provide an image of a valid prescription when making the booking.
Once your booking has been validated, and we've confirmed stock of the requested medication, we will arrange to collect the physical copy of your prescription for our team to help digitise all the relevant information into your account. This is especially useful for easy repeat redemptions in cases where there are multiple refill rounds prescribed.
If you are looking to top-up a medication based on what your pet has taken before, that will depend on whether the medication needs to be prescribed by the vet. Our customer support team will be able to assist you on this and they will be able to direct you to ZumShop for medication purchases that do not require a prescription.
In the event that you do not have a valid prescription to share with us, and the medication is one that requires prescription by a vet, you would be required to book an online video consultation to get advice from one of our vets first, and it will be up to the vet to prescribe or not based on their professional opinion.
If you have purchased medication through our platform, you should expect to receive your delivery within your selected delivery time slots.
Our delivery time slots are 11am-3pm, and 6pm-10pm daily, and you can expect to have your item reach you on the same day if you are able to purchase before 5pm.
If you have purchased temperature-sensitive medication, our support staff will contact you to make the appropriate arrangements. The person receiving the package should have the Booking ID ready to present to the courier. Please be available to receive your delivery - in case of an unsuccessful delivery, there will be a $10 re-delivery fee. Do contact our support staff if there are any changes to the delivery address or the registered address in your ZumVet account.
All medications prescribed by ZumVet comes with proper instructions to guide you on administering/applying the medication correctly. If further clarification is needed, you may contact our customer service hotline for assistance.
You can request a medication refill for prescription only and over-the-counter items through ZumVet. A valid prescription will be required to process prescription only items. If you don't have one, you can book a video consult with one of our vets to approve your refill request.
We have a variety of heartworm preventatives such as Nexgard Spectra and Heartgard. You are now able to purchase them via our official e-commerce store, ZumShop and arrange for them to be delivered to you! Just note that our customer support team will be in touch to share a questionnaire with you that you would need to complete to ensure that the heartworm preventatives will be safe for your dog's consumption. Once our vets approve the heartworm preventative request, we will then proceed to arrange delivery accordingly for you!
In the event that you are not sure if your pet should continue on heartworm prevention, we highly recommend speaking to one of our vets via an online video call.
ZumVet provides a wide range of medication to treat different pet health issues. The types of medication you can purchase will be dependent on the availability and the need for a prescription based on the outcome of an online video consultation with the vet. In the meantime, our customer support team are always on standby for you to check availability of anything specific you might have in mind.
Video consults are generally suitable for pet care advice and veterinary opinions for triaging general medical conditions, chronic disease management and behavioural issues.
Our vets are extensively trained on conditions that are suitable for telemedicine. If at any time during the call, the attending vet finds that further examination or investigations are necessary, they will advise you on follow-up procedures, which may include a visit to your usual vet clinic or an emergency clinic.
If you are not sure of what your pet needs, we recommend starting with a video call, so that our vet can guide you.
If at any time your video call is disconnected, please try reloading the screen and you should be reconnected to the call. If you are logged out, please sign in again and click into the video link in Active Bookings.
If the problem persists, please contact our customer support team via a call at 3158 3942, or via email to [email protected].
To ensure the best consultation experience with our vets, we recommend preparing the following:
- Your pet's past medical records
- A weighing scale, if available
- A treat for your pet to keep them calm and comfortable
- A well-lit area where your pet can be clearly assessed by the vet.
We would advise that your pet be present so that our vets can properly diagnose and prescribe a treatment plan, if necessary.
However, should you have a general question, our vets can provide advice and guidance without your pet being present.
A vet will assess your pet via teleconsult and, based on their professional evaluation, will be able to:
Our vets are dedicated to providing the best advice and it is important to note that not all conditions are suitable for treatment via a video teleconsultation. In some cases, our vets may recommend that you visit a vet clinic for advanced diagnostics or treatments.
Following each consultation, a summary of the assessment and recommendations will be sent to your registered email address.
If your attending vet feels that, based on his/her professional opinion, your pet requires further physical tests and/or treatments, the vet will provide you with a referral letter, which will be emailed to you after the consultation.
If necessary, either you or the physical clinic that you go to can contact our support staff via a call at 3158 3942, or via email to [email protected], to request for any past medical history regarding your pet that has been recorded in our platform. You will also be able to view it via your pet's profile under your account.
*Please note that for all referrals, costs incurred for further diagnostics, treatment and medication will be charged by the clinic. For referral to non-partner clinics, the usual consultation fee will be charged by the clinic during your visit.
ZumVet provides teleadvice, teletriage, and teleconsultation services with the assistance of locally-registered veterinarians in Singapore and Indonesia.
In situations where we don't have a locally-registered veterinarian, we can still offer safe teleadvice and teletriage services for consultations conducted overseas. This is particularly beneficial for pet owners in remote locations with no access to local veterinary support.
Our vets are professionaly qualified and experienced to advise on a wide range of pet health problems that include (not limited to) fur and skin issues, vomiting, diarrhoea, coughing, sneezing, wounds, allergies, ear infections, minor eye issues, as well as any general health advice you might be seeking for your pet.
However, if your pet is experiencing an emergency situation such as breathing difficulties, choking, motor accidents, seizures, etc, you will need to take your pet to an in-clinic vet immediately.
Our Zumvet team provides:
- Wellness exams (annual check-up for pets) + routine preventative care
- Home consultation + physical examination
- Blood taking
- Sample collection - fine needle aspirates, skin scraping, tumour impression smears, dermatophyte testing
- Administration of vaccinations
- SC infusions
- SC medications
- Wound cleaning
- Nail clipping
- Ear cleaning
If you have specific requests, do get in contact with us and we would be happy to assist you.
Please inform our support staff if you would like to reschedule your booking.
You can reschedule your video consultation with no additional charges, if you inform us more than 24 hours ahead of your assigned booking time. Rescheduling a video consultation less than 24 hours from assigned booking time will incur a $10 rescheduling fee. You cannot reschedule an appointment after the assigned booking time.
Unconfirmed video consult bookings (no vet assigned) can be cancelled with a full refund. Confirmed video consultation bookings cancelled more than 24 hours from assigned booking time can be refunded, apart from a 5% administrative fee. Confirmed video consultation bookings cancelled less than 24 hours from assigned booking time are not refundable.
All purchases are not refundable. Please ensure accuracy of your order before making payment.
Please note that our timings are according to GMT+8. If you do not show up or miss a confirmed booking, the services will be charged in full.
If you are late for your video consultation, the consultation will be considered as a no show or missed appointment. Our veterinarian may not be able to see you, as late arrivals will cause delays for our vets’ subsequent consultations. We reserve the right to charge for the service in full.
