Bond Vet announced it will open its fifth walk-in and urgent care veterinary clinic in Garden City on March 1, 2021. Bond Vet opened its first clinic in June 2019 in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, followed by the Upper East Side in December 2019 and the Upper West Side in April 2020, and Chelsea in August 2021 amid the pandemic.
Bond Vet is a pet health company bringing technology-enabled veterinary clinic in New York, with a mission to strengthen the human-animal bond. Unlike most vet clinics and animal hospitals, Bond Vet provides both urgent and primary care, and offers online booking and walk-ins. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Bond Vet also introduced telehealth visits to broaden access to veterinarians, and initiated drop-off visits at clinics to minimize exposure.
“We’ve seen more than 16,000 pets since we launched our very first clinic, and it’s clear that there is consumer demand for a new kind of veterinary experience" said Mo Punjani, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Bond Vet. "In a time of great uncertainty, you can count on us to bring top-notch veterinary care and a smooth experience for your pet.”
Like the other clinics, Bond Vet Garden City was designed by Islyn Studio, a firm whose team has worked with the likes of Ace Hotel Group, Rockwell, Avroko and Creme Design. Designed through the lens of compassionate hospitality, the clinic features are consistent with the other locations, including dedicated exam and surgery areas, as well as a retail wall that stocks design-minded pet health products and treats.
“To date, we’ve built an incredible team of veterinarians, nurses, veterinary assistants and care coordinators with a new, differentiated approach, making us one of the largest veterinary employers in New York City," said Zay Satchu, Co-Founder and Chief Veterinary Officer of Bond Vet. “Through hiring, cross-training and our robust continuing education program, we look forward to training and developing even more extraordinary people to care for the pets we all love.”
Bond Vet is redefining the veterinary industry with a focus on four key pillars:
Culture: Prioritizing the wellbeing of its care team, Bond Vet has built a positive, uplifting, collaborative culture to provide a caring environment for both pets and their people.
Service: Bond Vet offers friendly care, walk-in and same-day appointments, and affordable access to veterinary doctors and specialists with convenient hours (open 10am-8pm every day, even holidays) and transparent pricing (first exam is just $15, regularly $95). We also offer dental cleanings and surgeries.
Design: The minimalist, clean space is designed with both the human’s and pet’s comfort in mind, with warm tones, comfortable furniture, soothing lighting, and entertainment(toys for pets, books for humans). Currently, though, clients get to appreciate that design only from the outside, since all appointments are drop-off!
Technology: The company has built a veterinary service platform that enables a smoother experience for both clients and staff, and they’ve built an app to provide access to medical care 24/7.
