PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine announced today that it will collaborate with NetJets to offer its U.S. Owners access to quality veterinary care for their companion animals anywhere in the country.
To support this exclusive program, the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania commissioned a software development company to design and implement a program that allows emergency service staff to respond quickly to NetJets U.S. Owners. This software will be used in conjunction with existing data bases that have been modified to meet this need. The modified data base contains information on more than 500 veterinary emergency services in the country, including 53 emergency services employing board-certified critical care specialists. Now our emergency service staff can offer NetJets U.S. Owners immediate veterinary advice and referrals to the nearest available emergency care when they call from anywhere in the U.S. Other services include specialist consultations with NetJets U.S. Owners or their veterinarians, expedited appointments and a wellness visit at the Ryan Veterinary Hospital. The program covers dogs, cats and special species pets.
“We are pleased to partner with NetJets on this industry first program for veterinary care of companion animals,” said Barry Stupine, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Director of the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital. “It is gratifying to see that a company with NetJets’ excellent reputation understands the importance of the human-animal bond.”
“We recognize that many NetJets owners value their pets as family members,” said Richard T. Santulli, chairman and chief executive officer of NetJets. “NetJets is thrilled to offer our owners’ pets access to the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital, one of the most advanced companion-animal teaching hospitals in the world.”
