How much does Airvet cost?
There are three options for virtual consults:
- Start an On-Demand video call: $75
On-demand calls have a flat fee of $75 USD and have absolutely no time limit on the call. This will connect you with the first available veterinarian who may or may not be your primary veterinarian. Your case will stay open for 72 hours during which you can follow-up by chat with the same vet who answered your call with no additional fees.
- Request a virtual appointment with your primary veterinarian: Fee set by your vet
The fee for a case request is set by your veterinarian. This option is only available if your primary veterinarian is on Airvet and is typically used for non-urgent matters. You can select your primary veterinarian who will call or message you back as soon as they’re available.
- Become an Airvet member
For just $35/month you can become an Airvet member which includes unlimited 24/7 video calls and chats. Rest easy knowing that your pet family is prepared for anything that may come your way.
By starting an on-demand call or submitting a case request, you are authorizing the payment hold until the case is complete.
Where is Airvet available?
Airvet is available in the United States and Canada (with the exception of Quebec).
Can an Airvet vet prescribe medications?
While we would love to provide your pets with the medication they need, there are US state and Canadian provincial laws that currently prevent us from doing so. Since these laws vary by state and province, and our vets are located across the US, we are not legally able to prescribe medication over a telehealth visit at this time.
Even though our vets can’t legally prescribe medication through a virtual visit alone, they will always be able to triage, support, and provide expert guidance and advice for any pet questions or concerns you may have!
What is the value in Airvet?
One of the biggest values in talking to a real veterinary professional is that you'll get information you can trust. Getting guidance and advice from a licensed professional typically leads to better medical outcomes for pets, and helps bring comfort and peace of mind to pet owners. In many situations, pet owners just need help understanding the urgency of their situation, and what the right options are for care.
When should I use Airvet?
Airvet is there for you anytime you have questions about your pet or need peace of mind. You can discuss anything from emergency triage, nutrition, and behavior, to basic health questions and general medical advice. If searching for answers from random people on the internet feels like a weird way to care for your pets, it’s probably because it is!
How can I update my existing pet’s information?

How do I remove a pet from my account?
Open the app and log into your account. Once on the homepage, select the "Pets" tab located at the top of the screen, and tap and hold the pet's profile that you’d like to remove. A message will pop up asking if you're sure you'd like to remove their profile - tap "yes"/"remove" to proceed with the removal.
How do I accept/decline an appointment?
Once your veterinarian has booked an appointment for you, open the app and log into your account. The appointment will show up on the home screen of your app; tap on the card to open the appointment details screen. From here, you can select whether you would like to “Decline” or “Accept” the request.
If you select “Accept,” a payment window will appear asking you to confirm the charge (you won’t be charged until your case has closed). Select “Confirm” (ios) or “Authorize and Submit” (Android) to accept the charge. Congratulations! Your case is now open and you are able to chat with your veterinarian.
If you choose to “Decline,” a window will appear confirming the action and asking for the reason you wish to decline. Simply select your reason and then select “Decline Request.”
