Pawssum provides pet owners across Australia
easy and convenient access to vet services
in the comfort of their homes,
from local and trusted vet partners.
Founded by Guy Sharabi and Barry Green in 2016, the idea was inspired by a friend who had a sick pet at home with her son, with no available vets in the area to make a house visit. Pawssum was then launched with the mission to provide pet owners affordable, available and accessible home vet services.
To date Pawssum vets have serviced over 5500 pets at home with over 130 vet partners across Australia.
