Intro

The vets always suggest that pet owners take their furry friends to health checks once or twice a year. However, it is easy to forget the time, and they may also ignore this because they look healthy and energetic.

Question

How might we encourage pet owners to take their furry friends to health checks periodically?

Stats

I wanted to know how pet owners reminded themselves to take their furry friends to the vet for health checks and started a questionnaire from November 2021.

  • 60

    Pet Owners

  • 41

    of them took their furry friends to health checks within a week after seeing the reminder.

  • 14

    of them didn’t take their furry friends to health checks periodically.

  • 24

    of them are interested in the service about health check for their furry friends.

Who May Use the Service?

Min-An and her two cats, Seven and Eleven.

Min-An has been raising two cats, Seven and Eleven since she was an undergrad student. They are by her side whether she took exams or had interviews, and they are 10 and 9 years old now.

Basic Understanding

As the vets suggested, she knew that the health checks for old cats should be twice a year.

Negligence

Min-An didn’t have the budget for taking Seven and Eleven to health checks when she was a student. They still look healthy and energetic when 7-year-old and above. Therefore, she didn’t do so.

Incentive

Seven started to be sick this year. Min-An took her to the animal hospital many times and recalled what the vets suggested. One of her new year resolutions is to take them to health checks periodically.

Why Does She Use the Service?

Google Calendar, iOS Calendar, Fantastical, Things, Spark, and more. She has so many choices.

There have been a lot of calendar and reminder apps, and Min-An doesn’t need another one. What kind of notifications which she doesn’t expect to ignore? Billing notifications are one of them. Carrier Express charges her periodically, and she will get receipt emails.

Google Calendar, iOS Calendar, Fantastical, Things, Spark, and more. She has so many choices.

Making an appointment is available one week before the scheduled payment. It’s her commitment to Seven and Eleven’s health as a responsible pet owner.

Getting Started as a Minimum Viable Product

For Cat Owners

The families with cats are growing rapidly in Taiwan. The frequency which bringing cats and dogs to health checks is the same.

One Animal Hospital

According to the survey, most pet owners have their favorite animal hospital.

Payment by Credit Card

Recurring payment by credit card is mature.
