Vetster is excited to be the first veterinary telemedicine platform joining Lumino Health’s network! Accessing quality virtual veterinary care is now available. With Vetster, Lumino Health now offers health care solutions and resources that benefit the whole family.
“Lumino Health supports the growth and expansion of virtual care to all aspects of health, including pet health,” says Sandy Delamere, Vice-President, Agility, Lumino Health. It became evident that pet care was becoming more of a focus for Canadian families during the pandemic. “Pet owners everywhere need veterinary services to monitor and treat their pets’ health. Vetster was a natural choice as a solution that benefits a broad range of pet owners”.
Lumino Health is dedicated to helping the whole family take charge of their health, including pets! “We also want the humans in their lives to enjoy the benefits to their well-being that pet ownership can bring. We’ll continue to build partnerships with pet health companies that can help us achieve this mission” Delamere says.
“Vetster will be tremendously useful to Canadians and we’re thrilled to have them as one of our newest partners,” says Delamere. Recognizing that virtual pet care helps people follow public health guidelines and stay at home during the pandemic, it “also helps those in rural and remote communities where pet care isn’t readily available”.
For most Canadians, pets are considered furry family members. This partnership rounds out the resources that Lumino Health offers to benefit the whole family - even those that have four legs! Vetster is excited to help families with any pet health concern they may experience through virtual veterinary services, a part of Lumino Health’s network to connect families with a range of health solutions.

If the last year has shown us anything, it's that we've all grown pretty attached to our pets. They've become our trusted sources of comfort and companionship, helping us make sense of the year that was and offering companionship while we've been stuck at home.
By the time summer arrives, we all want to spend as much time outdoors as possible—and that includes your pets. But, like anything, spending time outdoors can be risky business for your furry companions, especially with the increasing populations of ticks across the US. Ticks are tiny bugs that bite and then latch onto humans or animals. These critters pose potential health risks because they carry and can transmit illnesses to their chosen host. Keep reading for tips on how to prevent these troublesome bugs from doing any harm to your beloved fur friends.
Has your dog developed a strange cough? Or have you noticed a general fatigue in your cat that wasn’t there before? When your pet is ill, it isn’t always easy to know or understand what’s got them feeling upset. As the guardian of your pet, you are their voice and even seemingly small symptoms like a drop in appetite can be indicative of a bigger issue - something like heartworm.
Brace yourself, because summer weather is in full swing, and that usually means extremely hot, humid temperatures are a sure thing. While uncomfortable for us, extreme heat events can be life-threatening to your pets. Here are some steps you can take to ensure your pets enjoy summery days as much as you do.
