Rockin’ Pets, Rollin’ Vets is Closing Early!

Rockin' Pets, Rollin' Vets has decided to close its offering early, with a new closing date of November 5, 2020. If Rockin' Pets, Rollin' Vets is under its maximum funding goal before that date, it will continue to accept investments until the new closing date. If you've invested in Rockin' Pets, Rollin' Vets, you have the option to cancel your commitment until 11:59 pm CST on November 3, 2020. 

Cheers,
The NextSeed Team

Popular mobile veterinary clinic, Rockin’ Pets, Rollin’ Vets (“Rollin’ Vets”), is expanding to serve more clients in and around Houston, TX. Originally launched in January 2016, the unique and convenient model of care has generated considerable response thus far, with revenue surpassing $1.5M in 2019.

Founded Dr. Katharine Eick, an experienced veterinarian with over 22 years in care, Rollin’ Vets provides a convenient solution to traditional veterinary care. Transporting animals to and from an office appointment is stressful for both the pets and the owners. Especially for owners of multiple pets, a mobile vet is much preferred over the hassle of taking several animals in the car and managing them in the waiting room.

Rollin’ Vets offers the same complete animal care and treatment found at a traditional vet, aside from hospitalization. Clients can schedule a service and time that is most convenient for them, 7 days a week.  

Now more than ever, people are looking for more convenient choices that limit risky social interactions. Rollin’ Vets fills this need, with quality care for pets in a low-risk setting.

 

Rollin’ Vets believes that the best care for your pet happens at home. Pets are happiest and calmest in the comfort of their home, and relaxed pets allow for better pet care and less stress all-around.

Rollin’ Vets operates a full-service mobile veterinary clinic on wheels serving the pets and families of the greater Houston area 7 days a week. The goal is to provide exceptional care, while reducing stress on the pet and client by bringing the service straight to a pet owner’s home.


Pet hospitalization, though not provided directly by Rollin Vets, is also accessible through partner pet hospitals around the city.

Pricing is competitive and there is no additional travel charge within a 10-mile radius around the Galleria area of Houston. Each additional mile beyond this is billed at $5 per mile. Visit https://www.rollinvets.com/pricing for current price list.



When Dr. Katharine Eick launched Rollin' Vets, she knew it would address unmet needs she had seen in veterinary care during her whole career. Home visits are less stressful for all parties involved, less time consuming, and budget-friendly for multiple pet households. While some enterprising veterinarians have recognized the need for in-home end of life care, there are not many practices nationwide that have adopted a mobile-only, full-service model.  

Prior to Rollin' Vets, mobile clinics around Houston were offering part-time, minimal services and mostly operating out of personal vehicles. Rollin Vets is the largest full-time, medically equipped van clinic in the area. 

Due to the unique nature of the business, word of mouth spread quickly without any traditional advertising. Now, the business is looking to add another van to the fleet, on-board additional staff, and begin targeted marketing efforts to grow the business. 

Currently, clinical services and treatment provide the primary revenue streams for Rollin' Vets. The business plans to expand throughout Houston and begin franchising the concept in other Texas cities - and eventually nationwide.

Location Analysis

Rockin' Pets, Rollin' Vets operates in and around the Houston area. Due to the nature of their mobile business, their service radius is limited only by the number of vans and staff. The business plans to expand their concept into other cities in Texas, and through a franchising model, Rollin' Vets aims to eventually roll out service nationwide.

Dr. Katie Eick
CEO & Founder, DVM

Dr Katie Eick, Founder and CEO of Rockin Pets, Rollin Vets, is a 1998 Graduate of the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude and was the recipient of the Gentle Doctor award, given to the student who exhibited outstanding and compassionate patient care. Dr. Eick has practiced in Virginia, where she started and built a brick and mortar practice, Alabama where she did relief work, and finally Texas, where she worked in a no kill shelter in Austin before finally settling down in Houston in 2013. Having had the benefit of working in so many different aspects of veterinary medicine, Dr Eick saw a real need for at home vet care, whether it be for larger dogs that had difficulty loading into the car, for busy people with busy schedules, for people with multiple animals, or for CATS, who hate to ride in the car, and she recognized that this was a relatively difficult service for owners to find. So she decided to change that and in 2016 she launched her full service mobile veterinary practice, South By South Vets, now known as Rockin Pets, Rollin Vets, and she could not be happier! 

'It is so amazing to be able to offer not only convenient service, but service with so much less stress for the pets!"

Dr. Eick lives in Houston, Texas, with her Fiance, Mike, and their dogs: Cooper, Raoul, Prego, Rocky and Flower, and their cats:  Bob, Petunia and Felipe. When not in these crazy times she loves attending concerts and traveling, and during these times she is so thankful she chose Houston to be her home. She wasn't born in Texas but she got here as soon as she could!
