The Innovation in Livestock award, presented at the annual Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show, in Woodstock, Ontario acknowledges outstanding contributions to the agricultural sector, emphasizing pioneering solutions that improve the efficiency and work-life balance of large animal veterinarians. VETSon’s triumph is a testament to its dedication to revolutionizing animal health and welfare through innovation. 

The award-winning VETSon telemedicine platform provides a mobile app for farmers to connect with their veterinarian through video visits. Where the farmer can show in real-time issues with their animals as it is occurring and ability to order medication and have it delivered direct to the farm, all while enjoying the interactions being automatically recorded for the veterinary and farm record keeping. The platform allows veterinarians to be able to serve more clients in a day, and farms get more rapid access to service. VETSon is looking towards future, and will be adding animal health sensors and point-of-care tests so veterinarians can get even more data direct from the farm to help farmers make the best decision possible for the productivity of their farm as well as health and welfare of their animals.

“We are incredibly honoured to receive the Innovation in Livestock award at Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show,” said Dr. Glen Yates, Chief Veterinary Officer at VETSon. “This recognition underscores our commitment to pushing the boundaries of telemedicine innovation in large animal veterinary practice.
