veterinary hospitals in efficient, empowering and better ways.

- Why was Roo created?
We created Roo because we saw a huge need in the animal industry for hospitals and veterinary professionals to better connect with each other while also becoming more empowered as professionals. On top of providing a simple matching process, we also wanted to provide a forum for quality professionals to be able to better communicate with each other. Financially, with our services, we believe that our platform will help to generate additional income for vets and techs as well as additional revenue for the hospital.
