Frequently Asked Questions
- What is Roo?
Our goal is to connect quality veterinary professionals with animal hospitals
by providing a brand new online veterinary staffing platform and community.
Through our website and eventual mobile application, Roo enables hospitals
to fulfill short-term personnel needs in real time, while allowing high-quality
professionals to secure freelance work at the click of a button.
Both sides provide information on service types, skills and preferences,
ensuring full transparency and the best matching.
Beyond the platform, Roo aims to empower a community of smart,
trustworthy, agile, and resilient veterinary professionals who value flexibility
and work-life balance.

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.
