Jay Brown, DVM, MS
Dr. Brown is also a veterinarian in the USA and has had successful careers in practice, academia, and the animal health industry prior to founding Vetgate Global & Vet Check-in. These two Software as a Service (SaaS) businesses have developed innovative features to assist veterinary practices in Practice Marketing, Client Communications, & Practice Compliance Analytics.
Dr. Brown previously spent 20 years in the veterinary pharmaceutical industry with Merck AgVet & Merial, after his University of Illinois CVM academic career. In addition, he founded and built a successful practice which continues today.
During his animal health industry career he provided technical marketing support for some of the most innovative products developed to improve the health & well being of animals.
Vetgate Global & Vet Check-in services are used by hundreds of practices in the U.S. and Canada. They were developed after Dr. Brown had visited 1000’s of practices throughout his career and noticed a lack of standardized practice marketing services, little to no proactive, outbound client communications, and no easy method of practice analytics being employed by veterinary practices and their staff.
These SaaS services have helped practices grow revenue and retain clients over the past 12 years.
