Austin startup Televet raises $2 million. Televet operates a platform that gives veterinarians and pet owners more ability to communicate between visits. The startup, which was originally called Horse Facts, was founded in 2015. Televet’s technology won’t eliminate visits to a veterinarian’s office, but is said to supplement those visits. The platform can be used to check on how an animal is doing post-visit or to share a diagnosis and treatment plan, lets vets receive and schedule virtual consultations, connect via text, call or video chat.
