(Reuters) - Online pet pharmacy Chewy Inc
Chewy said on Wednesday the service is available free of cost to members of its Autoship program, which automatically ships products to customers and accounts for nearly three quarters of its sales.
Currently, the company's telehealth service is more about providing advice and addressing concerns related to health and wellness of a pet, rather than diagnosing medical conditions or prescribing drugs for pets, Chewy said.
The service is currently available in 35 states, with plans to expand across the United States, the company said.
Traditional telehealth service providers such as Teledoc Health Inc
Chewy's sales have surged recently as more people shop online for pet food and medicine during the pandemic. Its second-quarter sales rose nearly 50% to $1.70 billion.
