About Vedi

Our story.

As a veterinary radiologist, Dr Steve Joslyn experienced firsthand the frustrations of poor data management. X-rays with notes attached for the wrong animal – even the wrong species – were an almost daily occurrence.  

The more he spoke with other vets, the more he realised how widespread the problem was. Mix-ups at the lab, unregistered microchips and missing vaccination paperwork were just the start of it. Not to mention the admin and manual data entry at every turn – so many back-and-forth calls, emails, faxes, paperwork and forms. It all made a hard job even harder.  

In 2017, Steve teamed up with Ross Wyness and Anton Tjea to found Vedi – a vet-tech company dedicated to smarter, connected veterinary care.

Vedi practices run effortlessly on error-free health data – they have better health records, less admin and can connect to labs, microchip registries and more at the touch of a button.

But what’s truly unique about Vedi is that it locks an animal’s vital health information to their microchip – meaning their health records go wherever they do. Emergency hospitals, shelters, new owners and more can now offer animals true continuity of care – with access to the information they need to do their best work.

‍At Vedi, we’re building a better future for vets and pets through trusted data.

Meet the founders

It started with Steve, who had already felt the full brunt of working with poor quality data and manual, siloed systems during his role as a specialist radiologist. He knew there had to be a better way.

Enter Ross, our commercially minded startup enthusiast, and Anton, our tech genius and software developer.

Together, the three friends turned business partners, set about creating a digital solution to tidy up veterinary health records – and so VetDB was born!
