About Us

More informed decisions about your dog's health

Our Story

Doggo Health was inspired by founder Sunny Shao’s rescue dog Luka. As a dog lover and dog owner for most of her life, this was Sunny’s first time adopting a dog, and found herself researching online for a lot of dog health and wellness information. When Sunny met Dr. Elizabeth Davis in Spring 2020, the two of them bonded over their mutual love for dogs and innovative ways of approaching veterinary science in a post-COVID19 era. 

By connecting dog owners to veterinary science and data differently, Doggo Health is reimagining how pet owners navigate health advice for their dogs, as they are often faced with conflicting information from different aspects of the pet world.

Together their vision is to help dog owners everywhere access reliable, trustworthy education and advice about their dog’s health, with a focus on personalized, preventative health.

Doggo Health aims to enhance the human-canine bond for advancing mutual healthcare innovation
