Benefits of Telehealth Vet Medicine
As our society rapidly transitions to the digital age where food can be delivered to our doors without ever having to leave the house and people having the ability to watch any TV show or movie from the comfort of our homes, wouldn’t it be awesome if you could visit your veterinarian without leaving your home too?
The benefits of telehealth are endless, providing a convenient, safe, and quick way for vets to quickly diagnose any issues with your pet. While scheduling an in-person visit is usually required for more advanced care, telehealth services can be used in a variety of ways, including:
- New puppy and kitten advice
- Behavioral consultations
- Dietary recommendations
- Post-surgical check-ups
- Weight management
- Medication refills
- And much more
Given the COVID-19 pandemic, many people feeling unsafe visiting public places so scheduling a virtual vet visit may be the perfect option for you and your pet.
Although telehealth can be used to complement a variety of veterinary care services we provide, it cannot take the place of a comprehensive physical exam and in-house diagnostic testing. However, it’s ideal for progress exams and follow-ups or for pets or clients with limited mobility. If you think your furry pal’s condition is suited for a telehealth appointment, please contact us.
