Remote Veterinary Care

Telemedicine

In order to continue to serve you and your pets, we are now offering digital consultations for established patients (patients who have had an in-office exam within the last 12 months)!

Remote Access To Veterinary Care

While telemedicine without an in-clinic exam for your pet is not ideal for every type of concern, some medical appointments, progress exams, triage services, and various consultations in real-time can be performed directly from the comfort of your own home.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine is a great way to have your pet evaluated by one of our veterinarians without having to come to the office. This is a great option if your pet gets fearful or anxious in the car or during his exam in the veterinary office. Or sometimes it’s easier to not leave the house and to avoid traffic. Your pet must have had a physical exam by one of our veterinarians within the last 12 months to utilize this service. Another great use for our telemedicine service is to get quick access to your veterinarian for a consultation.
