Teleadvice has been used for many years to treat people’s illnesses and provide a convenient way for doctors to treat their patients. Did you know that teleadvice is also available for your pets as well?
We will discuss the use of teleadvice and what you can expect when you make an appointment with an online vet at TelePAWS.
1. When Would I Use an Online Vet?
Have you considered using an online vet for your pet’s needs? We are here when you don’t have the time to take your pet to your local vet hospital. Perhaps you live a long distance from a hospital or you will be unable to get an appointment with them sooner than you expected. TelePAWS online vets are available at a time that is convenient for you.
If your pet is terrified of the vet hospital, try using an online vet. Your pet will have no idea that they are being seen by a veterinarian in the comfort of their own home. If you dread the idea of dragging your cat or dog to see their vet, we are here to help.
Online vets at TelePAWS can help with many different illnesses and concerns that pet owners see regularly. Common problems we advise on most often are skin allergies resulting in itchy skin and skin infections, ear infections, urinary tract infections, arthritis, anxiety and other behavioral problems, food allergies, upper respiratory infections, intestinal parasites (worms), diarrhea, vomiting, superficial bite wounds, and much more.
2. When You Sign Up For an Appointment
At TelePAWS, we have created a simple website for you to use. Just visit www.TelePAWS.com to get started.
When you are ready to set up an appointment with a vet, click on the button that says, Request an Appointment, and fill out the form.
3. How Long Does it Take?
Once you have submitted the online form, you can expect a vet to contact you by text or email within a few hours. They will then set up a time for the appointment that works best for you.
Appointments typically last anywhere from 5-30 minutes depending upon the complexity of the problem. You will be given ample time to have your questions answered.
4. What Will You Need?
TelePAWS appointments take place through teleconference using an app called Zoom.
You can download this app for free on your computer, cell phone, or tablet. If you have a bigger pet or your pet is not able to move easily, it is best to use a phone or tablet that you can take to your pet in order for the vet to get a visual look at him/her through the video.
5. How Do I Get Prescriptions?
New laws and regulations regarding prescriptions have severely limited TelePAWS from issuing prescriptions. If you need a prescription, you may need to make a traditional appointment with your local veterinarian.
If you have concerns about your pet and need help from a reliable, trusted source, visit TelePAWS for the best online vet care available.
