How Much Does it Cost?

TeleVet costs for pet owners depends upon the individual vet clinic through which they communicate. Veterinary clinics pay TeleVet monthly to use their telecommunication services, and the clinic then sets a certain price for their consultations with the pet owner. This can be highly variable depending upon the type of consultation and what problems they are treating.

TelePAWS costs $50 per call with a veterinarian. A 4-pack of appointments can be purchased at a discounted rate of $150.00 as well. You can also sign up for a monthly subscription for $20/month, allowing you to have up to 6 appointments a year with a TelePAWS veterinarian. There are no hidden fees and setting up appointments is quick and easy!

How Does it Work?

Veterinary clinics will determine if they wish to enroll in the services provided by TeleVet. If your regular vet does not pay the monthly fee for TeleVet, you will not be able to use TeleVet to get veterinary care for your pet. If your regular vet is enrolled with TeleVet, you will asked to pay the fees that your vet decides to charge for their time to provide the telemedicine consultation.

With TelePAWS, you will be guaranteed a consultation with an online vet at a time that is convenient for you. After you sign up for the appointment through the TelePAWS website, you will be contacted by a vet who will determine a time to meet through video conference that works for you. You will be given instructions on how to use the app for the meeting with your online vet. The process from start to finish is simple, fast, and easy to understand.
