Only veterinary hospitals that are enrolled in VCCF can offer low- or no-cost services to clients.

5. Teleadvice and Telemedicine Provides Lower Cost Veterinary Care

The TelePAWS has experienced/dedicated veterinarians to advise pet owners on preventive care options for their pets. The convenience and comfort (for pets and owners) of being able to ‘visit’ a veterinarian from home can be an invaluable experience for many. Because pet telemedicine is a relatively new service, there may be hesitation and skepticism. With the right online vet, the experience should be comfortable, easy, and informative. Be prepared for a lot of questions. The more information that the veterinarian gets about your pet, the better the advice and prognosis. Clients can access TelePAWS’ low-cost vet services from anywhere in the U.S.
