You’ve had a long week at work and you walk in to find that your little Fluffy isn’t feeling so fluffy. Sound familiar? We know you’re busy and your time is valuable so we are excited to introduce TeleMedicine through TeleVet.
How Televet Works. TeleVet is a great way to consult with your Vets right here at Town N Country without bringing your pet in for a visit. Simply download the TeleVet app on your phone by going here, search for TNC by entering your zip code and request a consult. Within 24 hours one of our amazing staff will set up an appointment for a virtual consult for you and Fluffy. You can then instant message with our vets or chose a video consult. You can also upload photos and/or videos.
When You Can TeleVet. We are excited to offer this service on weekdays from 9am until 11pm, or weekends from noon until 11pm. While this service is amazing, per North Carolina law, your pet must have been seen in our office for an in person exam within the last 12 months to qualify.
What Types of Illness Does it Cover? While TeleVet is a convenient way to consult with us without bringing your pet in, it isn’t for everything. It’s great for minor ear infections, follow up appointments, consultations, future treatment plans and services that don’t require diagnostics or severe infections. An in person visit would be needed for more severe skin and ear infections and more complex issues.
So whether it’s been a long week, it’s rainy and cold, or it’s just not convenient to leave home, TeleMedicine through TeleVet may be a great option for you and your pet. Download the app today to begin or contact our office with any questions!
