Telemedicine has historically been an innovative part of human medicine well before smartphones had been introduced to the market. That said, the virtual care movement is in full swing given the rise and advancement in mobile technology. We can now access care in veterinary medicine quite seamlessly through virtual care apps, which enable you to connect with your veterinarian from the comfort of your own home or workplace. It saves you a trip to the vet and provides the peace of mind and convenience that a pet parent is looking for in the modern-day veterinary practice.
Telemedicine is NOT for emergencies and does not take the place of an in-person exam. We are offering this service to try our best to offer you services in any way possible during this difficult and stressful time. If you have questions regarding if your pet should be seen please call our office directly at (508) 775-4521 or Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists at Buzzards Bay during off hours at (508) 759-5125.
