Cimarron Animal Hospital is now offering Telehealth Consults (also called Telemedicine)- Virtual Veterinary Health Care – for our patients! While there is a fee, it’s still less expensive for you AND less stressful for your pet! They are a nice way to do recheck exams- when the Doctor doesn’t need to lay hands on the pet. We can communicate through Skype, Face Time or Phone. We will have a private texting app available soon as well!
Our Doctors do have to have a “valid Veterinary-Client-Patient Relationship” to be able to do Telehealth Consults. The Doctor participating in the virtual care communication needs to have seen a patient, in person, within at least a year. They need to be intimately knowledgeable of the pet’s current medical condition and have established a relationship with members of the pet’s family. If any of those factors is not in place, a Telehealth Consult is not appropriate.
Some examples of how we might use Telehealth Consults:
- Rechecks after surgery
- Allergy rechecks
- Diet and Medication change rechecks/ consults
- Behavioral Consults
