In what situations is telemedicine good for?
Telemedicine is not appropriate for an emergency situation. In case of an emergency, please call us immediately at 616-451-1810 or one of our referral emergency clinics.
We have included an example of ailments which are fit for telemedicine, but please remember that this list does not guarantee your pet will not have to come to the clinic for additional tests or an in-person exam.
The American Veterinary Medical Association and the Michigan Board of Veterinary Medicine require a physical examination within the last year for a veterinarian to diagnose and treat a medical condition and/or to prescribe medications. At this time, neither governing body allows establishing a new doctor-client-patient relationship via virtual means. Once we have established your pet as an active patient, telehealth management is available.
