Telemedicine Emerges as a Care Option for Veterinary Patients

Over the past few weeks as the COVID-19 crisis has unfolded in the U.S., several states have amended their laws to allow the use of telehealth in an effort to provide patients and doctors with a way to interact without physical contact, and the FDA temporarily suspended enforcement of some federal veterinarian-client-patient relationship (VCPR) requirements. Will telemedicine become a permanent part of veterinary clinical practice once COVID-19 is in our rearview mirror? Here are some of the benefits and best practices for implementing telemedicine into your practice.

Best Practices for Veterinary Curbside Check-ins to Stem Coronavirus

Curbside drop-offs and pick-ups at veterinary clinics and hospitals essentially keep pet owners out of the exam room but still connected to the veterinary medical team.
