The Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) is proud to offer VirtualVet visits for consultations with referring veterinarians, as well as for clients and patients who have an existing Veterinary-Client-Patient-Relationship (VCPR) with the VMTH, using the VetNOW virtual care platform.
VirtualVet visits and referring veterinarian consultations are available by scheduled appointment only.
Because of COVID-19, pet owners cannot currently enter VMTH exam rooms.
But, with VirtualVet, they can virtually sit in on their pet’s exams
from their car, ask questions in real time, and talk to their pet.
For VirtualVet appointments with clients, VMTH clinicians and specialists can use visits, when appropriate, for rechecks and follow-up appointments, such as after a spay or neuter procedure, after treating wounds or skin infections, to help with some behavioral problems, client education, and many other issues.
VirtualVet visits can also help owners decide if a concern about your animal is serious enough to warrant a visit to the VMTH or if it is something we can help you manage at home.
Before you can use the VirtualVet program, you and your pet must have a standing VCPR with the VMTH and must have had at least one in-person VMTH visit.
For Referring Veterinarians
General practitioner referring veterinarians can use VirtualVet to consult with our specialists when additional input and support are needed to aid in patient care, when travel to the VMTH may not be feasible, or when a client wants confirmation that a referral is truly the best option for the patient’s health and care.
Veterinarians receive a written report summarizing the consultation and possible recommendations following each consultation.
