Through the VirtualVet Telemedicine Program, the Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) is proud to offer clients and referring veterinarians virtual visits and consultations with our clinicians and specialists.
- VMTH clinicians will only conduct a virtual care visit:
- within an existing Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship (VCPR), or
- if the advice is given in an emergency—until that patient can be seen by a veterinarian.
- Without a VCPR, any advice provided through virtual care should be general and not specific to a patient, diagnosis, or treatment.
- VirtualVet uses VetNOW to conduct online visits and consultations with clients and referring veterinarians, ensuring the security of personal and financial details.
