TELECONSULTING

Teleconsulting Options To Suit You and Your Clients Needs

Are you managing a behavior case and would like some assistance?  Feeling a little in over your head?

 

While not the same as a consultation directly with us, teleconsulting can help clients who:

  • live too far to benefit from our services in person

  • are waiting for an appointment with us

  • or those that probably need us but are simply not ready to come see us yet.  

The below teleconsulting options are designed to suit your needs. Urgent appointments can be arranged.

The No Fuss Teleconsult

Get answers faster.

A 20 minute phone teleconsult

for a quick, practical way to run through your case with an expert.

 

The No Fuss Phone Teleconsult

Comprehensive Teleconsult

The Email Teleconsult

This quick consult is designed to be a no fuss, efficient way for you and your client to get some tips to help move the patient in the right direction.  In this 20 minute phone appointment, you round us on the case and we give you whatever feedback we can in the time allotted to help you move the case forward.  Follow up phone appointments can be scheduled as needed as new information is obtained.  Appointments can generally be scheduled within the week so are perfect for urgent situations.

 

Helpful checklist of information to have on hand before these appointments:

  • Signalment 

  • Presenting complaint

  • Description of representative event, including body language, who is present, when events occur, etc.

  • The names of any trainers involved, if applicable

  • Underlying medical conditions/PE results

  • Current medications

  • Diagnostics performed and important results

  • Treatments already trialed

Cost: $60.  Call to schedule.

This phone consult is designed to provide a more comprehensive view of the patient, and provide you with a written report so you can better help your client.  We ask you to send us the below information at least 3 days prior to the consult.  We review all this information in advance of the appointment.  The phone conversation is used to clarify details and make verbal recommendations.  These teleconsults will be followed up with a written report including any relevant handouts.  

Recommended items to be sent at least 3 days prior to the consult:

  • Teleconsult Behavior Questionnaire (___link___) filled out by the client.

  • Your medical record/any specialist's medical records that may be relevant

  • 3-5 short (<3 minute) videos demonstrating the behavior problem +/- a tour of the environment it occurs in uploaded here. Please instruct clients that aggressive episodes should not be incited or prolonged just to get a video.

  • Any notes/homework assignments from any trainers involved, if applicable.

Cost: $180.  Call to schedule. 

This email teleconsult allows our doctor to receive the background info needed and for you to get a written report without committing to the comprehensive teleconsult.  Once we receive all of the following items, we will review the case and send back a report with recommendations within the week.

Required items:

  • Teleconsult Behavior Questionnaire (___link___) filled out by the client.

  • Your medical record/any other specialist's medical records that may be relevant

  • 3-5 short (<3 minute) videos demonstrating the behavior problem +/- a tour of the environment it occurs in uploaded here. Please instruct clients that aggressive episodes should not be incited or prolonged just to get a video.

  • Any notes/homework assignments from any trainers involved, if applicable.

  • Any information you believe is important to share.

Cost: $90.  Note, if once background information is reviewed the doctor strongly feels a Comprehensive Teleconsult is in order, we will inform you and give you the opportunity for your client to upgrade.

Email follow-up with the primary care veterinarian pertaining to the case is available for 1 month after each teleconsult. 

 

Please note, that all recommendations to the client are ultimately the primary care veterinarian's responsibility.  If you have concerns or questions about a recommendation, please do not hesitate to reach out.  You may have important information that we do not have.  With all of these teleconsults, our team does not dispense medical advice directly to the client nor prescribes medications.
