TELECONSULTING

Options To Suit You and Your Clients

Are you managing a veterinary 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

  • you feel like you can largely manage on your own, but would like a little support

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

Happy pets.  Happy vets.

Please note, that all recommendations are to the doctor on the case - information relayed to the client is ultimately the primary care veterinarian's responsibility.  Look over the recommendations and decide what is best for your patient.  If you have concerns or questions about a recommendation, please do not hesitate to reach out.  With all of these teleconsults, our team does not dispense medical advice directly to the client nor prescribes medications. 

Fees are charged directly to the clinic.  

Please note, teleconsulting is only available for our feline and canine patients at this time. 

 

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

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 events or representative event, including body language, who is present, who behavior is directed at, when events occur, triggers, etc.

  • The names of any trainers involved, if applicable

  • Underlying medical conditions/PE results

  • Current medications

  • Diagnostics performed and important results

  • Treatments already trialed

The Multimedia Combo Teleconsult

This multimedia consult is designed to provide a more comprehensive view of the patient.   We ask you to send us the below information at least 3 days prior to the phone 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.  

Items to be sent at least 3 days prior to the consult:

  • Teleconsult Client Questionnaire filled out by the client.

  • Teleconsult Vet Questionnaire filled out by you. 

  • Your full medical record/any specialist's medical records that may be relevant - include labwork results and any other diagnostics

  • 3-5 short (<3 minute) videos demonstrating the behavior problem +/- a tour of the environment it occurs in uploaded to a personalized Dropbox folder for your patient. The videos should each be labeled with the patients first and last name so we know who its for.  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.

$150

 

The E-consult

This email teleconsult allows our doctor to receive the background info needed and for you to get a written report without committing to the Multimedia Combo 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 Client Questionnaire filled out by the client.

  • Teleconsult Vet Questionnaire filled out by you. 

  • Your full medical record/any specialist's medical records that may be relevant - include labwork results and any other diagnostics

  • 3-5 short (<3 minute) videos demonstrating the behavior problem +/- a tour of the environment it occurs in uploaded to a personalized Dropbox folder for your patient.

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

  • Any information you believe is important to share.

$90

Note, after the background information is reviewed, if the doctor strongly feels a Multimedia Combo Teleconsult is in order, we will inform you and give you the opportunity for your client to upgrade.
