I’m fortunate to have an AAHA vet taking care of my dog, Sugar. I love Sugar’s vet personal and loving services. Every time Sugar visits her vet, she always perform a very thorough examination and provides me great advice. If Sugar has a health issue, she makes sure to follow-up via a phone call.
Sugar had several health emergencies; typically when her vet is closed. My first resource to care for Sugar’s health emergency is to take her to a 24/7 Animal Hospital. Some of these health emergencies were minor. At that time, I wish there were other resources besides going to a 24hr vet hospital.
Vet On Demand App: Vet 24/7 365 Days
Vet on Demand is a new resource and way to get pet health help. Vet On Demand is an app you download on your mobile device such as an iPhone. Vet On Demand is the first mobile application to provide personalized real-time access experienced licensed veterinarian help via e-care or e-health and also known as telemedicine. It means that one of Vet On Demand registered veterinarian (most of whom have their own practices) will provide you pet health help using telecommunications technology. You and your dog will have the privilege to chat with a licensed veterinarian anywhere from your smart phone.
“Veterinarians often use two skills to diagnose most common pet health conditions; by looking and listening. These are the two skills that Vet On Demand veterinarians focus when you chat with them.”
I had an opportunity to test Vet On Demand before it was officially released. Even though the app was for iPhone only, I was able to download it on my iPad. Since we’ve been going on many long road trips, I asked Dr. Phil two questions: 1) ways to assist me handling Sugar’s UTI and 2) ways to determine dehydration. I had a wonderful video chat with Dr. Phil, and he was able to see Sugar. He was amazed and complimented how great Sugar looks at 13 yrs old. My brief chat with Dr. Phil provided me additional ways to care for Sugar during our travels.
Every pet should have access to the care they deserve. – Vet On Demand
