Teleconsultation

Teleconsultation

This section of the website is for clients who already have a confirmed teleconsultation appointment booked with the practice. If you are concerned about the health of your pet and do not currently have an appointment booked, please call the practice before completing this page.

In order to get the most out of your teleconsultation, please gather the following information prior to your appointment. This should take around five minutes to complete. This information will be sent to the vet performing your pet’s consultation so that they can discuss it with you on the call. This will help them decide the best possible approach to treating your pet. Following your teleconsultation, the vet may recommend examining your pet further at the practice.

If, since booking your appointment, your pet’s symptoms have changed significantly or deteriorated, please phone us.

DO NOT do anything that may risk your personal safety or that of your pet.
