At VCMC, we understand how much the current COVID-19 situation impacts everyone, from our pet parents, to our community, to our staff. Our top priority is to continue to serve our patients while minimizing the risk to our clients and team.
We are proud to introduce Telemedicine to our list of services. Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication technology, such as video conferencing, to allow veterinarians to diagnose and treat patients remotely. While many illnesses and injuries will still need to be treated in person, telemedicine will allow us to evaluate minor issues in your pets while practicing responsible "social distancing".
What types of appointments and illnesses/injuries can be treated through telemedicine?
- Dermatology/Skin Issues
- Lameness/Mobility Issues
- Progress Exams
- Suture/Incision Checks
- And More!
Scheduling a telemedicine exam is easy! Simply call our office at
973-887-0522 and ask a receptionist if telemedicine is right for your pet.
Not tech-savvy?? Don't worry! After scheduling, you will receive an email with a link for your appointment. Simply click the link at your scheduled appointment time to meet with your veterinarian!
If you are using a desktop or laptop, there is no need to download or sign up for anything! If you would like to use a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, simply download the Google Hangouts Meet app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
If you have any questions about telemedicine, or any of our other services, give us a call at 973-887-0522.
