Cat and Working


Vet At Your Door embraces the convenience and compassion of veterinary telemedicine, specifically tailored for our feline friends. As a Fear Free Certified team, we provide telemedicine services with a focus on comfort and stress-free interactions. Our approach is designed for existing clients who have had a physical consultation with us in the past 12 months. However, we also offer quality of life consults for both clients and non-clients, ensuring that every cat has access to expert advice and care.

Here are some commonly asked questions that we get about cat telemedicine: 

What is Cat Telemedicine?

Telemedicine for cats is a digital approach to veterinary care, allowing us to offer consultations and advice remotely. At Vet At Your Door, we use this technology to provide continuous care for our existing clients whose cats we have physically examined in the last year. Additionally, we extend our quality of life consults to anyone, client or not, offering advice and support for their feline companions.

How Does Cat Telemedicine Work?

Our process begins with scheduling a virtual appointment, where our veterinarians connect with you via video call. This service is available for existing clients, reinforcing the continuous care for their cats. For those seeking quality of life consultations, we welcome both clients and non-clients, ensuring everyone receives the guidance they need for their cats.

What Conditions Can Be Addressed Through Telemedicine?

Our telemedicine service is perfect for non-emergency issues and ongoing care. We can manage a range of conditions, from skin issues to chronic disease management. For quality of life consultations, we offer comprehensive advice, available to all cat owners regardless of their client status.

Is Telemedicine Safe for My Cat?

Absolutely. While not a replacement for in-person care, telemedicine offers a safe and efficient way to address non-urgent health concerns. At Vet At Your Door, we uphold the highest standards of care in our telemedicine consultations.

Do I Need a Physical Examination for My Cat to Use Telemedicine?

For our regular telemedicine services, a prior physical examination within the last 12 months is required to establish a Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship (VCPR). However, for quality of life consultations, this requirement does not apply, and we are open to assisting all cat owners.

Can Telemedicine Diagnose My Cat's Health Issues?

Telemedicine is effective for discussing symptoms and providing guidance on non-emergency conditions. For existing clients, we can offer more specific advice based on our prior knowledge of your cat's health. In quality of life consultations, we focus on providing general advice and support.

How Can Telemedicine Benefit My Cat?

The primary benefit is the reduction of stress and anxiety for your cat by avoiding the physical trip to a vet clinic. For our existing clients, it allows for continuous and consistent care. Quality of life consults offer everyone the opportunity to discuss their cat's wellbeing in a familiar, comfortable setting.

What If My Cat Needs Emergency Care?

While telemedicine is great for non-emergency issues, it's not suitable for emergencies. In such cases, we advise visiting a veterinarian in person. Our team can guide you on whether a situation warrants an emergency visit.

How Do I Prepare for a Telemedicine Appointment?

Ensure you have a stable internet connection and a device with a camera. It's helpful to have your cat in a quiet, well-lit area during the call. For quality of life consultations, prepare any questions or concerns you have about your cat's health or behavior. We will give you more details about how to sign into the video (it's easy!) before your scheduled telemedicine appointment. 

Can Telemedicine Handle Prescription Needs?

For existing clients, we can manage prescriptions based on our VCPR. We can prescribe medications when appropriate and even have medications dropped off at your home or mailed. For new clients or non-clients seeking quality of life advice, prescription management requires a physical examination or referral to a local veterinarian.

At Vet At Your Door, we are committed to providing expert telemedicine services for your feline companions. Whether you're an existing client or seeking quality of life advice for your cat, we're here to help in a compassionate, professional manner.
