Remote Pet Care at IVC
In a world that requires social distancing to remain safe and healthy, there are a few things that may seem too difficult to do remotely, like visiting the vet! However here at Independence Veterinary Clinic, we’ve established an awesome way to ensure that our current clients and patients can always visit us, all from the comfort of their homes.
TeleVet is a mobile app that gets pets back to health by safely conducting veterinary telemedicine consults and follow-ups with pet owners from anywhere. Did we mention it’s the most trusted solution in veterinary telemedicine? Because we only want the absolute best for you and your fur family.
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is a subcategory of telehealth (the overarching term that encompasses all uses of technology geared to remotely deliver health information) that is a tool to augment the practice of veterinary medicine (using an app to communicate with a client and visualize the patient for examination and discussion).
Issues commonly addressed through TeleVet
- Postoperative follow-up
- Dermatologic concerns
- Behavioral issues/training
- Hospice care
- Basic triage (whether the pet should be seen by the veterinarian)
- Environmental concerns/hazards that might contribute to a particular condition
- Long-term care monitoring

When you need to visit the clinic, all you have to do is create a consultation request detailing your pet’s issue. To give us more background, you can upload pictures and videos, instant messages, and talk with us face to face through a video conference call to help get your pet feeling better again. Pretty cool, right?
