Online Vet Visits
We recognize that telemedicine is a vital tool for helping you get the care you need for your pet especially during the coronavirus pandemic.
Our easy-to-use app allows you to connect to a veterinarian directly. Due to the virtual nature of telemedicine, it can only be used in situations where there is already a strong veterinarian-client-patient relationship. This means you must be a current client of our hospital and your pet must be current on their annual exam. Furthermore, not all medical cases can be solved with a virtual vet visit.
Each consultation will incur a $29 charge prior to connecting with a veterinarian that can be set up within the app. If your pet requires a prescription or further testing within our hospital, these services will incur an additional charge.
Here is a list of appropriate cases for telemedicine:
- Sneezing, coughing, diarrhea, ear infections, or other minor symptoms
- Behavioral changes such as scratching more often than usual or lethargy
- Changes in gait, such as limping
- Discussions regarding ongoing care
In the event of a pet emergency, do not use telemedicine, but call our animal hospital directly at 219-267-1700
Virtual Waiting Room
We recognize that waiting in a lobby may not always be ideal, especially for nervous pets. That's why we have introduced a Virtual Waiting Room! Check-in from home using the chat feature of the app and our team will tell you current wait times. Once your pet is next in line to see the veterinarian, we will send you a message to let you know to head on over. Our team will have a room ready and waiting for you and your pet!
Disclaimer: Wait times are subject to change. If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency please seek immediate veterinary help and bring your pet to the facility.
