Veterinarian FAQ

What is the difference between Telemedicine and Telehealth?

By definition, Telemedicine gives a doctor the permission to diagnose and, if necessary, treat a patient electronically via phone or computer (i.e. text, chat, FaceTime, etc.). Prescriptions can be ordered, filled and either picked up or delivered with the doctor’s prescription. Telehealth, also known as Tele-triage or Tele-advice, allows a doctor to explain what a problem may be, educate the pet-parent, and suggest or advise a possible solution. In most states, in order to practice Telemedicine, a VCPR (Veterinarian-Client- Patient-Relationship) must exist. If a VCPR does not exist, the veterinarian taking a call can only practice Telehealth and provide only high level support, education, triage, and general medical advice.
