As with any medical exam or procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. These risks include, but may not be limited to:
In rare cases, information transmitted by a pet owner may not be sufficient (e.g. poor photo resolution or slow wifi) to allow our telehealth veterinarian to appropriately assess your pet. As such, a delay in medical evaluation or treatment could occur.
In rare cases, a lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors.
I understand that a variety of alternative methods of medical care may be available to the patient (my pet), and that I may choose one or more of these at any time. I understand that I may expect benefits for the patient from the use of telehealth, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured.
