Online Assessment & Support

We are the only ones in the UK offering our hospice and palliative veterinary care knowledge to you in your living room

Telemedicine is increasing in demand for human and pet health. During the difficult time of the lockdown in spring 2020 it was evident that face to face meetings were far from ideal or in some instances impossible without putting yourself or staff at risk of infection. Although it comes with restrictions, we find remote consulting a helpful tool in guiding and supporting you with your pet.

These remote clinical services give our vets to opportunity to get to know you and your pet and to even see them.

We offer the following type of Dignipets consultations online:

Online vet visit hospice and palliative care 1 hour: Monday-Friday

Keep in mind that the consults are online, and they prevent us from properly examining your pet. We won’t be able to prescribe medication based on an online consult. We will be able to advise you, make a comprehensive plan with a report for you and your family practice and refer you to helpful services.

What does an online vet visit require?

We use skype, whatsapp or any other way we can get in touch with you and you can show us your pet and talk to us face to face. We are very happy if you allow us to request your pet’s history from your pet’s primary care vet. This will allow us to prepare better for the online visit in general.

Online vet visits advantages

In our current busy day and age there can be many benefits of making an online appointment with one of our vets or nurses. An online vet visit can be a good way of finding out if Dignipets is the right veterinary service for you and your pet. Because it saves our vets and nurses time driving we can offer it more affordable than a home visit.

Getting support after the initial comfort care visit or in between visits can be very helpful. Maybe you want to show us how you are giving the medication to your pet? Or how the response is to certain pain relief?

The list goes on and on….
