Probably one of our favorite uses for telemedicine! Telemedicine rechecks can be used for a wide range of conditions including routine post-operative rechecks, dermatology (skin) rechecks that don't require in house testing, and really any condition where the patient simply needs a visual check in but does not require in house testing or palpation (hands on) assessments. Even orthopedic conditions can be re-assessed using a good quality video submitted through a telemedicine recheck appointment platform. This type of recheck also allows the client to have a one on one consultation with the doctor so that any remaining questions or advice on future management can be discussed. The best part is your pet remains in the comfort of your own home.
Recheck appointments are for patients that are already clients of the doctor performing the recheck. If your pet is a Homestead Vet Sports Med & Rehab patient, simply contact us through the widget in the lower right hand corner of this website to get started!
