Video Vet Visit

Video Vet Visit at Home with Boca Palms Animal Hospital, Boca Raton, FL

At Boca Palms, we understand that it’s not always possible to make it to our hospital for veterinary care. That’s why we’re proud to offer telemedicine in Boca Raton, FL.

How to Get Started

It starts with a phone call to us at 561-395-4030.  We will discuss the details behind the request for a video consultation and will review your request with our veterinarian.

Should the veterinarian agree the video vet visit is appropriate, we will arrange a convenient time for you to meet with our veterinarian. Should our veterinarian determine an in-person visit is necessary, we will schedule a visit to Boca Palms Animal Hospital.

When is Veterinary Telemedicine Appropriate?

Video vet calls, while wildly convenient, do have their limitations. Your veterinarian can only assess so much about your pet over a video call, so it’s important to realize that not all situations are appropriate for telemedicine. If you think your pet is having an emergency, call us immediately at 561-395-4030.

Here are some situations where telemedicine is helpful:

  • Follow-up appointment after surgery
  • Check-in after starting a new treatment plan
  • Skin conditions
  • Minor symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, or mild vomiting/diarrhea
  • Gait issues
  • Nutritional or behavioral concerns
  • General health questions or concerns

Please note that our telemedicine services are offered to our existing clients and patients. If you are a new client, please contact us at 561-395-4030 so we can get to know you better before using video vet conferencing.
