Telemedicine: Is it Here to Stay with Dr. Jeff Werber
Telemedicine is here in veterinary medicine. On my national Steve Dale’s Pet World show, I talk with Dr. Jeff Weber about if connected care or telemedicine will survive past the pandemic, and if it is here to stay.
Werber says 80 pet parents will rush to Dr. Google first, and that number is growing. People are doing this because “I want the answer right now,” and telemedicine may be able to provide that immediacy. It certainly provides social distancing safety. There may be downsides of telemedicine as well, and we talk about that too. It turns out, millennials love telemedicine, and in fact may not consider seeing a veterinarians who doesn’t offer this.
