Telemedicine Consults

Thank you for considering Westgate Pet Clinic’s telemedicine consult service. 

Our telemedicine service is offered by Dr. Deb Reed. She is available Monday-Friday during the following times:

Tuesday 3:00-6:00pm
Wednesday. 3:00-6:00pm
Thursday 2:00-5:00pm
Friday. 10:00am-1:00pm

 

Please call the clinic at 612-925-1121 to schedule an appointment. Telemedicine appointments are typically scheduled within 24 business hours. After your appointment is booked, the clinic will send you a link to initiate a ZOOM call at your scheduled appointment time.

You must be with your pet during the telemedicine call

To be eligible for a telemedicine consult, you must have a valid client-patient-veterinary relationship.  This typically means that your pet has been seen at the clinic within the past 12 months. However, the Board of Veterinary Medicine is temporarily extending this to patients that have been seen at the clinic within the past 18 months.  This new definition is in effect until January 1st, 2021.    

Telemedicine pricing: $55 per call.  Dr. Reed can also do behavior consults over the phone. The fee for a behavior consult is $85. If medications are prescribed during the call, they can be picked up at the clinic.  An invoice is sent to your email after the call.

Conditions in which a telemedicine consult might be considered are:
- Chronic skin conditions that your pet has been seen for in the past
- Dogs only: Coughing or sneezing, but good energy and appetite  For cats, asthma or other serious heart and lung conditions can cause coughing.  Coughing cats require a chest x-ray and should be seen at a veterinary clinic. 
- Vomiting one or two times, but still eating and good energy. 
- Diarrhea, but still eating and good energy.  (Note, we may request that you drop off a stool sample).
- Chronic problems such as lameness and arthritis pain
- Recheck appointments in which your doctor feels like a telemedicine consult is a good option
- Behavior consultations.

We provide the quality care our clients expect and their pets deserve, by relying on the expertise and
