I recently spoke with Eric Shank, the founder and CEO of a new veterinary company, Petzam.
Petzam helps facilitate live video chats between clients and veterinarians in order to better help diagnose pets.
One of the biggest barriers to veterinary telemedicine in the past has been assuring a veterinary client-patient relationship. In most cases, what is needed to establish this relationship legally is an in person physical exam by the veterinarian of the patient within the previous year. One of Petzam's core values is protecting the veterinary client-patient relationship, which I appreciate.
Have you used telemedicine before? Would a service like this be helpful?
