Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Services is now offering pre-screening triage services by
partnering with VetTriage.
When you have a pet emergency our VetTriage veterinarians are on standby 24-hours to triage your pet before coming to the hospital. For a small triage fee, you will connect to the veterinarians on a live video chat session. They will view your pet and let you know if this is an issue that requires immediate emergency care at our hospital or if the situation can be cared for and monitored at home until you see your family veterinarian at their next availability. If your pet needs immediate medical treatment they will coordinate your arrival with our hospital team to ensure seamless service upon arrival.
How VetTriage Works
From your browser or mobile device, click Connect Now, enter your information, and you will be taken to securely purchase your triage session using a major credit card, debit card or your Paypal Account. Triage sessions are fixed rate, regardless of session duration.
Once you complete your purchase, push the Request Session button and you will be connected directly with our next available experienced and licensed veterinarian via your mobile device or computer camera.
Our veterinarian will ask you questions regarding the current status of your beloved pet. Utilizing the information you provide, the doctor will guide you. Should you visit an emergency hospital right away or can the situation be monitored at home with a follow up visit with your family vet the next day? If the doctor recommends an immediate in-person visit to the nearest veterinary E.R., we will find locations close to you.
