Virtual Care Options at CHV
When urgent issues arise with your pet or situations leave you unsure if you should bring your pet in to the vet, we offer virtual care options to help give you timely and convenient attention. Virtual Care is ONLY available to active clients at Charleston Harbor Veterinarians who have an existing Veterinarian-Client-Patient-Relationship.
- Teleriage is the safe, appropriate, and timely assessment of animal patients via electronic consultation with their owners. In assessing patient condition electronically, we determine the urgency and the need for immediate referral to a veterinarian, based on the report of history and clinical signs. Often this is completed by phone or text and may be supplemented by photos or videos. A diagnosis is not rendered. The essence of teletriage is to make good and safe decisions regarding a patient’s condition (referral to a veterinarian or not), under times of uncertainty and urgency.
