whiskerDocs and Crum & Forster Pet Insurance Group™ have teamed up to provide telehealth veterinary support at no cost to pet parents in New York during the coronavirus COVID-19 state of emergency, especially beneficial when their veterinarian may not be available. This complimentary offering from whiskerDocs will allow concerned pet parents to ask questions via live chat at www.HelpNYPets.com.
whiskerDocs bridges the gap between pet parents and their local veterinarian by providing real-time decision support. By triaging the pet’s condition, whiskerDocs’ dedicated team of veterinary telehealth specialists from across the US will help pet parents evaluate the level of care the pet requires and locate nearby veterinary hospitals when necessary.
In addition to supporting pet parents with acute concerns about their animal’s health or wellbeing, whiskerDocs can be a valuable resource for education, especially as shelters are emptying, adoption and foster rates are skyrocketing and general veterinary care may be less accessible to new pet owners.
Deb Leon, CEO of whiskerDocs, said, “Our number one priority is safety for the pet, their family and veterinary professionals working on the front lines. This is an unprecedented time for our country and New York is suffering greatly. We are so honored to be partnering with Crum & Forster Pet Insurance Group to help pet families in this hard-hit region that need support.”
