whiskerDocs, the national leader in telehealth services for domestic pets (currently dogs and cats), is making 24 hour a day telehealth and telemedicine services available to pet owners across the state of Pennsylvania that need support during the stay-at-home order.
Pet owners can reach a licensed veterinarian or credentialed veterinary technician by phone or online 24 hours a day to get immediate help with medical issues and care questions about their dog or cat.
Deb Leon, Founder and CEO, said, “We are looking forward to providing telemedicine for pets in this great time of need. This is an unprecedented period for our country; the State of Pennsylvania is leading the way for others to follow, providing support to pet owners and veterinary clinics 24 hours a day. We are so honored to be able to help Pennsylvania’s pet families that need support; it is a passion for all of us here at whiskerDocs.”
whiskerDocs provides real-time support through phone, video, email, mobile messaging and live chat for pet parents so that they can get help with problems or symptoms their pets are experiencing. With Pennsylvania opening up the law, whiskerDocs has revised their patented protocols to be able to stabilize mildly ill or uncomfortable pets based upon the presenting conditions and previous medical history.
Nicole Rogers, Vice President of Operations, said, “Pet owners are just as concerned about the welfare of their pets as they are about their other family members. We have been providing on-demand support to millions of pets since 2013, and our number one priority is safety for the pet and the family. Due to the increased need for veterinary support, we have doubled our staff and expanded our services to support Pennsylvania pet owners as their regular clinics are forced to reduce hours and in many cases, close completely. It is our mission to provide support to pet owners as well as their primary veterinarians by filling in the gaps during this most challenging time.”
