We here at Animal Kind are excited to announce the offering of telemedicine for current clients and patients. During uncertain times and needing to increase our time at home, we are thrilled to offer a virtual consultation platform.
While we understand that staying indoors as much as possible is important, we also understand that veterinary issues can still arise.
In order to help keep your outdoor exposure to a minimum, Animal Kind is initiating a telemedicine service. This means that you can connect with the same doctors you know and trust; now from the comfort of your home.

You will need to download the TeleTails mobile app and enter our code ANIMALKIND. The TeleTails team is happy to walk you through the set-up process if you need help!
WHO QUALIFIES FOR TELEHEALTH?
Currently, only clients with smartphones will be able to utilize this service. TeleTails connects you with our veterinary team. You will not be talking to a third-party veterinarian. Consultations will cost $50 for the first 20 minutes of your appointment. Please understand that after our consultation, an in-person physical exam may still be recommended (at an additional cost).
Please see below for a list of ailments which are generally suitable for telemedicine consultation:
- Problems involving the skin, such as a rashes, hair loss, etc.
- Coughing, sneezing, and/or congestion
- Gastrointestinal upset, such as vomiting and/or diarrhea
- Recheck of minor wounds and post-surgery site checks
- Nutritional counseling

As always, if you feel your pet is experiencing an emergency, call the office to come in and see a veterinarian as soon as possible. Certain conditions such as seizures, respiratory distress, straining to urinate, cardiac concerns, and excessive vomiting and diarrhea will require you to bring your pet into the office and have an in-clinic exam with one of our veterinarians.
We can’t wait to meet you and your pet virtually! Here are instructions on accessing this service. You can participate in live messaging and video visits with our team using your smartphone or tablet.
