An estimated 7 million human patients will be using remote examination services by the end of 2018, and the global telemedicine market is expected to grow nearly 15% through 2020.

A similar trend is expected to take place in veterinary medicine, which is the reason behind a new partnership between Vetsource, an Oregon-based online veterinary pharmacy, and TeleVet, a remote veterinary health care app and online platform.

“Telemedicine will help our customers extend services to where their clients want to consume them,” Vetsource CEO Kurt Green said, “naturally complementing our home delivery services.”

Veterinarians can currently use Vetsource’s ScriptRight ePrescibing tool to write, review, and approve prescriptions for their patients from any web-enabled device. But now, with this new partnership, they can do so after a telehealth visit with a patient through the TeleVet app.

TeleVet allows veterinary practices to diagnose and treat their own patients through video calls, images, and instant messaging where a veterinarian-client-patient relationship has already been established.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with a company as focused as we are on helping veterinary practices and enhancing the client-patient relationship,” TeleVet Co-founder and CEO Steven Carter said. “We look forward to learning and growing with Vetsource to further expand our virtual healthcare services into the veterinary space.”

TeleVet and Vetsource are currently working to seamlessly integrate their services so veterinarians can deliver better, more convenient care to their patients.
