The VVS service was introduced to our practice about a year ago as a cardiology
second opinion service but quickly expanded to other disciplines.
For me and all the vets in the practice, this was the very first contact to the much-talked-about telemedicine.
We were pleasantly surprised to find that VVS provided all the necessary kit to start the service
immediately and the support to use the tools has been extremely good from start.
The veterinary specialists are extremely helpful and patient to explain clearly the different
conditions and they always take extra time to improve my knowledge and, in case of the cardiology
service, my ultrasound scanning skills.
Communication is definitely one of the strongest points. The VVS specialists help us achieve a
diagnosis quicker, formulate a treatment plan and pass the information on to the clients in a clear way.
The real benefit for me is being able to follow up a case that otherwise would have been referred
elsewhere with little chance for me to learn the diagnostic process or the treatment; doing so I
can also improve my practical skills under the guidance of a specialist.
