Telepet is Pawssum’s Vet Telemedicine Solution
If your pet becomes unwell while you are ‘self-isolating’ or ‘social distancing’, you may consider calling a vet for advice before you visit a veterinary practice. At Pawssum, we find many health concerns can be dealt with safely and effectively via an online video consultation or live text chat. Our partner vets are available Australia-wide till late consultations are only $49 or free for our Wellness plan members.
Stay well and safe everyone!
